AN ANNAPOLIS DENTAL PATIENT ASKED WHY TEETH DARKEN WITH AGE

March 11, 2010 in Dentistry,Teeth Whitening by McCarl Dental Group

Aging and genetics contribute to tooth discoloration.  Another major cause of darkened teeth are staining substances including coffee, tea, cola and red wine or smoking.  We also see antibiotic staining from tetracycline use during childhood, as well as discoloration from old amalgam fillings.  Professional teeth whitening at McCarl Dental Group conveniently located near Annapolis Maryland is a great way to brighten a smile.

Please click here Invisalign Orthodontics and Teeth Whitening to watch our video of McCarl dental patients who are delighted with their bright smiles from professional teeth whitening.

Whitening toothpastes contain mild abrasives that can remove staining on the outside of the teeth but do not alter the intrinsic color of teeth. Professional tray system teeth whitening or bleaching corrects most types of discoloration by removing intrinsic stains. Professional teeth whitening is a quick and safe way to whiten teeth 2-5 shades.

At McCarl Dental Group, we recommend the in-home tray teeth whitening system. First, we take impressions to make custom fitted teeth whitening trays. A precise fit of the tray is essential to the success of the whitening treatment. In the comfort of your home, you place the prescription whitening gel in the custom fitted tray. We recommend DayWhite, NightWhite and  Zoom teeth whitening gels.  During the specified time, the tooth whitening gel oxidizes allowing oxygen to enter the enamel which whitens or bleaches the teeth. The tooth is made lighter but the structure of the tooth is not changed.

Professional teeth whitening is an excellent solution for many patients however fillings, crowns, and bonding will not lighten past their original color.  Teeth with yellow and light brown stains usually lighten well, but gray colored teeth often do not bleach as well. There are many excellent options for patients who are not good candidates for enhancing their smile with teeth whitening.  For these dental patients, porcelain veneers may give the best results.  The dentists at McCarl Dental Group are included in Americas Top Dentists and are experts on all types of smile makeovers and cosmetic dental reconstruction.

If you are interested in enhancing your smile, whether through teeth bleaching, ultra thin veneers, traditional porcelain veneers, or crowns, please make an appointment for a complimentary consultation at McCarl Dental Group.  We offer professional teeth whitening and smile makeovers to our dental patients in Annapolis, Maryland and also our dental patients in Severna Park, Crofton, Crownsville and Millersville, College Park, Lanham, Seabrook, Bowie, New Carrollton, Laurel and Greenbelt.
