Teeth Whitening

Superior Whitening for a Confident Beautiful Smile!

Yellow, stained, and discolored teeth are a natural consequence of age or lifestyle choices, but they can make you feel very self-conscious. A simple way to improve your smile is to whiten your teeth to get a younger, healthier, and more beautiful smile.

According to a survey performed by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the number one concern people have about their smiles is discoloration. While you may have many options for whitening your teeth, your dental professional at Aria Dental is the best way to access to the most powerful, professional-strength whitening in a safe way with an outstanding result.

The Ideal Age to start Teeth Whitening

It’s a question we often hear from our patients. People like to know how young is too young to start using whitening products to whiten their teeth. According to KÖR Whitening Brochures in 2007, there is no age-related contraindication to teeth whitening and the most ideal age to whiten teeth is considered to be 14 when the permanent teeth have erupted into the mouth.

Two Types of Tooth Stains

Tooth discoloration can be divided into two categories: extrinsic staining and intrinsic staining.

Extrinsic staining is the most familiar types of dental discoloration and staining, which occurs on the outer layer of enamel. Extrinsic staining typically results from oral contact with dark-colored substances you eat, drink, or inhale. Common culprits of extrinsic stains include:

  • Smoking
  • Coffee
  • Black tea
  • Colas and other dark sodas
  • Red wine
  • Pigment-heavy fruits and vegetables
  • Dark beer
  • Chocolate

Intrinsic staining comes from discoloration deeper within the tooth’s structure and typically give your teeth a yellow or gray hue. Common culprits of intrinsic stains include:

  • Tooth decay, weakened enamel, and tiny dental fractures, which allow intrinsic staining causes to penetrate deeper within your tooth
  • Dead pulp or tooth nerve
  • Bleeding within your tooth or a pulp infection
  • Dental trauma and injuries
  • Enamel imperfections
  • Tetracycline antibiotics
  • Hereditary conditions which causes a small percentage of people to have purple, gray or orange stains.
  • Enamel that is naturally less white than you desire
  • Overuse of fluoride

According to Dr. Horiyat, professional teeth whitening is highly effective on extrinsic teeth cleaning, and results may last from months to up to three years if you practice good oral hygiene, avoid dark-colored food and drinks, stop smoking, and visit Aria Dental for dental cleaning and check-ups at least every 6-months.

How We Whiten All Types of Tooth Stains

Our professional and custom-made whitening treatments and take-home OpalescenceTM or Zoom whitening kits can help whiten both extrinsic and intrinsic stains. The bleaching agents used in both types of teeth whitening procedures permeate your enamel and dissolve the particles that cause discoloration. Extrinsic stains typically respond better to teeth whitening than intrinsic stains.
