What Causes Dark Teeth?

We would love to have white, beautiful teeth all the time. The reality is that many people suffer from dark or discolored teeth, which can create a lack of self-confidence. Dark or discolored teeth can result from a number of situations.

Check out this post specifically about the causes of brown teeth.

  • Poor dental hygiene. If you fail to brush and floss regularly, yellow plaque and food stains can build up. Failing to go to the dentist for regular checkups allows stains to stay on your teeth for long periods of time.
  • Tobacco. Tobacco products, such as cigarettes and chewing tobacco, will stain your teeth.
  • Foods and drinks. Certain drinks, such as red wine, coffee, and tea, stain teeth a darker color. Some starchy foods, such as pasta, will make your teeth more likely to stain.
  • Disease. If you have cancer and are receiving radiation treatments or chemotherapy, you may notice a darkening of your teeth. Some childhood illnesses will affect the way teeth develop, leaving them discolored throughout life.
  • Medications. Certain antibiotics negatively affect enamel development in children, causing discolored teeth. Other kinds of medications are also known to darken teeth. Ask your dentist if the medications you take are affecting the color of your teeth.
  • Aging. The white enamel on the outside of your teeth wears away as you get older. This reveals the yellow dentin underneath. The dentin also grows thicker over time, making your teeth look denser and darker.
  • Too much fluoride. If you have been exposed to too much fluoride, either in your drinking water or heavy usage of toothpaste and mouthwash, you may suffer from fluorosis, which creates white spots on your teeth.
  • Old dental materials. If you ever had any fillings or dental restorations that contained silver sulfide, you may notice it gives your teeth a grayer appearance.
  • Trauma. Sports injuries or other blows to the teeth can cause problems that hurt the teeth and make them discolored

How Today’s Dental Can Treat Dark Teeth

Your dentist in Omaha can examine your dark or discolored teeth and give you treatment options for your unique situation. Some of the more common ways we treat dark teeth include teeth whitening, tooth bonding, and porcelain veneers.


How Today’s Dental Can Help

In-Office Teeth Whitening

An in-office teeth whitening appointment is capable of whitening your teeth several shades brighter in one sitting. We use professional-grade whitening gel and a special curing light to safely and effectively whiten teeth. However, you should always ask your dentist first whether your teeth are right for our in-office teeth whitening services. In general, teeth whitening works best on yellow teeth that are not stained due to age. In-office whitening is not guaranteed to be effective on all types of dark teeth. Your teeth should be healthy if you are planning on using our teeth whitening services. If you have sensitive teeth, you may want to choose a different treatment option as in-office teeth whitening can create more sensitivity.

Teeth Whitening Kits

Today’s Dental can provide you with teeth whitening kits that are customized to your mouth. The kits consist of custom trays filled with teeth whitening gel. You can use these kits at home whenever it is most convenient for you. These teeth whitening kits are more gentle than the in-office teeth whitening services, but they also take more time to produce results.

As with in-office teeth whitening services, the teeth whitening kits are not guaranteed to be effective on all types of dark or discolored teeth.

Tooth Bonding

If your dark teeth cannot be whitened with our teeth whitening services, we might recommend dental bonding, which is a tooth-colored resin applied directly to your tooth. Bonding is often used to fix a chipped or broken tooth, but it can also hide imperfections, such as darkened areas of your tooth caused by injury or medication.

Porcelain Veneers

A dental veneer is a very thin tooth-colored shell that is bonded to the front of a tooth. The veneer is designed to hide imperfections, which might be exactly what you want to do with your dark or discolored tooth. At Today’s Dental, we can ensure your veneer looks just like a natural tooth, so you can enjoy a beautiful smile unmarred by dark spots.
