What Causes Teeth Discoloration?
Let’s face it – getting your pearly whites to shine bright can be a major struggle. Ultimately, there are many factors that may lead to tooth discoloration, including:
- Food and Beverages: Coffee, tea and various food and beverages contain chromogens, color pigments that attach to the white, outer part of the tooth (enamel) and cause it to fade over time.
- Tobacco Consumption: Smoking and chewing tobacco contain tar, a naturally dark substance, and nicotine, a colorless substance that turns yellow when it is mixed with oxygen. Thus, tobacco can stain the teeth.
- Age: Tooth enamel gets thinner as a person grows older. This often causes dentin, a soft, darker layer below the enamel, to become more visible.
- Trauma: If you have suffered mouth trauma, a tooth may change color by laying down more dentin.
- Medications: Tooth darkening is a common side effect associated with many antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications.
- Dental Restorations: Fillings, veneers or crowns can stain at a different rate than the natural teeth and cause teeth discoloration that is particularly noticeable and unattractive.
The Super Dentists team consists of dental professionals who are happy to educate you about the ins and outs of teeth whitening treatments. We offer expert insights into a variety of teeth whitening options so you can make an informed treatment decision.
We will also teach you about your teeth whitening options. By doing so, we take the guesswork out of whitening teeth and ensure you can achieve your desired results.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
In many instances, a teeth whitening procedure can help an individual brighten the natural tooth color by four to seven shades. Most teeth whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide that releases oxygen to whiten the teeth. Hydrogen peroxide acts as a bleaching agent that removes both surface and deep stains on the teeth. It has been studied extensively and has been shown to have no negative effects on tooth enamel. There are also other systems including the ones that use laser or ultrasound to ‘zap’ the stains away.
What Types of Teeth Whitening Treatments Are Available?
Many teeth whitening treatments are available at home and in a dental office. Some of the more common options include:
- Chewing Gum: Whitening sugarless chewing gum offers a quick, easy way to remove food residue after meals and stimulates saliva to moisturize the mouth. This is a mild method of teeth whitening.
- Whitening Toothpastes or Rinses: Toothpastes contain gentle polishing agents to help remove stains from the outer surfaces of the teeth while brushing. Moreover, mouth rinses include hydrogen peroxide, which acts as a bleaching agent that whitens teeth and freshens breath.
- Whitening Strips: Whitening strips can be placed on the teeth and may help whiten the teeth over the course of a few weeks. They are generally stronger than toothpaste products because the whitening agent stays in contact with your teeth for a longer period of time.
- Tray-Based Teeth Whiteners: Over-the-counter teeth whiteners require an individual to place a mouthguard-like tray in the mouth. The tray contains a gel-based whitening solution with peroxide-based bleaching agents to help whiten the teeth. However, tray-based teeth whiteners frequently contain a lower concentration of peroxide than what is provided during a traditional in-office teeth whitening treatment.
- In-Office Teeth Whitening: An in-office teeth whitening treatment ensures a patient can receive outstanding support from a highly trained and experienced teeth whitening dentist. The treatment allows an individual to enjoy immediate teeth whitening results.
At The Super Dentists, we want patients to get the best teeth whitening results possible and will meet with you to explain the differences between in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. That way, you can find out why an in-office teeth whitening treatment may prove to be the best choice to help you brighten your teeth.

2. Philips Zoom!
Imagine what it would be like if you could transform dark, faded teeth into a bright, attractive smile in less than an hour. Now, you can make this dream a reality thanks to the Philips Zoom! teeth whitening treatment.
In just one 45-minute treatment, Zoom! can help a patient brighten the teeth by an average of eight shades. Zoom! involves the use of a top-notch tooth bleaching system that minimizes enamel discoloration. It has been clinically proven to be a safe, dependable teeth whitening treatment.
During a Zoom! treatment, The Super Dentists will cover the lips and gums and apply a special gel designed for whitening teeth. Then, a teeth whitening dentist will use Zoom! light to gently penetrate the teeth and eliminate stains and discoloration.
Zoom! gel usually is applied over the course of three 15-minute segments. At the end of the treatment, a patient can reap the benefits of dramatically whiter teeth.
Although Zoom! provides an excellent treatment for whitening teeth, it is important to note that not everyone is an ideal Zoom! candidate. The Super Dentists will examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are a viable Zoom! candidate.
LaserSmile is an innovative laser teeth whitening treatment from The Super Dentists. It involves the use of an in-office laser teeth whitening system and a proprietary photon-activated gel that has been proven to be safe and dependable for more than a century.
In a LaserSmile treatment, The Super Dentists will apply the LaserSmile gel directly to the teeth. A laser will be pointed at each tooth for a few minutes to activate the bleaching gel, ensuring a patient can get the optimal results.
LaserSmile is a popular teeth whitening treatment for individuals who want fast, proven results and only requires about 30 to 40 minutes to complete. Furthermore, a LaserSmile treatment involves minimal heat and sensitivity, making it a great alternative to many other teeth whitening options.
ezlase offers an advanced laser teeth whitening treatment. It leverages a diode laser system that is commonly used for gum surgery, temporary pain relief and myriad dental procedures. In addition, a single ezlase treatment typically requires about 20 minutes to complete and enables a patient to brighten the teeth by six to 12 shades.
With ezlase, a hydrogen peroxide-based gel will be applied to the teeth. The gel then will be activated by a laser to whiten the teeth.
ezlase is a superb choice for those who demand instant teeth whitening treatment results. It has been shown to whiten the teeth more quickly – and with less sensitivity and discomfort – than other teeth bleaching methods.
