Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

There are a lot of different factors that can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. Age, as well as the foods you eat and drink, might all be contributing factors. Beverages, such as red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Smoking and tobacco use can also be big culprits.

Furthermore, the natural aging process contributes to tooth discoloration, because as the outer enamel thins from wear, the darker dentin underneath becomes more visible.

Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they can soak deep into the enamel of your teeth and into the dentin. The custom bleaching trays at Haider Family Dentistry can successfully whiten teeth that are discolored due to aging, tobacco use, and food stains.

If you have discolored teeth caused by trauma or certain medications, whitening trays may not whiten your teeth. But, Dr. Haider offers other solutions, such as porcelain veneers.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes. Whitening your teeth is a safe process when you follow product guidelines and instructions. The team at Haider Family Dentistry offers thorough instructions for their at-home whitening treatments, so you achieve safe, effective results.

The professional whitening solution is entirely safe to place on your teeth and in your mouth. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.

What are the benefits of professional whitening trays?

Professional whitening trays offer whitening solutions that are far stronger and more effective than those you can purchase in stores. Plus, the trays are custom made just for you.

Whitening trays at Haider Family Dentistry are created from an impression of your teeth, so they fit precisely. At-home whitening trays, which you wear for 30-60 minutes at a time, offer a gradual, but effective, change in the brightness of your smile. Your dental specialist at Haider Family Dentistry will tell you how many days or weeks you will need to wear them.
