What Causes Tooth Stains | Teeth Whitening in Ottawa

In addition to what you eat and drink, there are some other major sources of tooth stains:

  • Smoking
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Aging
  • Certain medications
  • Excessive fluoride in water (fluorosis)

Many of these stains are topical and can be removed through teeth whitening at our Ottawa area office or with one of our professional-strength tooth whitening kits. However, deeper stains – such as those caused by tetracycline or fluorosis – may require an advanced cosmetic dentistry solution. If your stains are intrinsic (underneath the enamel), our cosmetic dentists will evaluate the extent of discoloration and recommend the best treatment for your specific needs.

Teeth Whitening What to Expect

Dr. Barakat or your dentist will prepare your teeth with a thorough dental cleaning. The tooth cleaning will remove any bacteria, food debris, or superficial stains for optimal whitening results. During the cosmetic consultation, your dentist will help you choose which shade of white you would like to achieve.

The Iveri whitening system uses a dentist formulated gel containing the whitening agent hydrogen peroxide and carabamide peroxide. The gel is applied to clean teeth using a special plastic whitening tray that adheres to the teeth. Then, a LED light is used to activate the gel’s powerful whitening agents.

In just 20 minutes the treatment is over and the teeth are whiter and brighter. Teeth whitening is a comfortable, affordable and noninvasive cosmetic treatment option that can take years off of your smile.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Will Iveri whitening gel cause tooth sensitivity?

The Iveri formula uses potassium nitrate to reduce the risk of sensitivity commonly associated with teeth whitening. Potassium nitrate is a common ingredient in sensitivity toothpaste.

Will Iveri whitening leave a bad taste in my mouth?

The Iveri gel solution contains xylitol making it sweeter and less unpleasant tasting than alternative whitening gels.

Is the tooth whitening treatment permanent?

Avoiding certain drinks and foods as well as lifestyle habits can help keep your teeth whiter for longer. Tea, coffee, red wine, and smoking are all common teeth staining agents.

Dr. Barakat can touch up your teeth in office, and also provides convenient at-home touch-up kits that can be used periodically to brighten teeth.

Is charcoal teeth whitening bad?

Recently, charcoal teeth whitening has gained some popularity as an alternative to topical bleaches. However whitening teeth with charcoal is not good idea. Charcoal is incredibly abrasive, which makes it fairly effective at removing surface stains. Unfortunately, along with those stains, charcoal can remove tooth enamel, exposing dentin and further yellowing the teeth. More worrisome, charcoal can work its way into dentin, damaging the internal structure of your teeth.

Dangers of charcoal teeth whitening include:

Inconsistent whitening
Accelerated enamel erosion
Increased risks for gum disease and tooth decay

If you are considering natural tooth whitening solutions, our teeth whitening dentists suggest focusing first on prevention. Even the simple act of brushing after every meal and snack, when combined with professional cleanings, can help ensure a bright smile. When stains do appear, our teeth whitening solutions are both safe and effective, and offer a lasting solution for even the most stubborn of stains.
