Are you unhappy with your yellowed, stained, or discolored teeth? Do you want cost-effective teeth whitening with brilliant results? At Westborough Dental Associates, we make it our mission to provide our patients with effective tailor-made treatment options. We have professional teeth whitening treatment that you can take home for your convenience.
But how do teeth become discolored in the first place, and how does professional teeth whitening work?
How Do Teeth Become Discolored?
Smoking and Tobacco Products
Tar and nicotine found in smoking and tobacco products stains teeth. Tar can darken enamel, and nicotine yellows teeth. Years of smoking or tobacco use can cause increased discoloration or create tough stains.
Food and Drink
Coffee, tea, sodas, and certain fruits contain color pigments called chromogens. These pigments can attach to enamel and cause staining.
Certain antihistamines, antipsychotics, and high blood pressure medications may darken teeth as a side effect.
Tooth enamel wears down and becomes thinner over time, showing the under layer of yellow dentin.
Hits and injuries may discolor teeth. Chips and cracks in teeth can also cause tooth discoloration.
Teeth Whitening Treatment
We offer teeth whitening kits used to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. We will first take molds of your teeth in our office to fabricate your custom teeth whitening trays. After they are created, the trays will be worn, evenly distributing whitening gel to teeth. This option gradually whitens teeth over several weeks for a brilliant whiter smile.
