Wouldn’t it be great if your teeth stayed bright and white your entire life? Unfortunately, the reality is that many factors contribute to the yellowing or staining of the teeth. The most common among them are:
What you eat and drink – Do you love your morning cup (or two) of coffee? What about a glass of red wine in the evening? Dark pigmented foods and beverages have particles that can penetrate the enamel, leaving stains on the teeth.
Most individuals with stains or discoloration are good candidates for teeth whitening. Certain severe forms of discoloration, such as Tetracycline staining, might be resistant to whitening and require coverage with a veneer.
Before undergoing professional teeth whitening, you need to be in good oral health. Any tooth decay or signs of gum disease will need to be treated before an individual can undergo a teeth whitening procedure.
There are many benefits of using professional teeth whitening services from your dentist. They include:
Immediately following a professional tooth whitening service, your teeth may be more susceptible to stains for several days, so avoiding dark pigmented foods and beverages is advisable. Make sure to brush and floss daily and use an anti-sensitivity toothpaste if you are experiencing sensitivity.
To keep your smile looking great long term, practice good oral hygiene, brush your teeth immediately after consuming stain-causing foods and beverages, and maintain your routine dental cleanings.
