Teeth Whitening 101
Teeth whitening is a simple solution to enhance your smile and improve your overall sense of confidence by giving you sparkling white teeth! At Otero Family, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, we offer multiple teeth whitening options and our expert team will work with you to customize your treatment based on your preferences and budget. But first, lets address some common questions in the teeth whitening world.
Why Have My Teeth Changed Color?
Food and Drink
What do Coffee, tea and red wine have in common? They all stain our teeth! Over time, pigments found in these substances seep into the pores of our teeth and create a dull appearance.
Tar and nicotine found in tobacco create stubborn stains that leave teeth with a yellow stain and sometimes a dark line around the gum tissue.
Over time, the enamel of our teeth gets thinner and the dentin begins to show. And you guessed it, it’s yellow.
If you’ve been hit in the mouth, your teeth may change color due to trauma inside the tooth.
Tooth darkening can be a side effect of certain medications. Children that are exposed to antibiotics like Tetracycline and Doxycycline when their teeth are forming may have discoloration of their adult teeth later in life. Chemotherapy and head and neck radiation can also darken teeth.
With the help of Dr. Otero, you’ll achieve teeth whitening results that only come from professional products and an expert team.
