Stained or discolored teeth can stop you from smiling freely and confidently in social settings. Your teeth are prone to discoloration and surface stains owing to a variety of reasons, such as:
- Foods and drinks like coffee, wine, and tea.
- With age, the enamel gets thinner with brushing which exposes more of the dentin.
- Use of tobacco.
- Trauma or injury
- Certain medications such as antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications.
- Several diseases affect the enamel and dentin of the teeth which causes teeth discoloration. Treatments for certain conditions can also affect tooth color.
The best way to improve the color of your teeth in a safe and effective way is through professional whitening treatments. These have been proven to be extremely beneficial in helping people achieve teeth that are several shades lighter in a single visit.
At Complete Family Dentistry, we use state of the art Opalescence whitening system. Opalescence whitening treatment makes use of a professional strength whitening gel which contains potassium nitrate and peroxide. The potassium nitrate helps in reduce post-treatment sensitivity. The whitening gel is filled in custom trays and placed over the teeth, where it reacts with the stains to remove them. When you visit our office for teeth whitening treatment, we will first determine the cause of your tooth stains and conduct an assessment of your overall dental health. If your oral health is good and only surface stains are the problem; we will apply a professional strength whitening gel onto your teeth and allow it to work on the stains. The gel is then washed off and your perfectly white smile is ready for the world to see.
