Help with discolored teeth

  1. You take good care of your teeth. You brush twice a day and regularly go to the dentist for check-ups. Yet not everyone has even white teeth. After all, discoloration of the teeth cannot always be prevented. Fortunately it can be treated.

  1. Teeth discoloration can have various causes. If your mother has taken antibiotics as a pregnant woman, you may suffer from 'tetracycline discoloration'. This dark brown discoloration on the outside of your teeth only becomes visible when your adult teeth have broken through.


  1. Dyes from food and stimulants leave traces on your teeth throughout your life. Coffee, tea, smoking and wine are good examples of this. By filling holes and placing crowns, color differences can arise in the mouth. If a nerve of a tooth dies and the dead contents of the root canal remain, it can give a bluish-gray discoloration. This discoloration is inside your tooth.


  1. You can try to polish off discoloration that is on the surface of the tooth. Various whitening toothpastes are available for this. Often discolourations lie deeper in the enamel, so that brushing away does not help. Then you can have your teeth bleached. Below the most common applications for even teeth.

Fillings You can prevent color differences due to filling holes or placing crowns by asking for a filling with tooth-colored material. The dark amalgam filling that used to fill all the holes can now be replaced by a tooth-colored filling: composite. Dead teeth When a tooth is called dead, only the nerve is really dead. If the dead nerve remains in the tooth, the tooth will discolour on the inside. The dentist can remove the dead nerve with a root canal treatment. After this, he or she can apply a so-called 'ongoing bleaching method'. Then the cavity where the nerve has been is filled with a bleaching liquid. This liquid is taken out after a few days and replaced by a white filling that fills the cavity permanently. A Facing The current bleaching method does not have the desired result in all cases. Then a crown or facing is the last resort. A crown is a tooth-colored casing that is placed over the ground tooth. Facing is the application of a layer of composite on the front of the teeth. This will mask discoloration. Facing is also used to shape and stand

  1. The result is not very predictable. Over time, the result will diminish, which often necessitates retreatment. Smoking, tea and coffee will often cause discoloration again over time. This happens even faster than before bleaching, because bleaching makes the surface of the teeth more porous. Increase in tooth sensitivity. Usually this is a temporary effect.
