Did you know that yellow and stained teeth are part of the natural aging process? As you get older, the outer layer of your teeth (enamel) weakens, chipping and flaking away. Over time, this reveals the inner portion of your teeth (dentin) which is naturally yellow in color. The more dentin that shows through, the more yellow your teeth appear.
Other factors also contribute to yellow and stained teeth, including:
You might also develop yellow or discolored teeth if you take prescription medications that contain tetracycline.
Teeth whitening is a cutting-edge type of cosmetic dentistry that uses FDA-approved chemical solutions to brighten and whiten your teeth. The majority of modern teeth whitening treatments use carbamide peroxide, a harmless chemical in the same family as hydrogen peroxide, to cut through stains and discoloration.
At SEDA Dental, the team offers several different types of teeth whitening treatment, including:
Opalescence Go™ teeth whitening is a take-home whitening solution that features a series of custom oral trays. You fill each whitening tray with a chemical bleaching solution and wear your trays for 3-4 hours each day. Opalescence Go doesn’t provide instant results, but over a series of weeks, it can whiten and brighten your smile.
Philips Zoom! Teeth whitening is a type of chairside whitening treatment that can make your teeth up to 8 shades whiter*. During a Philips Zoom! appointment, your dentist places a rubber dam over your gums and tongue and carefully paints a bleaching solution on the surface of your teeth. After the solution dries for 10-15 minutes, your dentist points a special light at your teeth that triggers a chemical bleaching reaction. Your dentist repeats this process 3-4 times.
Unfortunately, the results of teeth whitening aren’t permanent, but they usually last for 4-6 months. If you want to extend your results, the team at SEDA Dental recommends brushing and flossing regularly, quitting smoking, and avoiding dark beverages such as coffee, red wine, and soda.
