Why do teeth get stained or darken over time?

Part of it is the natural aging process, which wears away your enamel showing more of the yellowish dental layer beneath. Lifestyle habits such as smoking or drinking coffee can also stain your teeth. Enamel is very porous and absorbs nicotine, pigment, and tannin (often found in beverages like wine). Other reasons that you smile might turn dull and dingy:

  • Drinking dark-colored beverages
  • Eating pigmented foods
  • Taking tetracycline (antibiotic)
  • Decaying teeth
  • Leaching amalgam fillings
  • Inheriting darkened enamel
  • Ingesting excessive fluoride
  • Sustaining trauma to your teeth

Are your teeth ready for whitening?

When you arrive for your teeth whitening appointment at our Barnwell, SC dental office, our general dentists will examine your teeth and gums to determine how well you’ll benefit from Zoom! teeth whitening. While Zoom! teeth whitening is considered safe and effective for most smiles, there are a few considerations to take into account. For example, we need to know if you have any crowns, fillings, bonding, or veneers. Restorations are designed to match your current enamel color and will not whiten during the process. Depending on where your restorations are located, or how many you have, teeth whitening may not be entirely beneficial. We also need to determine if you have any dental decay or infections, if your teeth are in good general health, if you have exposed tooth roots, and if you have any signs of gum disease.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Zoom! teeth whitening has been used by more than 10 million patients looking to brighten their smiles. Clinical studies have shown teeth whitening is a safe and effective process. Still & Reece Dentistry uses the appropriate materials to protect your gums during our in-office procedures. Although some patients may experience teeth sensitivity, the feeling doesn’t last long. If you have concerns about the teeth whitening process, please contact our Barnwell office.

How long will my teeth stay white?

Whitening treatments are designed to last for a very long time, but it’s possible for your teeth to get stained again, especially if you smoke or drink a lot of coffee. No worries! We give you touch-up kits for maintaining you whiter, brighter, more beautiful smile.
