Tooth discoloration can have many causes. It can occur as a result of an abnormal process of development. Also, it can be caused by tetracycline antibiotic treatment during childhood. Some people have genetically darker enamel colour. Over time, discoloration can naturally take place as a result of drinking tea, coffee, juice or using tobacco. Sometimes older or incorrectly  placed dental fillings or damage to the dental pulp may also influence the colour of the teeth.

Special bleaching agents, when used correctly, remove most discolorations safely and efficiently. They usually come in the form of gels that release chemically active substances for several hours daily. This causes discoloration to disappear and restores teeth to a nice, whiter colour. Tooth structure remains intact and the result satisfies 90 to 95 percent of patients. Prosthetic reconstructions and dental fillings remain unchanged during the whitening process. Once the new white colour reaches a certain level of stability (approximately two weeks), the dentist  can then alter the colour of the restorations, adjusting their shade to the colour of the teeth.
