Why aren’t my teeth white?
Your teeth can lose their luster for a number of reasons, such as:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Eating darkly colored foods like berries
- Drinking darkly pigmented beverages like red wine, coffee, and soda
- Smoking or consuming chewing tobacco
Your teeth can also become discolored from using certain medications, like antihistamines, antipsychotics, and high blood pressure medication, or from early exposure to certain antibiotics.
A variety of natural factors can change the color of your teeth as well, like your age. Over time, your enamel (the hard outer layer of your teeth) thins out and exposes more of the color of your dentin (the soft inner layer of your teeth), which naturally turns yellow as you age.
Lastly, genetics can affect the color of your teeth, since some people are genetically predisposed to have more transparent or porous enamel.
What teeth whitening options do you offer?
Quality Dental Care offers at-home teeth whitening to get your smile shining white again.
At-home whitening solutions work similarly to in-office treatments, in that you apply a whitening gel to the surfaces of your teeth that breaks up and removes stains, but they allow you to whiten from the convenience of your home and according to your own schedule.
Dr. Ennabi will take an impression of your smile that he uses to create a custom-designed bleaching tray. You fill the trays with whitening gel and then wear them on your teeth for about 30 minutes a day, every day for about two weeks. The trays are designed to fit snugly around your teeth and contour to every nook and cranny in your smile, which prevents the whitening solution from leaking out and spreading to your gums.
Can’t I just whiten my teeth with over-the-counter products?
You can, but you shouldn’t. Generic, over-the-counter whitening strips and trays have become incredibly popular due to their price and convenience, but they’re not nearly as effective as professional-grade treatments, and can actually do some damage to your oral health.
The bleaching solution used in these products isn’t as strong as what you can get at Quality Dental Care, and because the trays and strips aren’t custom-designed for your particular smile, the bleaching solution commonly leaks out, irritating your gums.
For truly exceptional teeth whitening, you need a professional. Get your luminous smile today by scheduling a teeth whitening appointment with Dr. Ennabi at Quality Dental Care. You can book your visit by calling the office or using the convenient online scheduling tool.
