Common Causes of Dental Staining & Discoloration
Dental discoloration could be the result of a number of factors, which is why understanding the root of the issue is so important. Therefore, the first step in your journey to a new and improved smile will begin by discovering which of the below is causing stains and yellowing:
- Use of tobacco products
- Consumption of dark-colored foods, like berries and coffee
- Extensive enamel wear
- Overconsumption of fluoride (fluorosis)
- Certain medications
Limitations of Store-Bought Teeth Whitening
Due to the price and sheer convenience, many patients try brightening their teeth at home first. Unfortunately, the low dosage whitening agents and flimsy applicators often lead to less than impressive results. Not only is their one-size-fits-all approach not effective, but it can lead to imperfect results on the occasions they do work. Therefore, it’s best to not waste your money and leave teeth whitening treatment to the pros!
The Process of Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment
Our cosmetic dentist in Houston is proud to offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments! If you would prefer to erase discoloration from the comfort of your own home, Dr. Palmer will provide you with a custom tray and personalized whitening agent to gradually brighten your smile. By wearing them for 30 minutes twice a day, you’ll see the beautiful results firsthand in just a couple of weeks. On the other hand, if you’d prefer to lighten your teeth up to eight shades in a single visit, then we will use a special hydrogen peroxide gel and light to achieve your smile goals. Either way, you can rest assured you’ll get the dramatic, yet natural-looking, results you deserve.
