Reasons for Tooth Discoloration

It’s rare to come across patients with naturally brilliant white teeth, and most people will have some extent of discoloration due to ageing. Patients may experience premature wearing out of tooth enamel, especially those with naturally thinner tooth enamel. The quality and nature of tooth enamel often depend on genetic make-up.

When enamel wears down, the yellowish dentin layer shows through and takes away from the beauty of your smile. Other common reasons for teeth discoloration include:

  • Excessive consumption of artificially coloured foods like tea, coffee, red wine, soya sauce
  • Poor or irregular oral hygiene practices at home
  • Heavy smoking (nicotine and tar leave behind stubborn stains on teeth that cannot be removed with brushing alone)
  • Radiation and chemotherapy and consumption of certain medications can stain teeth

Our highly skilled dentists provide confidence-boosting, advanced in-office teeth whitening in St. Catharines, ON.

Teeth Whitening at Girardi Dental

We exercise utmost caution while whitening your teeth and place a rubber dam to protect your lips and gums from the effects of bleach. The duration and number of treatments will depend on the degree of discoloration that needs to be addressed.

One of our trained dentists will then carefully apply bleach to your teeth and activate the bleaching agent with laser light. Once the bleach is activated, it breaks down the stains on your teeth. Teeth whitening treatment near you is usually done multiple times, in durations of roughly 15 minutes. Patients with heavily stained teeth may need follow-up appointments to complete the treatment.

While most patients are good candidates for in-office teeth whitening, those with high tooth-sensitivity or multiple prosthetics (like crowns and fillings) may not be eligible for treatment. Please book a teeth whitening appointment today with one of our friendly dentists at Girardi Dental.
