Causes of Tooth Discoloration

Underneath the white upper layer of tooth enamel is a dark underlayer called dentin. As the tooth enamel erodes over time, it leaves the dentin exposed and causes teeth to appear discolored. If you have brown or dark spots on your teeth, they may be caused by an injury or certain medications. Dental veneers or tooth bonding may be the best option for these spots as they may be resistant to tooth whitening.

Bright white spots on the tooth enamel are often a result of over-exposure to fluoride. If you have undergone treatment with metal braces, your brackets may have left spots on the middle of each of your teeth. Poor oral hygiene, plaque buildup, illness, or trauma can also cause white spots on teeth.

Tooth Whitening Treatment

At Corbin Dental, we provide take-home and in-office teeth whitening treatment with Zoom! for your convenience. Take-home teeth whitening will require one visit to our office for dental impressions. Using these impressions, we can create custom bleaching trays. The bleaching trays will fit over your teeth like a mouthguard to distribute teeth whitening gel evenly to each tooth. We also provide quick and efficient Zoom! in-office teeth whitening treatment. Before treatment, we protect the gums with a special mouthpiece and use a whitening gel that is specially formulated with tooth sensitivity in mind. Zoom! teeth whitening can whiten your tooth enamel by multiple shades in just one visit to our office.
