Q & A

Why are my teeth less bright than they used to be?

There are many factors that contribute to changes in the wattage of your smile. The aging process is a primary cause, and it occurs as your thin layer of white enamel slowly thins over time. This reveals more of the naturally yellow dentin that lies beneath. 

Additional causes of tooth discoloration include:

  • Choosing food and beverages that stain, like berries, coffee, or red wine
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Exposure to excessive fluoride
  • Traumatic injury
  • Certain medications
  • Certain medical treatments
  • Smoking or tobacco use

In many cases, a combination of factors lead to teeth staining. The good news is that professional whitening can help brighten and whiten your grin. 

What is professional teeth whitening and how does it work?

Professional teeth whitening uses a powerful solution made available only to dental professionals. It offers the chance to boost the shade of your smile quickly, safely, and effectively.

The team at Dental Excellence of Parkesburg relies on the Philips Zoom!® whitening system, one of the most well-known whitening treatments in the nation. Your dentist isolates your tongue and other soft tissues before painting a thin layer of whitening solution on the visible surfaces of your teeth. 

A special light activates the whitening solution, which begins blasting apart stains to reveal a whiter smile. After a short period of time, the solution is thoroughly rinsed from your teeth. You’ll be able to see your brightened smile right away.  

What if I want to whiten my teeth at home?

The team at Dental Excellence of Parkesburg also offers a professional-strength tray-based whitening option. This approach allows you to whiten at home on a schedule that meets your needs.

You simply place a thin line of the whitening gel into the custom dental trays before placing the trays over your teeth. The whitening trays are comfortable, and you only need to wear them for a short period of time. 

At-home whitening allows you to boost the brightness of your smile whenever you like, without a trip to the office. You can also whiten until you reach a shade you prefer, while in-office whitening doesn’t allow the opportunity to choose the final shade.
