What causes teeth to yellow?
Discoloration of teeth can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
– Drinking coffee or tea
– Eating foods that contain tannins
– Overexposure to fluoride
– Childhood use of antibiotics
– Tooth decay
– Root canal issues
The teeth also naturally yellow over time; our baby teeth are whiter than our permanent teeth, for example. This is why tooth whitening can make us look so much younger!
Why should I have my teeth whitened professionally?
It’s no secret that there are a variety of whitening options available as over-the-counter, at home treatments. While these treatments are often inexpensive and easy to use, they are not as effective as in-office treatments, and do not protect the rest of the mouth from the whitening chemicals.
In office whitening methods use stronger whitening agents, so they can whiten your teeth by up to ten shades in just one hour. They also include a buffer gel that protects your teeth from any damage, as well as techniques that keep your gums and other tissue from being harmed.
Your dentist is also the best qualified person to deal with any whitening-related problems, such as extra sensitivity.
