Visiting a Chandler, AZ Teeth Whitening Expert

Can All Teeth be Whitened?

It is essential to consult your dentist in advance, as some whiteners may not have the ability to correct all types of discoloration.  One example is that yellow teeth may bleach easily, but brown teeth may not react at all. 

Grey shades on teeth may not whiten at all.  Bleaching is also unsuitable for caps, veneers, crowns, and fillings.  If the staining of teeth is caused by drugs or damage to teeth, whitening may also not be effective. It is crucial to speak to your teeth whitening dental specialist because you could do your teeth harm by trying to whiten something that will never become white.

Read on to find out more about teeth whitening and how your local dentist is the best person to help.

 

How Do I Start having White Teeth in Chandler, AZ?

Tooth brushing and flossing is an excellent way to keep your teeth clean, white, and very healthy. 

The thing is you may feel your smile still doesn't have that glow or is more yellow than it used to be.  You are not alone in this feeling. 

When polls ask people what they want to improve on their smile, whiter teeth are the most common answer!  

 

What Causes Teeth to Change Color?

Over time, our teeth can turn away from white and go dull for several reasons.:

Food and Drink:  Coffee, teas, and red wine are the most staining perpetrators.  What is the common cause?  Intense color pigmentation called chromogens that stick to white tooth enamel.

Tobacco Use:  There are two chemicals in tobacco that produce stains, tar, and nicotine.  Tar is inherently dark.  Nicotine doesn't contain any dye until combined with oxygen.  Once mixed, it turns into a yellowish substance and can stain surfaces. 

Age:  The first layer of the teeth is called the enamel.  Underneath this hard and white shell is the softer area called dentin.  Over time, this outer layer gets thinner with brushing.  This causes the yellowish dentin to start showing through. 

Medications:  Side effects of some antihistamines, antipsychotics, and hypertension drugs can cause the darkening of teeth.

When young children are exposed to antibiotics such as tetracycline and doxycycline, whilst their teeth are forming, they may experience discoloration of adult teeth later in life.  Chemotherapy and head and neck radiation can also cause the darkening of teeth.
