Why are your teeth discolored?
Food and drink can cause tooth discoloration. Soda, juices, coffee, tea, and red wine are all high in acid and can damage tooth enamel. This is why if you cannot brush after each meal or beverage, sipping cold water helps cleanse the acids from your teeth.
Tobacco is a culprit as well. It is not uncommon for cigarette and pipe smokers to have yellowed teeth. Likewise, chewing tobacco is problematic not only for your teeth, but for your gums as well. While giving up tobacco can be difficult, consider whiter, brighter teeth as a way to reward yourself for your efforts.
Did you know that certain medications can also add to the problem of tooth discoloration? Side effects of some prescription drugs as well as common, over-the-counter antihistamines can add to gray or yellow teeth. While it is important to take medications as directed by a physician, teeth whitening kits can help lessen the effects of tooth discoloration.
Even excess fluoride can cause tooth discoloration. A condition known as Fluorosis can occur when someone, particularly as a child, is exposed to high concentrations of fluoride in municipal water.
Finally, as we age, the enamel in our teeth can break down and the result is a tendency for the color to change.
Just how easy is it to whiten?
A whitening kit generally consists of a mouth tray and a whitening gel. The gel usually contains a form of hydrogen peroxide, a bleaching agent, which reacts to the stains on your teeth, altering their chemical structure and eliminating the discoloration.
Following the instructions, fill the mouth tray with the whitening gel and place the trays in your mouth for the designated amount of time. You can whiten your teeth while watching television, cleaning your house, or relaxing with a book. When you are finished, simply remove the trays, rinse, and you’re on your way to a more dynamic smile!
Tooth sensitivity and hygiene
Some people notice sensitivity when whitening their teeth. Special toothpastes for sensitive teeth can help alleviate this side effect. Using a special toothpaste during the time you are performing the whitening is a good idea. Tooth touchiness should go away shortly after the whitening takes place. Consult your dentist if tooth sensitivity remains an issue after whitening.
Tooth whitening does not, of course, replace daily dental hygiene consisting of brushing, flossing, and using antiseptic rinses.
