In some cases, the foods you eat and the beverages you drink can stain your teeth, especially if you consume them frequently.
For example, drinking coffee or tea day after day can leave you with unsightly stains on your teeth. You can also have discolored teeth if you take certain kinds of medication, if you have teeth that are injured, or if you have poor oral hygiene.
The natural aging process can also cause tooth discoloration as the yellowish interior part of your teeth shows up more.
There are several different teeth whitening options available when you want to make your teeth whiter again.
You’ll find a variety of over-the-counter whitening products in local stores, such as whitening strips and whitening toothpaste. However, for superior results, you can have professional teeth whitening done at Killeen Family Dentistry.
Professional teeth whitening at Killeen Family Dentistry offers some significant advantages compared to over-the-counter products. These include:
When you come in for professional teeth whitening at Killeen Family Dentistry, the dentist has you wear a whitening tray during your visit. This tray contains a robust bleaching agent that helps break up stains and discolorations on your teeth, which results in a brighter and more evenly colored appearance.
Keep in mind that you might need more than one treatment for the best results. However, these procedures are relatively short, so you shouldn’t expect to spend much time in the office.
The dental team at Killeen Family Dentistry will let you know if professional teeth whitening is suitable for you. Typically, viable candidates have yellowish or light brown stains and discolorations.
Teeth whitening doesn’t automatically work on all types of stains and discolorations. You might not experience optimal results if you have grayish or dark brown stains or if trauma or medications discolor your teeth.
If your teeth are discolored, please contact Killeen Family Dentistry to set up an appointment.
