Why Choose Nelson Y. Howard, D.D.S. for Teeth Whitening?

Why Do Teeth Get Stained?

Teeth get stained for a lot of different reasons. The enamel layer of your teeth is very porous and can absorb pigments from food, drink, and tobacco. As you age, your enamel starts to wear away, revealing the yellow-colored dentin layer beneath. Cavities, infections, and injuries can also discolor your teeth. Medications can also change the color of your teeth by affecting the internal color of your teeth by the many adverse effects medications have on your body's blood chemistry and ultimately these negative effects change the cells of your teeth to discolor from inside out. People who took the antibiotic tetracycline when they were children are a perfect example of how certain medications can change the color of your teeth. The good news is that teeth whitening kits, such as DayWhite, NiteWhite, or Opalescence, can remove those stains and whiten your enamel up to ten shades!

Reasons that your teeth may be yellowed or darkened include:

What Can I Do to Improve
the Color of My Teeth?

Basic techniques you can use to keep your teeth looking healthy are to brush and floss every day, get regular dental checkups, and use oral rinses with peroxide. Peroxide not only kills the bacteria that cause gum disease, it can also whiten your teeth. The best way to see improvement in the brightness of your smile is to come into our Rancho Bernardo or San Marcos dental offices for your customized take-home teeth whitening kit. We offer DayWhite, NiteWhite, or Opalescence for your teeth whitening needs.

What are DayWhite, NiteWhite, and Opalescence?

At home teeth whitening kit

DayWhite, NiteWhite, or Opalescence are teeth whitening kits that you can use in the convenience of your home. Both kits have optimal whitening advantages, and the type of kit you choose depends on when you want to whiten your teeth and how long you want to whiten them. If you want to whiten your smile during the day, then you can use DayWhite for about two hours a day. For those people who don't have time during their busy day, you may want to use NiteWhite or Opalescence, which will whiten your teeth while you sleep.
