Do not let discolored teeth keep you from sharing your smile.
Patients with discolored teeth often feel embarrassed and hide their smile. Stained, dark, or yellow teeth can prematurely age the appearance of your smile and can take a toll on your self-confidence.
Bella Smiles offers effective and affordable solutions for whitening and brightening discolored teeth. Most tooth discoloration can be resolved with a professional tooth whitening treatment. For more advanced discoloration, or spots caused by trauma or medication, a more advanced cosmetic treatment may be necessary to achieve ideal results.
Causes of Tooth Discoloration
The yellowing or gradual discoloration of the teeth is normal as patients age. Over the years, enamel thins and wears away leaving the layer of the tooth called dentin exposed.
Dentin is naturally yellow in color and causes a yellow tint of discoloration to the teeth. Food and beverages high in acidity or dark in color also exasperate discoloration and can stain the surface of the teeth.
Some patients may develop dark black or brown spots or splotches on the teeth. This type of discoloration can be a result of an injury to the tooth. Dark spots can also be left behind after the use of certain antibiotics.
This type of tooth stain is often resistant to whitening gels. Patients may achieve permanent whitening results with dental veneers or tooth bonding. These cosmetic treatments cover the discoloration and are resistant to staining.
