To best understand the benefits of teeth whitening, it is imperative to understand the causes of teeth discoloration. For many patients, brushing and flossing do not help teeth remain bright over time. Other factors can cause teeth to change color including food and drink. Coffee, tea, and red wine are typical causes of teeth discoloration. The intense pigments attach to the enamel causing teeth to darken over time.
Tar and nicotine found in tobacco products cause teeth to become stained over long-term use.
Over time, the outer layer (enamel) of teeth gets thinner, and the yellowish inner layer (dentin) becomes more prominent creating a discoloration to the teeth. These are just a few factors that cause teeth to be dull or darken making teeth whitening necessary for many patients in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.
The teeth whitening process itself is quite simple
Teeth whitening products contain one or two tooth bleaches that breakdown the tooth stain making it let prominent and brightening the patient’s teeth. There are several tooth whitening options available to help patients attain their best smile. Before whitening, it is best for patients to consult with our dentist about which whitening option is best for them.
