Discolored teeth are not just about the normal whitish to white-yellowish color. There might be brown spots on your teeth, or they could be severely yellow already. Having discolored teeth can be embarrassing and you also begin to lose your confidence in smiling and laughing while showing your teeth.
Tooth discoloration can be caused by numerous factors such as illnesses, certain medications, trauma, vices such as smoking and drinking, food and drinks that we take, and especially poor oral hygiene. So how do we get rid of this?
In today’s advancement in technology and dentistry, there are different ways of getting rid of discolored teeth and here are the top three of those choices.
1. Dental Prophylaxis
This is a procedure where extrinsic stains are cleaned through this treatment. It cleans the surface stains and protects both teeth and gums from other types of damages.
The first procedure is scaling. Your dentist will be using an ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque, followed by a manual scalar to remove debris. Then your dentist will use a prophy paste for polishing to thoroughly polish superficial stains.
A procedure that has been developed for a fast and efficient reduction of discoloration and staining of your teeth to provide a brighter and whiter smile.
This procedure uses light-activated bleaching gel to whiten your teeth. This usually takes approximately one to two hours and will provide instant whitening results. If you are worried about the sensitivity of your teeth after whitening, worry not! In Casipit Dental, we only use non-sensitivity teeth whitening from Europe, but if you feel sensitivity once, it will be very mild in the first 24 hours after the procedure.
If you really need an option because of your permanently stained teeth, then this procedure might be for you. Porcelain veneers is a preference to cover up stains and fix gaps in teeth. What’s great about it is that the porcelain veneers are a long-term solution to have that perfect set of white teeth.
The procedure of Porcelain Veneers do not need the use of local anesthetic. This requires a minimal amount of tooth reduction in the facial side of the teeth. The laboratory time required for the fabrication of a Porcelain Veneer is approximately one week. It’s just that quick and easy!
We all want that perfect white teeth to help us boost our confidence and to show-off that smile we have always wanted to let out. With the right dental clinic and dentists, they can help us achieve the teeth goals that we have always dreamed of!
