What stains your teeth?
There’s a reason why your formerly bright smile has started to fade. Your teeth withstand a lot of wear and tear, and as we age, the bright white layer of dental enamel begins to thin. This process exposes more of the dentin underneath, which is naturally a dark yellowish color.
This happens to everyone, and there isn’t a lot you can do about the process. But you can turn back the clock with professional teeth whitening at our Doylestown dental office. Once your smile is back to its beautiful best, you need to educate yourself about the foods and habits that contribute to stained teeth.
What foods and habits will stain my teeth?
You probably already know the typical culprits – coffee and red wine. But you may not realize that certain ingredients in beer and white wine can also erode your dental enamel and promote staining.
Poor oral hygiene is another contributor that can lead to stained and discolored teeth. But the worst habit by far is using tobacco products. It takes a terrible toll on your body, but it also leads to tooth staining, gum disease, tooth loss and, in more severe cases, oral cancer.
We would be happy to arrange a cleaning for you so we can discuss teeth whitening options at our Doylestown dental office. At that time, we will also review basic oral health habits and steps you can take to keep your new smile white and bright!
