What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
The outermost layer of our tooth enamel is worn away gradually as we age and that gleam of our pearly whites disappears over time. Other normal causes of teeth discoloration that we can correct includes:
- Nicotine stains caused by smoking or chewing tobacco products
- Beverages such as coffee, tea, soda and wine
- Acidic foods like citrus can wear away the enamel
- Prescription medication like tetracycline
- Genetics can also play a roll in tooth discoloration
- Poor oral hygiene
Dr. Riddle offers at-home and in-office gel treatments which are comprised of hydrogen peroxide that break down stubborn stains, revealing a white, more luminous smile without compromising their integrity.
In-office teeth whitening uses a chemically activated bleaching treatment that takes less than hour. The gel is applied using a protective tray, activated chemically and enhanced with light therapy. You then follow up with a take home whitening get to continue the whitening process.
At-home teeth whitening is for the patient that prefers the convenience of a take-home teeth whitening kit. Custom trays using impressions of your teeth will be made to hold the gel in place over your teeth. It only takes 30 minutes a day to reveal tremendously brighter, whiter results. Repeat the procedure for up to 10 days.
