Treatment for Tooth Stains

Teeth whitening for yellow teeth in Burlington NC

Treatment for tooth discoloration will vary depending on the cause. Your Fuller Dentist will provide a complete oral health exam to determine the treatment option that will offer optimal results. For some patients, a combination of treatments will help create the whiter, brighter smile they want.

  • Tooth Whitening: Teeth whitening is a highly effective, cost-efficient, and safe cosmetic treatment that can make a positive impact on a patient’s smile. We offer in-office teeth whitening which can whiten your teeth in just over an hour. We also offer at-home whitening as an easy and convenient way to brighten your smile.
  • Dental Veneers: This popular cosmetic dentistry treatment is a thin, custom-made shell that covers your natural tooth to brighten it instantly. The veneer will blend with the rest of your smile and will feel comfortable as a result of skillful artistry and the use of high-quality materials.
  • Dental Bonding: Teeth bonding is minimally invasive and can usually be completed in a single visit instantly leaving your smile whiter. Bonding uses a resin material that matches the natural color of teeth. Your dentist will cure it to the teeth using hardening light. The teeth being treated will blend in very well with the rest of your natural teeth.
  • Dental Crowns: A dental crown covers the entire tooth and is permanently bonded into place instantly, leaving your teeth whiter and more durable. They are stain and decay resistant and can last for many years.

Causes of Tooth Stains

Yellow Teeth

As we age the enamel on the teeth can begin to wear down, leaving teeth looking yellow or discolored. The yellowish tint comes from the exposure of the inner layer of the tooth called dentin. Dentin is naturally yellow in color. As the enamel wears away, dentin shows through making the small look dull and aged.

Teeth whitening options are great for treating this type of tooth stain. We encourage patients to avoid smoking and highly acidic or dark-colored beverages such as coffee and red wine.

White Spots

Ultra-white spots on the teeth can be visually distracting. Overexposure to fluoride can lead to white spots as the teeth were developing. Professional whitening kits, dental veneers, or tooth bonding can treat white spots on teeth.

Brown or Dark Spots

Trauma can cause dark and brown spots to form on the tooth. Dark discoloration can also be a result of the use of certain prescription medications. This type of staining is typically resistant to whitening gels and may require alternative cosmetic treatment. Bonding, veneers, or dental crowns can cover a damaged or darkly discolored tooth.
