Tooth discoloration can be caused by a variety of different factors, including:

  • Aging
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Using tobacco products
  • Pigmented foods & beverages
  • Sugary & acidic foods
  • Certain medications
  • Genetics

Some types of discoloration can be prevented, but others may not be in your control. There are two types of tooth discoloration: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth and are typically caused by foods, beverages, and tobacco products. Intrinsic stains are the result of medications, so you should discuss this with your doctor if it concerns you.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?

Sadly, the results of your teeth whitening treatment won’t last forever. That’s why it’s so important that you take good care of your smile! That starts with brushing and flossing consistently at home and extends to getting a checkup and cleaning twice a year. Of course, it’s equally as important to be mindful when eating or drinking dark-colored items, like blueberries and soda. Something as simple as rinsing your mouth thoroughly with clean water afterward and brushing your teeth about 20 minutes later can go a long way!

What’s the Difference Between Professional and Store-Bought Teeth Whitening?

Patients often assume they can get the results of a professional whitening treatment for a fraction of the price if they choose store-bought kits, strips, and toothpastes. That’s not the case. In order to be sold over-the-counter, these products have diluted brightening gels and one-size-fits-all applicators. Furthermore, they don’t consider your unique smile, including if you have any veneers, crowns, or fillings. In short, there is more than one reason it’s worth investing in professional teeth whitening!

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

The procedure itself does not hurt at all. However, some patients do experience some dental sensitivity afterward. The good news is that there are several ways we can help prevent that from happening, especially if you already struggle with sensitive teeth and gums. A few examples include spacing out your treatments, using a desensitizing toothpaste, and adjusting your diet in the short-term to avoid hot and cold foods and beverages.
