The color and brightness of your teeth can make all the difference in how your smile comes across. Stained or discolored teeth can impact areas of your life if you often attempt to hide your smile, but our teeth-whitening products at Paris Family Dental can help you achieve a smile that you are eager to show. Teeth whitening solutions have become one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, and may be the answer to getting the smile you’ve always wanted.
Paris Family Dental offers many teeth whitening options and we want you to know the details behind tooth discoloration and the available treatments.
Causes of Tooth Discoloration
As you get older, you may notice that your teeth aren’t the same shade of white as they used to be when you were younger. Noticeable discoloration can begin as early as your late twenties.
A number of factors can accelerate this discoloration:
- Tobacco Use, Coffee, Tea, Red Wine, Etc.
- Certain medications
- Minerals in drinking water
- Onset of gum and tooth disease
Different Shades of Whiteness
Dr. Del Toro can assess your teeth and whiten them to your chosen shade contingent on the state of your oral health. However, there may be a limit to how white your teeth can become. Genetics could be a part of your tooth discoloration. Furthermore, the whiteness of your teeth is partly relevant to what caused the discoloration in the first place.
Whitening Teeth Yourself
There are many teeth whitening products available to be used at home, including generic tooth trays to fit over your teeth. Results will vary based on the efficacy of the teeth-whitening product you use. The common gel that comes with these teeth whitening kits is typically not as strong as that used by dentists and is therefore less effective.
Our teeth become whiter when they are in direct contact with the teeth-whitening agent. Consequently, whitening toothpaste doesn’t maintain contact with the teeth long enough to make any considerable improvements.
A custom-made tray is very beneficial if you want to perform the whitening at home option. This ensures that each tooth comes into direct contact with the whitening agent and is more effective at whitening with more even results. At Paris Family Dental, we can provide you with at-home trays. A visit with Dr. Del Toro would be very beneficial to provide you with a custom tray created for your teeth specifically.
