What is fluorosis?
Fluorosis is a dental condition that can affect how your teeth look. If you experienced excessive exposure to fluoride when you were young, your teeth may have discoloration in the form of stains that are light yellowish to dark brown. Fluorosis was first discovered in the early 1900s in Colorado Springs, where there were extremely high concentrations of fluoride occurring naturally in the water.
In addition to the stains, the people of Colorado Springs had very few cavities. This caused public health professionals to look for a good balance — enough fluoride to prevent cavities, but not so much that the stains were produced. Well-meaning parents who give their children extra fluoride supplements may be dismayed to find they’ve caused their childrens’ teeth to be discolored.
If you’re one of the people who have experienced teeth discoloration due to fluorosis, we have a solution for you. Our CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit has the chemicals necessary to remove the stains caused by fluorosis. As you begin a whitening treatment, be aware that the fluorosis symptoms could actually seem worse when you first start a teeth whitening regimen, but after a short time, the discoloration should begin to disappear.
The Levels of Severity of Fluorosis
- Questionable – The enamel shows slight changes, small spots.
- Very Mild – Small opaque white spots are scattered over less than 25 percent of the teeth.
- Mild – Affected areas of the teeth are more prevalent, but still under 50 percent of the surface.
- Moderate – Discoloration affects more than 50% of the enamel surface.
- Severe – The full surface of the enamel is affected. Teeth also have pitting.
How does the CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit make the stains go away?
Each CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit comes with two teeth whitening trays. They’re easy to customize to your teeth so you won’t have to waste any of the solution or get any on your gums or other soft tissue, which can cause discomfort. The kit also comes with teeth whitening gel and foam. You can choose which to use based on your circumstances.
If you need teeth whitening for sensitive teeth, you probably want to use the foam, which has an 8 percent concentration of carbamide peroxide and a refreshing mint flavor. This is gentle enough to be used on sensitive teeth, and you can use the teeth whitening foam up to five times a day. You can also choose to wear the whitening trays with the foam overnight. That way, it doesn’t take any time out of your schedule. Because the trays were developed with the help of dental professionals, they are comfortable enough to wear all night. They are made of our patented VistaMaxx material and do not absorb bacteria, so they are also easy to clean and hygienic.
If sensitive teeth aren’t a consideration for you, you can choose to use the dental professional strength teeth whitening gel that comes with the CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit. The gel has a 22 percent solution of carbamide peroxide, which is among the strongest available among take-home teeth whitening kits. When you use the gel, you only need to whiten your teeth for 5-20 minutes each day to see amazing results.
The way the teeth whitening foam and gel work is the same. The chemicals in the whitening product attack stains on your teeth and break them into small particles. As the particles get smaller, more of your natural white teeth show so they look whiter. For an issue like fluorosis, it may take a bit longer to achieve full results, but you should notice a significant difference from when you first begin the whitening process.
How do I get affordable teeth whitening for fluorosis?
There are many teeth whitening options available to you. These include toothpastes, strips, and in-office dental procedures. The CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit is more effective over the long run than toothpastes or strips, and much more affordable than in-office treatments. You can expect to pay upwards of $1,000 for an in-office dentist’s whitening treatment, and even a take-home kit from the dentist can cost hundreds of dollars.
The CustMbite Smile Whitening Kit is available for $30 and lasts about a month. You don’t need to buy the whole kit again, because the whitening trays last as long as you need them. In fact, they can easily be re-fit to your teeth if you have dental work done. Refills for the foam or the gel cost $15 each for a month’s supply, depending on daily use.
