Aging: The outer layer of enamel on your teeth wears down as you get older. This can cause your teeth to appear yellow. Since saliva helps to wash away food and plaque from your teeth, a decrease in saliva production due to age can speed up this process. This is why it’s important to get dry mouth treated.
Smoking: The tar from smoking is especially bad for your teeth. Smoking often makes your teeth look shades of brown or yellow, not to mention a whole slew of other oral hygiene issues.
Diet: Black coffee, sauces, and soda are some of the foods that can stain your teeth. Certain foods have residues that will stick to the surface of your teeth and damage the enamel.
Grinding: Whether you grind your teeth during the day or while you sleep, it can damage the tooth enamel. This leads to yellowing, weakened teeth.
Diseases: Many diseases can affect the integrity of your enamel and dentin (the layer underneath your enamel). So can treatments like radiation and chemotherapy for cancer patients. This breakdown of the surface of your teeth can cause discoloration.
Medications: Certain antibiotics, antihistamines, antipsychotic drugs, and blood pressure medications are known to cause teeth discoloration. The chemicals chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride, found in mouthwashes, can also stain your teeth.
Many people wonder whether it’s worth the cost when you can buy a home whitening kit for much less money. While it’s true that they’re less expensive, they’re not necessarily cost-effective. Over-the-counter whitening kits solely treat surface stains. But when your teeth are discolored, there are often stains both on the surface and beneath the surface.
Those deeper stains embedded in the enamel only come off during in-office treatments. The stronger concentration of peroxide in combination with the laser used during professional whitening permeates the enamel, dentin, and goes through to the pulp (innermost layer). Penetrating those layers is what makes your teeth actually stay white.
We believe this is the best way to whiten your teeth. When you whiten your teeth in our office, we use advanced laser whitening technology, only available under a doctor’s careful supervision. This allows us to whiten your teeth even more, for less time.
The results of professional laser teeth whitening vary from person to person. For most people, their teeth will stay white for up to 2 years. For some, professional whitening keeps their teeth white for 10 years with no touch-ups!
This is the easiest, least expensive method. It’s also the least effective, and the results last for the least amount of time.
With over-the-counter strips, you can expect to pay around $30 to have your teeth appear whiter for about 4 months.
Who Should Not Get Their Teeth Whitened?
Pregnant and breastfeeding women: The chemicals used for whitening may not be safe for those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or undergoing fertility treatments.
Children under 12: To have their teeth whitened, all of the child’s permanent teeth need to be present and fully calcified. There is also a risk of developing tooth sensitivity from the chemicals in the bleaching agent, which would be especially unpleasant for children.
People with gum disease or untreated cavities: Bleaching agents used for teeth whitening can irritate your gums and teeth. Teeth whitening could cause pain and damage in this case.
People with sensitive teeth: Whitening agents could be extremely uncomfortable for those with sensitive teeth or gums.
Those with tooth-colored fillings, caps, or crowns in their front teeth: Since the treatment will only whiten your real teeth, whitening will make the color look uneven.
