How Yellow Teeth Can be Fixed

How Yellow Teeth Can be Fixed

There are numerous solutions out there now to address the inevitable discoloration of teeth that happen to us all as we age and consume staining foods and drinks. Here is a look at the wide variety of solutions available, beginning with the most basic through the most aggressive. It should be noted, however, that these solutions are not in order of the time commitment needed to undergo treatments.

Whitening Toothpaste
This option is the easiest way to whiten teeth, but it will take a lot of time. Always use toothpastes with an ADA stamp of approval to ensure it will effectively prevent cavities, too.

Over-the-counter Treatments
These come in a variety of forms and can work well for many patients. Care should be taken to ensure that the instructions are followed perfectly, though, because these treatments definitely have the potential to cause problems, especially tooth sensitivity.

A safer and more aggressive whitening treatment are ones that the patient buys from a dentist, like Kor. These treatments use a custom-made dental tray that fits precisely over your teeth, helping keep the whitening gel from getting onto and injuring your oral soft tissue like the gums. But you apply the treatment in the comfort of your own home.

Dentist-Administered or Chairside
The most aggressive whitening solutions must be administered at the dental office by a trained professional. These are the most powerful, the safest, and also the fastest treatments. In just about an hour, these can improve whitening in one visit that could take months to achieve by any other means. And because a protective coating is applied to the gums, and the cheeks and lips kept away, this is also the safest option.
