What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

No matter how hard you try, you cannot avoid your teeth darkening over the years because it is a natural part of aging. Your enamel thins from daily wear and tear. This causes more of your yellowish dentin to be visible, causing your teeth to appear darker.

Besides age, there are several other factors that may cause your smile to lose its luster, like genetics and poor oral hygiene. Among the leading cause of premature discoloration involves the foods and drinks you consume. Those that are acidic or darkly pigmented will stain your teeth.

Brighten Your Smile with Zoom! Whitening

You probably turned to over-the-counter whitening products at the first sign of discoloration. They are available in many forms and offer a convenient solution. Although they claim to provide noticeable results, we will not see a significant change. They do not contain professional-grade whitening agents, so the results you achieve are minimal.

The only way to get the noticeable results you want is with the help of your cosmetic dentist in Downers Grove. After an initial consultation to ensure you are a candidate for the treatment, you are scheduled for your transformation.

We apply a protective barrier to your lips and gums to avoid causing any irritation to your soft tissues. We then apply a highly-concentrated whitening gel to your teeth. We activate the whitening agents in the gel using a special light for 15 to 20-minute intervals. As the gel penetrates your enamel, it disrupts the discoloration molecules to get your teeth as much as 8 shades whiter after just one session. Depending on the results you want to achieve, we may recommend you have more than one session.

Maintaining a Bright Smile

Your new smile can last for several years with the right aftercare. You can protect your investment by:

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste to clean all surfaces of your teeth for at least 2 minutes twice a day.
  • If you eat or drink something dark in color, like blueberries, brush your teeth right away or rinse your mouth with water.
  • Use a high-quality dental floss to clean in between each tooth daily.
  • Do not smoke or use tobacco.
  • Limit your consumption of darkly pigmented foods and drinks.
  • Visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
