What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is one of the most common dental procedures in Eagan, and is able to restore the tooth’s natural color. Teeth are often discolored because of the things we eat, medications we use, and other external factors such as aging and enamel deterioration.

What causes teeth discoloration?

Generally, teeth become increasingly darker with age because of changes in the structure of the enamel that cause it to become less porous and contain less phosphate as well. The primary causes for teeth discoloration include:

  • Enamel hypoplasia
  • Fluorosis
  • The use of tetracyclines and products containing chlorhexidine
  • Drinking coffee, tea, wine, and soda
  • Smoking
  • Aging

Several methods for teeth whitening are currently being used to restore the teeth’s natural white color.

  • Teeth whitening that is done in–office involves the application of a specific grade of whitening agent onto the surface of the tooth to aid in the breaking down of the stain buildup. This involves a much stronger bleaching agent than is available over the counter.
  • Teeth whitening done at home is typically makes use of commercially available products that can deliver some degree of whitening. Over the counter whitening products include toothpastes, chewing gums, and mouth rinse solutions.
  • Dentist dispensed home bleaching systems are comprised of plastic application trays and stronger concentrations of carbamide peroxide that produce relatively quick results.
