Why Did My Teeth Change Color?
Teeth can become discolored for a variety of reasons:
Food and Drink
Certain food and beverages, such as coffee, wine, or tea, can cause the enamel (the white, outer layer of the teeth) to become discolored. Chromogens, which are intense color pigments found in these items, attach to the enamel and cause staining.
One adverse effect of certain medications, such as antihistamines, high blood pressure drugs, and antipsychotics, is tooth darkening. Certain antibiotics that are given to children may be the culprit for dull or yellow adult teeth later on. Additionally, chemotherapy may also discolor teeth.
When teeth are injured or otherwise exposed to trauma, darkening can occur if normal blood flow to the tooth is interrupted, or the nerve dies.
Tar and nicotine, which are found in tobacco, can create unflattering yellowing of the teeth. Tar is black and highly pigmented, while nicotine turns yellow in the presence of oxygen. When these substances are exposed to the teeth, they create stubborn stains and discoloration.
Over time, the enamel of the tooth gets thinner due to natural wear and tear. This makes the darker inner layer of dentin more visible, which contributes to a dull and discolored appearance of the teeth.
Teeth Whitening Process
The process for teeth whitening is simple. One of two bleaches is present in whitening products, and they work by breaking up the stains into smaller pieces, making them less concentrated. This effect makes your teeth appear brighter.
For the fastest and more effective teeth whitening, opt for In-Office Whitening. 2thbar by Dr. B offers GLO Science Professional Teeth Whitening System, which combines the patented GLO Illuminating mouthpiece with professional-strength hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. The immediate results come with little to no irritation or downtime in this short and easy process. Your 2thbar dentist may also provide you with the GLO Science Professional Take-Home Kit so that you can achieve professional results on the go.
Other options, such as over the counter whitening products and stain removal toothpastes offer modest results and may take longer to achieve professional levels of whitening.
