Quality Teeth Whitening Service
Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy. Still, if you might feel like your smile is lacking some sparkle or is more yellow than it used to be, you’re not alone. When the Madras Dental Surgeon asked people what they’d most like to improve about their smile, the most common response was whiter teeth. The Association of Orthodontists also found that nearly 90% of patients requested tooth whitening.
Thinking about teeth whitening? Get the facts first. Here are five of the most commonly asked questions about the process.
Why Did My Teeth Change Color?
Over time, your teeth can go from white to not-so-bright for a number of reasons: Food and Drink Coffee, tea and red wine are some major staining culprits. What do they have in common? Intense color pigments called chromogens that attach to the white, outer part of your tooth (enamel).
Two chemicals found in tobacco create stubborn stains: Tar and nicotine. Tar is naturally dark. Nicotine is colorless until it’s mixed with oxygen. Then, it turns into a yellowish, surface-staining substance.
Below the hard, white outer shell of your teeth (enamel) is a softer area called dentin. Over time, the outer enamel layer gets thinner with brushing and more of the yellowish dentin shows through.
If you’ve been hit in the mouth, your tooth may change color because it reacts to an injury by laying down more dentin, which is a darker layer under the enamel.
Tooth darkening can be a side effect of certain antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications. Young children who are exposed to antibiotics like tetracycline and doxycycline when their teeth are forming (either in the womb or as a baby) may have discoloration of their adult teeth later in life. Chemotherapy and head and neck radiation can also darken teeth.
Our whole family goes to Madras Dental Surgeon and all have had great experiences. Our young kids especially like going to see Jaffer to "tickle" their teeth and practice brushing the dragon's teeth. None of them are scared to go to the dentist and enjoy their visits!
My almost 3 year old had her first appointment and it went so great! RaghuVel did an amazing job getting my daughter to participate and actually clean her teeth! I am so happy with this dental office and how they accommodate kids and their parents!
As a college student living on my own for the first time, I was worried about finding a good dentist in town. Im really happy that I ended up at Madras Dental Surgeon. The building is newly redone and the staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone was really helpful with every question I had and even helped me out with the things I should know but didn't! Plus they have little Tv's in the rooms so you don't have to be bored while they clean your teeth.
I would like to share my positive and painless experience at the Madras Dental Surgeon. From receiving numbing medication to placement of my crown, I did not feel any pain or discomfort. Thank you to Dr. Raghu Vel for his gentle touch.
I would like to say thank you so much for all of you that work at Madras Dental Surgeon cause since I step in the clinic everyone treat me in a super good way!
