Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening in Tacoma Wa

   Need your teeth whitened? Has the color of your teeth changed over time? You brush & floss twice a day to keep your teeth healthy; yet, your teeth may still not be as white. If that’s the case, consider Adams Family Dental for your teeth whitening needs. Teeth whitening contains one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.

 

Here are some common ways your teeth change color:

Over time, your teeth can go from white to not ­so­ bright for a number of reasons:

Food and Drink

Do you drink coffee, red wine, or tea? These have color pigments called chromogens. These attach to the white outer part of your tooth.

Tobacco Use

Use tobacco products? They have chemicals that create stubborn stains. Tar & Nicotine.

Age

As we get older, the outer layer of your teeth (enamel) gets thinner with brushing teeth. Then the yellowish dentin shows through more.
Trauma

If you’ve been hit in the mouth, your tooth may change color because it reacts to an injury by laying down more dentin, which is a darker layer under the enamel.

Medications

Tooth darkening can be a side effect of certain antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications. Young children who are exposed to antibiotics like tetracycline and doxycycline when their teeth are forming (either in the womb or as a baby) may have discoloration of their adult teeth later in life. Chemotherapy and head and neck radiation can also darken teeth.
