Why Choose Teeth Whitening?

Many different factors contribute to your teeth becoming discolored.  When our teeth first start to come in, they are protected by the outer layer, enamel.  As we get older, the enamel begins to wear and becomes thinner, especially at the gumline. At the core of our teeth is dentin. This is naturally a yellow color and as the enamel begins to thin, the color of the dentin begins to show through.

Small cracks can also form in the enamel. These cracks allow stains and debris from food and drink to build up and create a yellowish, dull exterior. Stains can be placed in one of two categories, extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains are those that come from the food and beverages we consume, including dark colas, coffee, teas, and tobacco. Brushing and routine dental cleanings can remove some of these stains, but some are more stubborn and may remain even after teeth cleaning. Intrinsic stains are those that form from the interior of the tooth as a result of aging, trauma, or tetracycline and other factors. These are the stains that were once considered impossible to whiten.

Today’s dental advances allow teeth to be whitened from even intrinsic stains, which gives hope to many people who may have been previously told that teeth whitening was not an option for them. At Gatling Dentistry, we offer Professional Strength Crest Whitening Strips and At-Home whitening trays that can help most people achieve amazing results! Visit our smile gallery for some of our previous clients.
