Understand Why Teeth Become Stained
The short answer is because you eat and drink things. Pretty much everything we consume adds to the stains on our smiles. In other words, it’s perfectly normal for teeth to become yellower or darker as people get older.
Now, with that caveat, some food and drink are more likely to cause stains to appear faster. Coffee and tea are common culprits. Both have tannins that contribute to their own color. Soft drinks, wine, and fruit juices also have colorful ingredients. If you think about food, you can think of many examples as well. Pasta sauces, soups, dips, and desserts are just a few of the tasty treats that come to mind.
Tobacco use also is known to speed up the staining of smiles, although that is just one of many reasons to avoid these products.
Despite what you have seen in commercials, the whitening products available in the toothpaste aisle aren’t likely to turn teeth from canary yellow to pearly white. To get the results you really want, we recommend professional whitening options.
Professional Fixes For Your Smile
You can have a bright smile again. You also have a few options to create the smile you wish to see when you look in the mirror.
Professional teeth whitening products have a higher concentration of bleaching agents that the things you will find in stores. As a result, they can do more in less time. This also is why they can remove deep stains from your teeth.
We offer two whitening services at our practice. You are looking for results as quickly as possible, we recommend our in-office whitening. In a single appointment, you can see a noticeable change in the color of your smile.
If you prefer the convenience of whitening your smile while watching TV or relaxing in your pajamas, we can provide you with a take-home kit. This includes custom whitening trays and Philips NiteWhite gel. By using these tools as directed, you can see big changes to your smile in a few weeks.
As great as both of those services can be, they won’t work for everyone. This also is why we recommend that you schedule a consultation with a dental professional before you try any whitening product.
If you are not a good candidate for teeth bleaching, you can still brighten your smile with dental veneers. In a way, veneers are for your teeth what fake fingernails are for your fingernails. Veneers are made to conceal your natural teeth and improve how they appear to others. With proper care, veneers can last for a decade or longer.
