How Teeth Become Stained

Teeth become stained for numerous reasons including: genetic disposition, environmental factors, medication use, lifestyle choices such as smoking, and of course food and beverages. Surface stains on the enamel or beneath the enamel are commonplace and can be caused by some types of foods, soda, coffee, tea, wine, etc.

In some patients, surface stains have actually passed through the enamel and altered the color of the dentin. This can darken the teeth and create a yellowed appearance.

There are Many Options for Teeth Whitening

There are a wide variety of teeth whitening options in today’s marketplace. There are over-the-counter toothpastes, rinses, whitening strips, as well as professionally supervised options to choose from. Dr. Ekstein offers some of the very best choices, including Philips Zoom in-office and take-home teeth whitening solutions.

How are surface stains and 'below-the-enamel' stains removed?

Surface stains can be removed with abrasion or chemical reactions. Whitening toothpastes often contain silica molecules that essentially polish your enamel. Rechargeable toothbrushes can remove surface stains with via bristle action to the surface of your teeth. However, stronger measures are needed for dentin staining.

Staining below the enamel is removed by substances like hydrogen peroxide and carbide peroxide. The chemical reactions they produce can break the carbon bonds that produce yellow staining.

Are professional teeth whitening procedures safe?

While professional teeth whitening solutions are generally considered to be very safe, it is important to note that some whitening products can irritate your gums or cause temporary sensitivity issues.

Professionally managed teeth whitening is perhaps the safest because your dental care provider understands your oral and overall health. For example, if your dentist understands that you may already have sensitivity issues, that provider can help you select a gentle formulation that produces the desired results but takes the potential for sensitivity into account.
