Is There a Difference Between Tooth Decay and Tooth Discoloration?


What’s the difference between tooth decay and tooth discoloration? Is there a difference and how can you tell which is which? Whitening Lightning says yes–there’s a difference! Here’s what it is….

The biggest difference is this: tooth decay is a silent, secret villain that attacks under the radar. Tooth discoloration, on the other hand screams loud and clear–Look At Me!

4 Steps

On the other hand, you don’t always know if you have tooth decay. Pain is not an indicator.

By the time most of us feel the pain of a cavity, the decay is advanced. It has often begun to cause damage to the nerve at this point. Most early decay goes unnoticed, and that’s why it’s especially important to visit your dentist regularly. Best to catch problems early! Not only is decay damaging to the teeth, the longer you wait to deal with it, the more expensive the treatment.

If you have decay, your tooth might hurt, but don’t put aspirin directly onto it. Putting aspirin directly on the painful area could burn the tissues in your mouth. This will hurt even worse. Follow the label and swallow the tablets instead.

Tooth Hygiene
Did you know the angle you hold your tooth brush at is important? It is!

Dentists recommend holding your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle. Point the bristles toward your gums. Brushing a few times a day ensures plaque doesn’t get a chance to build up on your teeth. Using a soft-bristled brush is gentler on your teeth and is least likely to cause damage.

So there you go! There is a big difference between tooth decay and tooth discoloration. Give Dial A Smile a try. Watch this short but informative demo video by Cara Van Brocklin to learn more about the Super Booster Whitening Pen:
