Teeth Whitening Escondido

Over time, due to the foods we eat, beverages we consume like coffee, tea, and soda, or due to aging, our teeth can become stained and darker than they once were.

If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, you may want to opt for teeth whitening.

what is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that brightens your smile by bleaching or whitening your natural teeth.

To be effective and avoid risks, a dentist should perform the whitening procedure.

There are, however, various methods for whitening teeth, including do-it-yourself home teeth whitening products.

It's important to remember that teeth whitening doesn't last forever, especially home treatments, so you will need to touch it up.

People with brown or yellow discolored teeth and fluorosis can benefit from teeth whitening.

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

The main cause of tooth discoloration is poor eating habits.

Staining might occur due to the meals and beverages you consume over time.

Tea, coffee, and red wine can discolor your teeth.

Furthermore, eating acidic meals might cause enamel degradation.

Tobacco products such as cigarettes and chewing tobacco create yellow or brown deposits on your teeth, resulting in discoloration.

Also, as you get older, stain buildup and wear and tear can cause your teeth to change color.

Furthermore, certain genetic features might cause teeth to darken with time.

Individuals who clench or grind their teeth at night risk staining their teeth.

Teeth grinding can cause micro-cracking in your teeth, changing the color of the biting edges.

Furthermore, traumas and falls can cause fissures in the teeth, gathering stains.

The Process

In-office teeth whitening, professionally dispensed take-home kits, and over-the-counter treatments are the three options for teeth whitening.

The dentist uses a high-concentration peroxide gel on your teeth during in-office teeth whitening.

The dentist must use a paint-on rubber dam to protect the gums before applying the gel.

The gel will last for about 25 minutes to an hour on your teeth.

To reduce sensitivity, the dentist will rinse your teeth and administer fluoride.

Professionally dispensed take-home kits consist of a lower-concentration peroxide gel that you spread to your teeth with custom-made whitening trays.

Because the peroxide content is lower, the peroxide gel should be left on your teeth for more than an hour or overnight.

Another cost-effective and efficient tooth whitening method is over-the-counter solutions.
You can purchase a whitening kit from most grocery stores.

The bleaching gel concentration is slightly lower than that of the professionally dispensed take-home kit.

One-size-fits-all strips or trays or paint-on applicators are generally used for spreading the gel on the teeth.
