There are several reasons your teeth may have become stained or discolored. One reason is the thickness of your enamel, which is influenced by your age as well as your genetics. Thinner enamel allows more of your inner tooth color to show through, which is yellow. Your tooth enamel also has pores which can hold stains. Stains can happen for many reasons, including drinking dark liquids and using tobacco.
Before you do a cosmetic tooth whitening treatment, you will need to have any cavities treated. Whitening can be done at the dental office, or your dentist may provide you with a take-home whitening treatment, or both.
At an in-office whitening treatment, the dentist uses a gel which is applied to the surface of your teeth. You wear a special shield to protect your gums during the treatment. The gel is applied multiple times over the course of an hour and is often activated with heat or light. You may need more than one visit to achieve the results you want.
With a take-home treatment, the dentist will fit you for a custom mouthpiece that fits tightly to your teeth. You fill the mouthpiece with a gel, and you will need to wear the mouthpiece for several hours each day. You may need to wear the mouthpiece for four weeks or more to get the results you want. Make sure to carefully follow the dentist’s instructions for doing the treatment as well as caring for your teeth moving forward.
All cosmetic teeth whitening procedures are designed to be comfortable and pain-free.
