Why Teeth Become Discolored

As we age, many factors play a role in oral health. Medications can cause teeth discolouration, as can smoking and certain foods. Sometimes age plays a role and teeth may become dingy or yellow. The following are factors that cause teeth to discolour:
=
Beverages that stain like tea, coffee or red wine
=
Food with spices like turmeric can stain if eaten frequently
=
Stains can get trapped under a buildup of calcified plaque on the teeth called dental calculus
=
Medications
=
Trauma to the mouth or teeth
While there are numerous reasons for teeth to become discoloured, the type of discolouration or staining must also be determined to choose the correct whitening treatment. Some types of discolouration may not respond to certain teeth whitening solutions, and so require other treatment pathways. The two types of discolouration are intrinsic and extrinsic discolouration.

Extrinsic discolouration is the most common type of staining that takes place as residue from food, beverages or cigarettes build up on the protein film that covers tooth enamel. This dulls or changes the natural colour when practices like smoking cigarettes or tea drinking become daily habits. This type of staining is the most responsive to common teeth whitening solutions.

Intrinsic discolouration is when a tooth becomes discoloured from the inside. Certain antibiotics or other medications may discolour the internal part of the tooth called dentin, leaving certain teeth greyer or darker than the rest. Sometimes old fillings become visible through teeth as the enamel thins with age. At the same time, dentin naturally yellows with age and show through as enamels thins. These types of discolouration may require custom solutions for teeth whitening.

Why Professional Teeth Whitening

Many people opt to use over-the-counter teeth whitening gels, which often lead to problems. The main issue is they don’t work as well, but more serious is that they can damage gums. Also, certain types of discolouration will not respond well to mainstream gels, especially if the staining is on the inside of the tooth or trapped under plaque buildup on the teeth.

Professional teeth whitening treatments are the best solution to effectively achieve a brighter smile. To begin the process, a thorough dental examination and assessment can help determine why teeth are discoloured. This may be followed by professional teeth cleaning and scaling, which will allow the whitening treatment to obtain the best outcome. The following are professional teeth whitening options:

In-chair teeth whitening takes place in one office visit. This is a quick and safe solution to get the whitest and brightest smile that suits you. After your comprehensive assessment and exam, your dentist will find the best colour for you and create a gel that will achieve your desired results. The gel is applied to the teeth, then activated with blue light, while you relax. The process takes about 90 minutes and will provide long-lasting results.

Take-home professional teeth whitening solutions are created by your dentist, but you apply the gel at home, at your convenience. To achieve the best results, a customised tray will be given to you, which will hold the gel in place. Your dentist will provide instructions for the proper application and use. This treatment may be repeated and take up to two weeks to achieve your desired results.

Internal tooth whitening may be used for a single, discoloured tooth with intrinsic discolouration. When just one tooth is discoloured, your dentist can find the cause to begin treatment. Your tooth will be properly cleaned and whitened with either a bleaching gel or filling. Since each situation is unique, our dentists will use their experience and skill to outline the most appropriate treatment pathway for you.
