Undo Staining with Teeth Whitening
You brush your teeth every day and never forget to floss but you teeth are still looking more yellow than they used to be. But why is that? Even if you are very good with your oral hygiene there are many outside factors that can lead to your teeth not being as white as they used to be. Here are a few culprits of the dreaded yellow teeth:
- Food and Drink. What you eat and drink can be a very common culprit to discolored teeth. Drinks like coffee, tea and red wine have color pigments called chromogens that attach to the enamel on the outside of your tooth which is why your teeth are stained.
- Tobacco Use. Tobacco use is another frequent cause of discolored teeth. The tar and nicotine in tobacco products like cigarettes are what stain your teeth. The tar is naturally dark and nicotine is normally colorless until it is mixed with oxygen which turns into a more yellow color.
- Age. Over time the outer shell of your teeth called enamel gets thinner with brushing which reveals the yellow inner layer called dentin.
A Simple Solution to Whiter Teeth
The process of teeth whitening is a simple and painless process. The Dentist applies whitening products containing one of the two tooth bleaches which are hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide to the exterior of your teeth. These bleaches when applied to the teeth break down the stains on the outer layer of your teeth into smaller pieces. This makes the stains less concentrated and your teeth much brighter. This is not a replacement to good dental hygiene so don’t forget to brush and floss daily if you choose to whiten your teeth.
