How Do Tooth Stains Happen?

Teeth can become stained for a wide variety of reasons. One of the most common causes of stains is frequent exposure to certain foods and beverages, including coffee, pasta sauce, tea and other acidic or richly-pigmentated substances. If you smoke or use tobacco, you’re also far more prone to stains over time as the tar begins to collect on your enamel.

However, some stains appear as a natural result of aging, making treatments like teeth whitening very popular among older patients. As enamel becomes worn down, the naturally-yellow dentin layer begins to show more over time. With take-home whitening kits, you can reduce the appearance of yellow stains, whether they are extrinsic (results from external stimuli) or intrinsic (occurring internally.)

What is DayWhite?

DayWhite is a whitening system developed by Philips designed to help patients whiten teeth within the privacy of their own home. The system uses hydrogen peroxide bleaching gels and custom-made trays that are worn on a daily basis for a set period of time. The system offers three strengths of whitening, including 6 percent, 9.5 percent and 14 percent depending on your needs. If you want the fastest whitening possible with the shortest amount of time needed to obtain results, a higher strength is the best option for you. Luckily, the lower strengths give patients the opportunity to whiten teeth, even if they struggle with sensitivity.
