Are you look for a whiter, sparklier smile? If so, you are not alone. When the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry asked people what they wanted to improve about their smile, most of them chose whiter teeth. At Tracey Dental, we are proud to offer professional teeth-whitening treatments which effectively lift your dental stains, enhance the natural beauty of your teeth, and leave you with a bright and confident smile.
Why Do Teeth Get Stained and Discolored?
There are several reasons behind dull and discolored teeth. Aging is one of the main reasons teeth begin to yellow. Over time, the enamel starts to thin, allowing more of the yellowish dentin to show through. Additionally, foods and drinks with staining agents such as coffee, red wine, and berries, and the nicotine and tar found in tobacco products can leave your teeth with stubborn stains. Trauma is another reason teeth get discolored, along with some illnesses and the use of certain medications.
Tooth Whitening Options
How Does Tooth Whitening Work?
Whitening is a quick and easy process. Teeth whitening products include hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide bleaches which penetrate your teeth and break down the stains leaving your teeth looking whiter and brighter.
Does Whitening Lift All Types of Stains?
Not all types of discoloration respond to whitening the same way. Teeth that are yellow will bleach well, while brown teeth may not respond as well. Grey teeth will likely show poor whitening results. Additionally, whitening will not work to lift stains off restorations including crowns or fillings. Our dentist will help you determine if teeth whitening will work for you.
