Will a teeth whitening kit damage bonding on front teeth?

I'm getting my two front teeth bonded in two weeks, but I whiten my teeth every few weeks and want to keep them white after the bonding. I know that the whitening bleach doesn't stick to bonding so I'm going to whiten before I get it done. But When I need to redo my teeth is it is ok to put the bleach on the bonding or can it be damaged. I want to keep my white teeth but I don't want my front teeth to be a different shade than my others. Help!

Will a teeth whitening kit damage bonding on front teeth?
The dentist will match the color to the existing shade of your teeth. You can still bleach after this is done, but the bleach wont work on the bonding so if the bonded teeth have any color change due to food and drinks, they will stay that color.
Reply:Be sure to mention to your dentist that you do maintenance bleaching, that way he will be aware of this when determining your shade. The veneers will not be affected by the bleaching treatment, but because of the shape change you may have to get new bleaching trays made. ie: the new bonding might be longer than what you have now and you wont get a proper fit.


Teeth Discoloration???

Recently my teeth have started to become discolored. usually my teeth are all one color but recently they have started to get white splotches on the bottom half. I think that it could be because I am a swimmer or because I have been sick and the plaque that gets on them overnight might be what is causing the discoloration the last thing might be due to the fact that I have been using whitening tooth paste and it is splotching my teeth. They have not been like this all my life so if anyone has any ideas that would would be great. Thanks

Teeth Discoloration???
Foods/drinks. Coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth.

Tobacco use. Smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth.

Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing to remove plaque and stain-producing substances like coffee and tobacco can cause tooth discoloration.

Disease. Several diseases that affect enamel (the hard surface of the teeth) and dentin (the underlying material under enamel) can lead to tooth discoloration. In addition, treatments for certain conditions can also affect tooth color. For example, head and neck radiation and chemotherapy can cause teeth discoloration. In addition, certain infections in pregnant mothers can cause tooth discoloration in the infant by affecting enamel development.

Medications. The antibiotics tetracycline and doxycycline are known to discolor teeth when given to children whose teeth are still developing (before the age of 8). Mouth rinses and washes containing chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride can also stain teeth. Antihistamines (like Benadryl), antipsychotic drugs, and antihypertensive medications also cause teeth discoloration.

Dental materials. Some of the materials used in dentistry, such as amalgam restorations, especially silver sulfide-containing materials, can cast a gray-black color to teeth.

Advancing age. As you age, the outer layer of enamel on your teeth gets worn away revealing the natural yellow color of dentin.

Genetics. Some people have naturally brighter or thicker enamel than others.

Environment. Excessive fluoride either from environmental sources (naturally high fluoride levels in water) or from excessive use (fluoride applications, rinses, toothpaste, and fluoride supplements taken by mouth) can cause teeth discoloration.

Trauma. For example, damage from a fall can disturb enamel formation in young children whose teeth are still developing. Trauma can also cause discoloration to adult teeth.

How Can I Prevent Teeth Discoloration?

By making a few simple lifestyle changes, you may be able to prevent teeth discoloration. For example, if you are a coffee drinker and/or smoker, consider cutting back or quitting all together. Also, improve your dental hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly and getting your teeth cleaned by a dental hygienist every 6 months.

If your teeth appear to be an abnormal color without ready explanation and, if other symptoms are also present, make an appointment to see your dentist.

What Treatment Options Are Available to Whiten Teeth?

Treatment options can vary depending on the cause of the discoloration and may include.

Using proper tooth brushing and flossing techniques
Reply:Mine do the same thing. Ask your dentist.
Reply:Get a bleaching kit from your dentist. This will get them all evenly white. It worked for me! Good luck!
Reply:i got a whitening kit from my dentist and they said when whitening your teeth,even with whitening toothpaste, its normal for white spots to appear at first then it will even out.

so no worries
Reply:I used to have those to, my dentist told me it was a sign of calcium deficiency (might be a different problem for you though). He suggested that I take a calcium supplement everyday. Of course you should not do that on your own without asking your dentist or doctor first, since your problem may be different.

Do you usually drink a lot of milk and eat dairy products?, if you do than your calcium intake is probably fine. If not, then ask your doctor, you may need to take supplements. Calcium is VERY important, especially for women. Talk to your doctor about it. I take supplements everyday but it's better if you can get it through foods.
Reply:I'm sure you dentist will help you with this. They'll either give you special toothpaste or clean the plaque off for you which is always great.

How many teeth should an adult human have?

Minus wisdom teeth....

I have had 4 pulled and I am trying to figure out if this tooth coming in is a wisdom tooth or if it is a normal tooth (I have 22 teeth without counting wisdom teeth)

How many teeth should an adult human have?
Without the wisdom teeth, you should have 28. Here is a link to show all the teeth. Hope this helps.
Reply:32 including wisdoms!
Reply:You should have 26 teeth's. If you're 18-20 they might be wisdom teeth.
Reply:28 teeth then you have four wisdom thats 32 total.. well i only have two wisdom teeth i don't have top ones.
Reply:adult=32w/widsom teeth but if you have 22 then you must have had other teeth removed...Did you have orthodontics?? like braces. some people have teeth removed other then wisdom teeth if there isn't enough room for all of them in your mouth

Teeth to get pulled?? help?

i hate it.. but anyways.

im getting "shark teeth" with 2 of my teeth..

one is a molar and its pushed the baby one completly on its side pointing towards the inside of my mouth, but i cant get it out..

and the other is my right canine and the baby one isnt very loose but the adult one is kinda big...

i really want to get my braces on as soon as possible so i can get them off fast. i dont want them in my senior pictures and i dont know how long ill have to have my braces on... im in 9th grade.

so please give me a way to get my teeth out. the loose and not the loose.. but mainly the "shark" ones.

please a way besides the dentist if you can, thats going to be very expensive and the braces are already going to cost a bunch..

thank you in advance :]

Teeth to get pulled?? help?
You have to go to a dentist. The pain from pulling them by yourself could be enough to make you faint, plus you could get an infection and end up dying from it. Also, if you damage the bone in your jaw by trying to pull them yourself, you could end up disfigured and your teeth would look even worse. For gosh sakes go to the dentist. This isn't something you can do yourself girlfriend. TALK TO YOUR PARENTS!!!
Reply:Well if they aren't loosening up on their own and coming out, you *may* need the dentist to remove them. If you go in for cleanings, perhaps at the next appointment you can talk to them about it and ask if they have any suggestions, or find out at that time if it would need to be done by them.

I've had all four wisdom teeth out, the baby teeth, since they don't have the deep roots that adult teeth have, probably shouldn't be difficult at all in comparison.


Pu--y teeth?

A little boy accompanies his mother shopping and is waiting outside the ladies’ dressing room for her to emerge, boredom causing him to fidget. When his mother comes out, she spies her son sliding his hand up a mannequin’s skirt. "Get your hand out of there!" she shouts. "Don’t you know that women have teeth down there?" The little boy quickly snatches his hand away and thanks his lucky stars he wasn’t bitten.

For the ensuing years, this little boy grows up believing all women have teeth between their legs.

When he is 16, he gets a girlfriend. One night, while her parents are out of town, she invites him over for a little action. After an hour of making out and grinding on the sofa, she says, "You know, you could go a little further if you want." "What do you mean?" he asks. "Well, why don’t you put your hand down there?" she says, pointing to her crotch. "Hell, no," he cries, "you’ve got teeth there!" "Don’t be ridiculous," she responds, "there’s no teeth down there." "Yes, there are", he says, "my mother told me so." "No, there aren’t," she insists. "Here, look for yourself." With that, she pulls down her panties and gives him a little peek. "No, I’m sorry," he says. "My mother already told me that ALL women have teeth down there." "Oh, for crying out loud!" she cries. She whips off her panties, throws her legs behind her head, and says, "LOOK, I don’t have any teeth down there."

The boy takes a good long look, then replies, "Well, with the state of those gums, I’m not surprised!"

Teeth at 3 months?

My daughter, now 3 months old, Started tething at 2 months. The doctor said she could teeth for months, or wake up one day with a tooth. My cousin had 2 teeth by the time he was 3 1/2 months, I was just wondering how soon your kids actually got teeth. Thanks!!

Teeth at 3 months?
Well my husband got his first at 4.5 months and I was 6 months.

My daughter just got hers when she was 4 months and 3 weeks, then a week later the second came in right beside.

I could tell she was teething early like your daughter is but babies teeth can move up and down for months and not break through. They don't just pop out one day, it is a long and painful process!
Reply:About four months. My nephew is almost five months and he's been cutting for a few weeks. But my mom told me just a few weeks ago that some babies are born with teeth. Scary.
Reply:believe it or not, some babies are born with teeth, but they usually are replaed with new baby teeth
Reply:My little girl did the same thing. She had her first one a 2 months. So around 2 months untill they should have them.
Reply:My two youngest two both got their first teeth at 2 months. My oldest two were on a more "normal" schedule of getting them at around 6 months.

My husband got his baby teeth early, so according to our dentist there is a bit of a genetic predisposition to get teeth early.

Just take good care of the teeth once they erupt, and be prepared that early to come in may also mean early to come out. My daughter is now 6, and her friends are just loosing their first baby teeth and she has already gotten 4 permanent teeth.
