What Happened to Your White Teeth?
Look at a baby’s smile or that of a young child and you’ll see how white your teeth once were. Unfortunately, teeth are not exempt from the body’s aging process. By the time most people hit their 20s, teeth have likely started to become stained and discolored.
The leading cause of an off-white smile is the foods and beverages you enjoy most often. Coffee, tea, Coca-Cola, red sauce, red wine, blueberries and chocolates—all of these can leave deposits in the micro-cracks and ridges of enamel—the protective outer layer that surrounds the crowns of your teeth.
If you smoke or chew tobacco (and we hope you don’t), then nicotine in these products can really stain your teeth. Over time, this accumulated staining changes the natural white color of teeth.
In addition, discoloration can happen below the enamel surface in the dentin layer. This can result from an injury that causes bleeding within a tooth or from the use of certain antibiotics when teeth are developing.
Teeth Whitening with Opalescence
Dr. Iverson prefers the Opalescence take-home treatment for steady and effective teeth whitening in Montgomery. We’ll give you custom-fitted mouth trays to fill with the Opalescence home formula. The solution contains a bleaching product as well as potassium nitrate and fluoride to reduce tooth sensitivity and maintain your teeth’s healthy enamel layer. The safe combination of active ingredients gently lifts stains from the enamel surface and reaches below to whiten the dentin layer, too.
Wear the trays for 30 minutes to an hour every day for two weeks. The results happen gradually, but the final result is dramatic and long lasting.
