How It Works...
What You Should Know about Tooth Discoloration
Extrinsic tooth discoloration (staining in the outer layers of the teeth) is often caused by dark-colored foods and beverages. Aging, genetics, tobacco use, and certain medications can also cause extrinsic stains. Fortunately, teeth whitening can eliminate discoloration by dissolving the bonds that create stains.
Will tooth whitening treatment work for me?
Understanding Different Types of Tooth Discoloration
Dark Clouding from Trauma
If you have suffered some injury or trauma to the teeth, you may have bleeding in the internal structure darkening the dentinal nerves. If your tooth turns a dark color after being exposed to excessive force, you may require a root canal or alternative form of treatment to whiten the affected tooth.
Overexposure to Floride
While fluoride in moderation is good for oral health, too much can result in fluorosis, which can discolor the teeth. This is mainly a concern for children who have developing permanent teeth, that can grow in yellow or with surface irregularities. Whitening can occasionally be helpful, but other times crowns and veneers are the most effective way to achieve whiter teeth.
Age-Related Intrinsic Stains
Age-related stains on the teeth are often intrinsic. The surface enamel erodes over time, exposing the underlying yellow dentin, and dentin grows reducing the size of your pulp chamber. These age-related changes can cause a tooth look darkened or gray. We may recommend an alternative cosmetic or restorative procedure to teeth whitening to get your smile back to a bright shade of white.
"I am totally pleased with his work, the cosmetic effects, and his gentle painless numbing process... Why not use the best?"
I am myself a dentist and finding Dr. Han for my own treatment was a blessing. He and his staff were nothing short of amazing. Dr. Han is very detail oriented and was extremely patient with me and my expectations. He went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied with my treatment results. He is a periodontist and prosthodontist which is the best of two worlds when it comes to analyzing and treating the entire range of implant therapy from individual tooth replacement to complex full mouth reconstruction. Look no further Dr. Han is the best.View On Google
I have been a patient of Dr. Han for almost four years. At my age, I have needed many procedures, some simple, some very complex. I am totally pleased with his work, the cosmetic effects, and his gentle painless numbing process. Dr. Han is a painstaking, thorough, highly trained dentist. He is very scientific in his approach, but also spends the time to explain all procedures and conditions to me. His staff is also very welcoming, but very professional, promptly preparing and submitting all of my insurance papers for me.
Why not use the best?
