You might ask–which of these freebies is the better deal? That depends on your smile and preferences. Custom bleach trays fit your teeth perfectly and are not cheap, neither is the professional strength teeth whitening bleach we provide with your trays. However, if you believe that your teeth are not permanently stained but really just need a good cleaning then your exam and x-rays may be the best deal. The question comes down to which type of stains you may have on your teeth.
There are two types of discoloration that you may experience, causing your teeth to be less than bright-white. The strongest type of stains are called “intrinsic stains” and cannot be resolved with typical whitening solutions. These stains reside within the structure of the teeth, which is why even a powerful dosage of hydrogen peroxide cannot break them out. It’s extremely difficult if not impossible to change the color of a tooth’s core. Don’t worry that you may have intrinsic stains–they are not common because they are often caused by powerful medications not often prescribed. If you believe that a medication you have been taking may have caused your teeth to be stained from the inside out, you may want to consult with your dentist. He or she will be able to tell almost at first glance which type of stains you are dealing with, and your medical history will provide clues as to which if any of the medications you have been taking could have caused intrinsic stains. If your child is taking a strong medication daily, you may also want to consult your dentist to see if they may be altering the chemical makeup of their developing adult teeth by doing so.
Another common source of of intrinsic staining can be caused by ingesting too much supplemental fluoride. Bright white stains on the teeth are tell-tale signs of this occurrence, known as fluorosis. Many children who drink fluoridated water and take a fluoride supplement have white fluorosis stains.
Whether your intrinsic stains are caused by a fluoride overdose or a strong medication, the only real way to reverse the appearance of these stains is by capping your teeth with veneers. Veneers are porcelain covers for natural teeth that will improve the appearance of your teeth instantaneously, and will never need bleaching or whitening treatments to maintain their bright white appearance. Talk to your dentist today about veneers as a possible solution to the deep-seeded stains on your teeth.
Most people do not have intrinsic stains–in fact, extrinsic stains are much more common and much more easily reversed. If you have extrinsic stains, you may recognize them by mild discoloration or a yellow hue. The most likely cause of extrinsic stains is diet. Tobacco use, drinking coffee, tea, wine or other deeply pigmented food or drink are likely culprits for yellow or discolored teeth. Foods like pomegranates and dark sodas like Coke and Pepsi are also common sources of discoloration. Not only are these foods strong in color but many of them are also acidic, which means they break down your enamel when you consume them, making their staining power more effective.
Genetics and age can also play a role in the discoloration of your teeth. In other words, some people are simply predisposed to have yellow teeth. Our enamel wears away over time, making it harder for your teeth to stay white as you grow older. Enamel protects your teeth and naturally has a whiter appearance than the dentin within the hard shell of your enamel.
