How Do Teeth Become Stained or Discolored?

Your teeth come into contact with a variety of things every day, each leaving their own mark on your pearly whites. Some of these include:

  • Foods and Drinks: From that morning cup of coffee to your afternoon mixed berry blend of fruit, foods and drinks are one of the leading causes of stained teeth. Whether it’s coffee, tea, soda, red wine, berries, or even some vegetables, if you don’t brush your teeth immediately after you’re finished eating/drinking, or at least rinsing your mouth with water, the stains will stay.
  • Smoking or Tobacco Use: Not only is this harmful to your overall health, but it causes your smile to become dingy.
  • Certain Medications: Prescription medications for high blood pressure or even antihistamines can cause tooth discoloration.
  • Disease: Your tooth enamel can be affected if you’ve received radiation or chemotherapy treatments. As your tooth enamel weakens and becomes thinner, our teeth can begin to show discoloration.

How Does Take-Home Teeth Whitening Work?

Want whiter teeth without the sensitivity that comes with many boxed products? With take-home teeth whitening kits, you can achieve a whiter, brighter smile in the comfort of your own home.

Your first appointment with Dr. Barratt will be your consultation. He’ll discuss the process of using this type of teeth whitening kit, as well as the cost, before taking an impression of your teeth. This will be sent to the lab where your customized whitening trays will be created. During your second appointment, you’ll receive your trays and a professional-grade whitening gel. Your cosmetic dentist in Grants Pass will instruct you on how much to use, when to wear your trays, and for how long. If you follow the instructions, you’ll notice your teeth becoming 6-10 shades brighter in just a matter of weeks.

Apart from a healthier-looking smile, there’s less chance of sensitivity with a professional take-home teeth whitening solution.

How Long Will Whitening Results Last?

As long as you follow Dr. Barratt’s instructions, you can expect your results to last for months. In order to maintain these results, you will need to be committed to receiving additional treatments. Also, you’ll want to avoid or significantly limit the amount of stain-causing foods and beverages to keep your pearly whites shining bright.
