Causes of Tooth Discoloration

Your teeth come into contact with everything you put into your mouth throughout the day. From food to drinks to the fluoride in your toothpaste, traces of bacteria are left behind along with anything that can cause a stain. If these substances are left to sit on your teeth and cause staining or discoloration, you’ll begin to notice a yellowish and unpleasant-looking smile.

Some of the things that can cause your teeth to become stained include:

  • Dark-colored foods and beverages: Soda, coffee, tea, red wine, berries, and other items can stain your teeth over time.
  • Smoking or tobacco use: The nicotine can yellow your teeth and wreak havoc on your body and oral health.
  • Medications: High blood pressure and some antihistamines can lead to stained teeth.
  • Disease Therapy: Chemotherapy or radiation can affect your tooth enamel and cause discoloration.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

If you’re struggling to decide between professional teeth whitening or an over-the-counter product, here are some reasons to opt for the solution that will give you the greatest and quickest results – professional teeth whitening!

  • Customization: Professional trays are created based on impressions made of your teeth, so they’re customized to your mouth and guarantee a comfortable fit and even whitening experience. Store-bought products are one-size-fits-all.
  • Less mess: If you follow the instructions of your cosmetic dentist in Louisville, you’ll have little to no mess, unlike an over-the-counter brand that often causes irritation to the gums and soft tissues when extra gel leaks.
  • Stronger materials: If you want a high-grade whitening gel that results in quicker results, opt for professional teeth whitening. Store-bought brands use a substance that requires you to purchase multiple kits in order to achieve the results you want.

What to Expect During a Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment

With our take-home teeth whitening kits, you can get a dramatically brighter smile in just two weeks. Professional teeth whitening can easily give your confidence a boost before a big job interview or give your smile some extra wattage for a special occasion. For it to work, all you need to do is wear your teeth whitening trays for as little as 60 minutes a day. With home whitening, you can control the extent of the color change, and you can simply stop wearing the trays when you achieve the color you desire. We bet you’ll notice a difference after just one treatment!

How Long Results Will Last

You can expect your whitening results to last several months, but in order to maintain your beautifully, newer, whiter smile, you must be committed to touching up your smile every now and then. When you begin to notice the shine diminishing, go ahead and begin the process of whitening your smile once again.
