Tooth Discoloration and Options for A Whiter Smile

Typical Causes of Tooth Discoloration

We all know pretty much what can cause our teeth to stain or change color. The list includes cigarettes, coffee, red wine, tea, certain fruits and vegetables and colas. Then there is the natural discoloring of teeth caused by aging. Ageing causes enamel to thin and the tooth’s second layer, dentin, to become visible. Dentin can range anywhere from grey to black, but is generally a pale yellow.

Finding a Solution for Discolored Teeth

There are varying solutions for discolored teeth.

Professional teeth whitening may help lighten and even whiten teeth stained by food or tobacco products. This, of course, depends on the severity of the staining. Maintaining the results of professional whitening is followed up at home with a whitening kit provided by your dental professional.

Discolored teeth due to ageing or extensive staining are different problems altogether. Generally, the best solution for tooth discoloration resulting from these problems is porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are porcelain outer layers applied permanently over your natural teeth with a color that is suitable to match surrounding teeth. If you choose to veneer a large number of your teeth, you may want to choose a color even lighter than your natural teeth.

Once porcelain veneers have been applied to your teeth, your food and drink choices should be made with caution. You should avoid the same items that would stain your natural teeth to keep the bright sparkling smile accomplished by your porcelain veneers.
