Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why are My Teeth Stained?

Your teeth may not be as white as you’d like for a number of different reasons. Some of the most common include:

  • Dietary Habits: The pigments in some of the foods and drink you consume may stain your teeth. Common teeth staining foods include tea, coffee, red wine, and berries.
  • Injury: If you’ve injured a tooth it protects itself by laying down more dentin rather than enamel, which may cause the tooth to look more yellow.
  • Age: Regular wear and tear of your teeth causes the enamel to thin, revealing the more yellow dentin underneath.
  • Smoking: Nicotine and tar in cigarettes cause teeth to turn yellow or brown.

How Do Teeth Whitening Agents Work?

Teeth whitening agents work by breaking up the stains on your teeth so they’re less visible and help bring out the natural whiteness. The in-office whitening treatment at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness uses a special bleaching agent and activator to help you get results fast.

While teeth whitening is a safe and effective treatment for improving the look of your teeth, you can’t fix all stains with teeth whitening agents. Your specialist at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness first examines your teeth to determine the cause of your stains before recommending the treatment. Generally, teeth whitening agents don’t work well on gray stains or stains caused by an injury.

How Do I Keep My Teeth White After Whitening?

Your specialist at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness provides guidelines for how you can maintain your new, white, bright smile at home. Most importantly, you need to brush and floss as advised by your dentist.

You may also want to limit your intake of foods and drinks known to stain your teeth. Or, you can drink from a straw so the staining beverages don’t come into contact with the front of your teeth.

If you smoke, you should consider quitting, not only for your health, but also because cigarettes stain teeth quickly.

With good at-home oral hygiene and regular dental visits, your teeth should remain white for many months.
