But before we talk to you about our service, let us help you understand more about what is discoloring your teeth in order to help prevention in the future.
Factors Leading to Tooth Discoloration
There are many factors as to why tooth discoloration occurs. The two types of tooth discoloration are known as extrinsic and intrinsic discoloration. Extrinsic discoloration occurs in the outside part of the tooth, called the enamel; the different colors of enamel can range from white lines to yellow tints, or brown areas. Intrinsic discoloration occurs in the interior part of the tooth, known as dentin; it either darkens or displays a yellow tint.
In order to manage tooth discoloration, it is important to identify the possible causes. Uncontrolled factors that lead to tooth discoloration are caused by certain diseases affecting the enamel and dentin. Medications such as antihistamines, antidepressants, and high blood pressure drugs can also discolor teeth. With Miami Teeth Whitening, you can ensure that your teeth will look healthy, white, and clean for a beautiful new smile!
Another factor is aging, which causes the outer layer of the enamel to wear away causing the teeth to turn to the yellowish natural color of the enamel. Aging is not reversible or preventable, but your tooth discoloration is! Make an appointment for Miami Teeth Whitening!
Trauma, such as falling or any other injury that damages the nerve of the teeth, can also lead to tooth discoloration.
Miami Teeth Whitening from Dr. Andres de Cardenas
The main factor as to why extrinsic tooth stains occur is due to the usage of tobacco or consumption of coffee, tea, food additives, and other certain foods. Poorly brushed and flossed teeth can lead to discoloration of the tooth since the plaque is not being completely removed. These types of tooth staining can be removed by cutting down on stain-producing foods, with regular professional cleanings and home dental care such as adequately brushing, flossing and rinsing after each meal. In addition, we recommend professional teeth cleanings every six months or more frequently depending on your dentist’s recommendation.
