Your teeth lose their pearly white color as you age. However, there are ways your white teeth can discolor sooner. Whether it's the food or beverages you consume, the use of tobacco, or your enamel just wearing out, you can restore your teeth's color.
While you can use whitening toothpaste or over-the-counter whitening strips and gels, only a dentist can prescribe doctor strength whitening.
What's the difference? In-office whitening is stronger and more effective. As a result, this reduces the time your teeth are exposed to chemicals. Additionally, the whitening process is significantly faster and more noticeable.
However, after restoring your pearly whites, your teeth can be temporarily sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. Avoid smoking and foods that lead to stains; your newly-whitened teeth are vulnerable to stains.
Teeth whitening is not recommended for children or pregnant or lactating patients. It is also not recommended for those with sensitive teeth, allergies, or gum disease.
