Why Do Teeth Become Discolored?
There are many factors that can lead to prematurely yellowed or discolored teeth, but this is something that happens naturally as we age. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits can slow this process, but it’s often necessary to start a bleaching or teeth-whitening program to make your smile pearly white again.
Common causes of tooth discoloration include:
- Dark liquids like coffee or red wine
- Medications, including some antibiotics
- Smoking or tobacco use
It’s also not uncommon for teeth to discolor unevenly – some people may only experience discoloration at the tops or bottoms of their teeth. A custom bleaching plan from a New Orleans dentist can help even out these discolorations for a healthy, natural looking smile.
Is Tooth Bleaching Safe?
Bleaching is generally a safe and very effective procedure, but it is something that should be done by a professional. Improper bleaching can cause excessive gum irritation and tooth sensitivity, although these are typically short-term side effects.
Dr. James A Campo, DDS is highly experienced in tooth whitening procedures. He can help you understand if you’re a good candidate for bleaching, and can develop a customized plan to help you smile more confidently.
