You might not be aware of this, but the color of your tooth enamel is always changing. It’s common for your teeth to become stained or discolored over time. There are several factors that contribute to making your teeth appear dull or discolored.
For example, poor dental hygiene can also affect the appearance of your teeth. And certain drinks, such as coffee, tea, soda, and wine, can discolor your teeth, as well. The same goes for smoking and other forms of tobacco. Some medications or illnesses can discolor your teeth, and sometimes the culprit is simply the natural aging process.
But when you visit a dental clinic, they enjoy helping our patients to regain a bright and healthy-looking smile once again. They offer a safe and effective service like porcelain veneers and teeth whitening, which is a process that lessens the appearance of stains and discoloration of tooth enamel and dentin.
Usually, clinics offer two different forms of teeth-whitening: KöR Whitening and Zoom! Whitening. Both systems use specialized whitening gels that gently absorb into your tooth enamel to bleach away discoloration. The KöR system restores your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen, while Zoom! Whitening employs a specialized laser light to activate the whitening gel, which produces results in as little as an hour.
