Two Major Types of Tooth Discoloration
Extrinsic discoloration occurs when the enamel, or the outer layer of the tooth, becomes stained. This is usually attributed to certain foods and beverages including coffee, wine, and soda; smoking can also cause this type of damage.
Intrinsic discoloration means that the internal structure of the tooth, called the dentin, has become darkened or acquired a yellow tint. This can have a range of causes, including overexposure to fluoride or certain antibiotics at a young age, or a physical trauma to one or more of your teeth.
Whatever the cause of your discoloration, most people would prefer a brighter, whiter smile, which is evidenced by the huge popularity of tooth whitening treatments.
Teeth Whitening At Home, Or At a Dentists Office?
Teeth whitening can be done with or without the assistance of a dentist, but we recommend a visit to our office if you are interested in whitening your teeth. Many in-home treatments are available to help you brighten your smile on your own time, including special toothpastes, gels, rinses, and strips. Perhaps you’ve tried some of these before and been dissatisfied with the results. As with most things, your best bet is to leave it to a professional!
All teeth whitening products contain a bleaching agent which strips away the yellowed appearance of your teeth and restores them to a brilliant white. However, over-the-counter products for at-home use typically contain a much lower amount of this active ingredient. DIY products typically have about a 10% to 22% carbamide peroxide content, equivalent to about 3% hydrogen peroxide. Compare that to the products offered in the dentist office: professionally applied whitening products contain a 15% to 43% concentration of hydrogen peroxide.
Another thing that makes a professional dentist teeth whitening treatments more effective is the trays that are used. Application trays come included with many over-the-counter teeth whitening products, but these offer a one-size-fits-all approach when the human mouth is anything but! With the assistance of a professional dentist, you can have trays custom-made based on impressions of your teeth. Customized to fit your mouth exactly, these personalized trays ensure maximum contact between your teeth and the whitening agent, while also minimizing the contact between the whitening gel and your gums, reducing discomfort and irritation.
Finally, a consultation with a dentist can ensure that your treatment approach is the best option for your particular needs. Teeth can become discolored in many ways, and only a professional can identify the type and extent of the stains you’re experiencing, then match your particular case with the best available treatment.
For these reasons, involving a professional can make a huge difference in the speed and effectiveness of your tooth whitening treatments. Forget about the trial-and-error process of different drug store products. Contact our office today and let a highly trained dentist help you achieve the pearly whites you’ve been dreaming of!
