There are several factors that cause tooth discoloration and stains, including food and drinks, tobacco use, poor dental hygiene, some diseases, aging and a lot more. A thin coating forms on your teeth throughout the day, which attracts stains. On top of that, the enamel has pores which hold stains as well. Professional cosmetic teeth whitening is one of the best solutions to lighten teeth and get rid of these discoloration and stains.
There are some points to consider before getting into cosmetic teeth whitening. Certain individuals are not actually perfect for cosmetic teeth whitening. Thus, the dentist will be assessing your suitability first while on a consultation. If there are some issues found such as gum diseases or dental health issues, you cannot have this procedure. Cavities must be removed before your teeth take the whitening process. This is because the whitening solutions may also penetrate decay. It may also reach the inner portions of your tooth which causes sensitivity. The receding gums also cause the tooth roots to get exposed. Teeth whitening do not work whenever there is an exposed root. This is because the root does not have a layer of enamel. It does not also work on teeth restorations like veneers or crowns.
