Teeth Whitening

What Factors Affect the Color of your Teeth?
Some people are born with teeth that are more yellow than others. Others have teeth that yellow with age. Your natural tooth color can also be affected by many factors. Surface stains and discoloration can be caused by:

  Tobacco ( whether smoked or chewed )
  Drink coffee, tea, or red wine
  Having highly pigmented foods such as cherries and blueberries
  Accumulation of tartar deposits, which result from plaque that has hardened
  Treatment with the tetracycline during the time when teeth are forming
  Yellowing of the teeth as part of the aging process
  Trauma to the teeth that may result in the death of the tooth vitality.
  Ingesting too much fluoride when teeth are forming ( from birth to age 16 ), which makes
  teeth a mottled look

               Teeth whitening, or tooth bleaching, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to remove stains and discoloration, as well as lighten pigmentation within the teeth. The level of whiteness that can be achieved will depend on the level of discoloration of the teeth and how they came to be stained. Teeth that are brown or yellow due to coffee, tea, or smoking stains will generally lighten four to five shades. Teeth that are grey due to pigmentation within the teeth will lighten two to three shades.  
Teeth whitening can be done in one of two ways: In-office bleaching or at-home tooth bleaching kits provided by a cosmetic dentist. Both of these methods are done under a cosmetic dentists supervision so that the chance of negative side effects is reduced.
