If so, it’s important to understand that several factors can cause teeth to take on a duller color over time. Frequently consuming dark-colored foods and drinks can cause your teeth to become less bright as can smoking, certain medications, trauma to the mouth, and normal aging. As people get older, the outer layer of enamel on their teeth naturally becomes thinner and exposes dentin that is more yellow than white in appearance.
If you decide to visit a cosmetic dentist for professional teeth whitening, you shouldn’t feel like the dentist provides all patients with the same treatment. Each person undergoes a unique process with tooth discoloration and has different goals for treatment with cosmetic dentistry. For example, some patients have better results with in-office teeth whitening due to hard-set stains on their teeth that require extra attention from a dentist. Others do better with a teeth whitening kit prepared by their dentist in the office that they use at home.
Be sure to discuss all options when you come in for a teeth whitening consultation with Oronoco Dental. We want you to feel comfortable knowing that you have made the best choice to meet your cosmetic dentistry goals.
One of the reasons that people visit a cosmetic dentist for professional teeth whitening in the first place is that they feel dissatisfied with the results they have obtained with teeth bleaching kits purchased from a drugstore. They may have also attempted to create a homemade version with little to no success. The reason for this is that the percentage of bleaching gel and its quality is much lower than what you would receive from a cosmetic dentist.
