Do you want those pearly white teeth?teeth whitening

It's understandable that discolored or yellowed teeth aren't attractive, let alone presentable on camera or during interviews. Here is some more information about teeth whitening in Vero Beach, FL.

What kind of teeth need teeth whitening?

Drinking coffee and tea is great, until your teeth are discolored. Here are a few things that lead to stained teeth:

  • Eating food that stain teeth like blueberries and blackberries
  • Indulging in sweets and sodas
  • Smoking and chewing tobacco
  • Certain types of medications

Stained, dull, or discolored teeth are also a result of the darker layer of your teeth, dentin, becoming exposed. This happens as a result of enamel withering away with time and age. Your teeth's enamel starts absorbing products you consume, staining your teeth.

How are teeth whitened?

  • You can go to your Vero Beach dentist's office and get in-office teeth whitening. Your doctor places special retractors in your mouth prevent your lips, cheeks and tongue from touching the whitening gel put on your teeth.
  • Take-home kits are also available. This method takes longer than in-office teeth whitening but is conveniently used at home on your own time.
  • Tooth-whitening toothpastes may also help remove some of the stains and make your teeth a few shades brighter.

Take into consideration that whitening agents used don't work on certain stains and teeth:

  • Brownish or grayish stains
  • Pitted or badly discolored teeth
  • Porcelain dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding and tooth-colored fillings

While there are many options to improve the shade of your teeth, going to your doctor is the safest and longest lasting; teeth whitening lasts up to five years. So consider which option may be best.
