Even good oral hygiene won’t prevent tooth discoloration forever.  While daily brushing and flossing help keep your family’s teeth clean and healthy, it’s normal for you to want to improve the appearance of your smile.  If you or your family are looking to bring a sparkle to your smile, cosmetic tooth whitening may be the answer!

Teeth Do Change Color Over Time

Our teeth do change color over time.  They become more dull and take on a yellow tint.

If your teeth have become more discolored than you would like, here may be some reasons:

  • Food and Drink: Coffee, tea, and cola are all drinks with strong color pigments that easily attach to enamel, the outer part of the tooth.  Heavy consumption of junk foods during the teenage years can also contribute to poor dental hygiene and tooth discoloration.
  • Age: Over time, tooth enamel gets thinner, allowing the more yellow dentin to show through.

Simply Understanding of Tooth Whitening

Whitening agents use hydrogen peroxide in one form or another to brighten your smile. Hydrogen peroxide acts as a strong bleaching agent that breaks up deep stains into smaller pieces, making the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.  It’s that simple!

Are There Whitening Options For Everyone?

Yes of course!  Here are just four options available.

1.  In our Grove Smiles Dentistry office in Coconut Grove, FL,  we prefer to use the Zoom!® Professional Whitening System to whiten our patient’s teeth. This scientifically advanced procedure is safe, effective—and fast. It makes teeth dramatically whiter in less than an hour. This is the best option for busy individuals who want quick results.

2.  At- home bleaching is another option! We also offer custom-made, take-home trays for a reliable, cost-effective whitening option.  They are specially designed to hold the whitening gel evenly against the teeth, providing a comfortable fit than can be worn for extended periods of time.  Patients typically see a 5- to 8-shade difference in 10 to 14 days if they whiten for 30 minutes to an hour a day.

3.  Over-the-counter whitening kits are also widely available for home use.  These provide trays to hold whitening gel or whitening strips that stick to teeth.  Over-the-counter products contain a weaker whitening agent than the products you can get from your dentist and as a result, require a longer treatment period.  Feel free to reach out to us with any questions when using at-home products and always follow package directions.

4.  Whitening toothpaste is another simple option for those who want a whiter smile! Whitening toothpastes contain abrasives that remove stains on the enamel, helping teeth stay clean and bright.
