Everyone wants pearly white teeth, but many people struggle with discoloration and staining. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the yellowing of teeth.
- Foods/drinks: Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and some starchy foods such as pasta or potatoes, can create conditions that cause staining.
- Tobacco use: Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth.
- Poor dental hygiene: Forgetting to brush and floss your teeth can cause plaque and food stains to build up. Skipping professional dental cleanings can also allow stains to begin forming.
- Disease: Diseases that prevent the normal development of tooth enamel (the white exterior of your teeth) and dentin (the more porous “yellower” core under the enamel) can lead to tooth discoloration.
Teeth Whitening Treatment
Kaysville Family Dentistry can help you attain your optimal smile. We start by taking an impression of a patient's teeth. We then use this impression to create customized whitening trays in-house. They fit securely around teeth and will not leak solution into the mouth. Our approach is the ideal way for patients to whiten teeth because once they are created, they can be used at any time. Patients are then provided whitening solution at a charge to use at home. Trays can be worn for 30 minutes-2 hours every night for a week or more. Once teeth have reached the perfect shade of white, a patient can stop wearing the trays. This portable solution can be taken anywhere, making it possible for people to whiten teeth while on vacation, on business trips, or after moving to a new city.
