Can You Brighten Brown Teeth?

Posted on 2/6/2023 by Dr Anthony Bouneff
Can You Brighten Brown Teeth?Your teeth can be stained by various causes. For instance, if you are a smoker, there are high chances that your teeth will turn brown due to the carbon emitted by the smoke you inhale. Also, conditions like tooth decay and periodontitis can also discolor your teeth. Luckily, it is possible to brighten brown teeth.

Start by Talking To Us

If you are looking for ways to brighten your brown teeth, you should start by talking to us. Our professionals can help you find the most reliable teeth whitening treatment that doesn't pose any risks. You also need expert advice because you might have underlying conditions like gum disease and decay that must be addressed before the whitening procedure. This helps limit gum irritation and tooth sensitivity during whitening. Remember, teeth whitening procedures are more effective on healthy teeth.

Apart from fixing underlying conditions, our dentists can also identify whether the brownish stains are intrinsic or extrinsic. Extrinsic stains are those that occur on the surface of your tooth and can easily be removed by thorough brushing. On the other hand, intrinsic stains are those present on the surface beneath the tooth enamel. Such stains require advanced procedures like bleaching, a reaction that changes the color of your tooth. Each type of stain affects your teeth differently, and the type of treatment also varies.

Whitening Toothpaste

You can brighten your brown teeth by using whitening toothpaste. This toothpaste uses mild abrasives to eliminate the brown stains on the surface of your teeth. As much as some whitening pastes contain hydrogen peroxide or baking soda, they primarily rely on polishing rather than bleaching to get rid of the brown spots. Consequently, you might have to use it for a longer period before seeing the desired results. If you desire quicker results, you can opt for other alternatives like whitening strips.
