Teeth Stained by Meds? Dentists Can Help

There are many reasons for teeth to get stained. One of them is ingesting medicine. For example: tetracycline is known to stain teeth to a deep yellow and even dark brown color, and tetracycline-induced teeth discolorations are among the most difficult to whiten. The condition often starts before teeth erupt through the gums, which means that children are the most susceptible; adults, however, can also develop it through oral intake of tetracycline.

In the past, whitening teeth stained by tetracycline use was considered “impossible”. Fortunately, dental procedures have caught up to the problem through such breakthrough methods as the KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ system. Locals can receive this treatment from a reputable cosmetic dentist in Wilkes Barre.

According to Dr. Rod Kurthy, who developed the system, it is designed to restore the tooth's ability to absorb the oxygen from the bleaching agent for a whiter result. In addition to tetracycline use, your teeth also loses this ability as you age, which explains why older people tend to have yellowed or browned teeth. The radicals from the agent break up long-chain stain molecules, resulting in white and colorless molecules.

A skilled Wilkes-Barre cosmetic dentist offers this treatment, giving hope to those who have even the most challenging teeth whitening concerns. The KoR system also provides this other great advantage—it has a permanent effect so you can go through the rest of your life eating and drinking anything you want without fear of staining your teeth.
