Causes of Dental Discoloration

There are many reasons why teeth may become discolored, and only certain cases can be treated with traditional teeth whitening. Some of the most common causes of dental discoloration include:

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

When teeth are stained, a chemical reaction is needed to break down the bonds between teeth and the staining pigments. In the case of dental discoloration, the necessary reaction is oxidation, and hydrogen or carbamide peroxide is used to create this chemical reaction and lift stains from teeth. Some DIY whitening plans recommend rinsing teeth with pure or diluted peroxide. However, this will be largely ineffective. This is because saliva will go to work neutralizing this agent immediately. Best case scenario, nothing will happen, but worst-case scenario, you can damage soft tissue. Instead, patients should use an application tray to keep the peroxide on teeth where it belongs and keep saliva from neutralizing the whitening agent.

Over the counter whitening kits have very low doses of whitening agent, and even the best fitting application device won’t keep neutralizing saliva off of teeth for long. To see real results, you need professional doses of whitening gel combined with a custom application tray fitted to your smile.

Professional At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits

Our professional take-home teeth whitening kits use custom doses of professional grade whitening agent. Depending on unique needs, we recommend patients apply this whitening gel using a custom application tray for ten to thirty minutes at a time. Over the course of about two weeks of daily applications, patients see their smile gradually brighten between six and ten shades.

Maintaining Your Teeth Whitening Results

Once you’ve achieved the bright white smile you desire, the longevity of your results will depend in large part on your habits. Patients who brush and floss daily as directed, avoid tobacco use, limit consumption of dark colored foods and drinks, and visit our team every six months for checkups and professional teeth cleanings will likely keep a brilliant smile for a year or longer. We recommend touching up the results once or twice a year, depending on your individual needs. Unlike the initial treatment which can take two weeks or longer, you should be able to retouch your whitening with just a few applications.
