Whiten Teeth in Dundalk, Maryland

Causes of Tooth Discoloration

There are many different ways that teeth can become discolored:

  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Patients who do not brush and floss daily or even twice a day are more likely to experience tooth discoloration. Stains can easily build up on the tooth enamel.
  • Nicotine: Smoking cigarettes, vaping, or using tobacco products quickly stains teeth. The nicotine contained in tobacco products can cause the tooth enamel to yellow over time.
  • Foods and Beverages: Some foods and beverages contain chromogens that stain the enamel. Chromogens are pigments that stick to the tooth enamel and make them appear discolored.
  • Medications: Antihistamines, antipsychotics, and other medications may have side effects that discolor the enamel. Please let us know if your medications have these side effects and we will work with you to find the right treatment to counteract these effects.
  • Dental Injuries: Chips or cracks in the enamel can expose the dentin or dark underlayer beneath the tooth enamel. Dentin makes the teeth appear dull or discolored.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening in Dundalk, MD

Zoom! is our in-office teeth whitening treatment. To begin treatment, we place a barrier over the gums to minimize sensitivity. We clean the teeth and apply the whitening gel to the enamel. The gel remains on the teeth for 15 minutes, as the active ingredients including hydrogen peroxide enter the tooth enamel. After 15 minutes, we remove the gel and repeat the whitening process two more times. The entire procedure takes 45 minutes.

Because Zoom! is a quick treatment, it’s a great option for patients attending special events. We often recommend our in-office Zoom! treatment for patients attending weddings, birthdays, and graduations. With Zoom!, patients can get a brighter smile in just one visit to our dental office.

Can I Treat Deep Tooth Stains?

Sometimes patients may have stains that cannot be removed with a professional whitening treatment. Our dental office offers dental crowns and tooth bonding treatments to cover areas of tooth discoloration. Dental bonding treatment uses a malleable material that covers tooth stains. Tooth crowns fully cover teeth and also benefit patients with extensive areas of tooth damage.
