What happened to my beautiful white smile?

Have your teeth lost their youthful luster? Are you looking for a quick way to give your smile a boost for a special occasion like a wedding or reunion? Professional take-home teeth whitening kits at Deep River Dentistry are an easy way and affordable way to brighten your teeth and give your smile a boost for any special event.

But you may wonder why your formerly bright, white smile has become dull and discolored over the years. There are many factors that contribute to the change in the appearance of your teeth

Aging – It Happens to Everyone

Everyone's teeth become worn and somewhat discolored as they age. You may be extremely proactive with your oral hygiene, but your teeth will still become slightly pitted and worn over time.

This wearing of enamel causes teeth to become more prone to discoloration because stains can penetrate the porous surface more easily.  Contributing to the yellow appearance of the teeth is the fact that as enamel wears away, the underlying dentin within the tooth becomes more apparent.

Dental Hygiene – You Know the Routine

If you don't practice good oral hygiene and schedule regular professional cleanings, you are most likely contributing to the discoloration of your teeth. Lack of proper at-home oral hygiene will always result in yellowing of the teeth, causing other major dental problems as well.

Genetics – Thanks Mom and Dad!

We can't do anything to change our inherent genetic makeup. The natural color of your teeth is as distinct as you are, which is why some people have teeth with a yellowish hue. The reason for this is that the outer layer of dental enamel has a more translucent quality, causing the dentin beneath to seem more obvious.

Staining – You are What you Eat

Certain foods and drinks such as red wine, tobacco products, dark fruit juices or sodas (like cola) definitely contribute to the discoloration of dental enamel. It is not necessary or even recommended that you cut out all these foods completely. There’s no reason to deny yourself the foods you enjoy, but you can increase the odds of maintaining a healthy white smile by brushing as soon as possible afterwards.

Efficient Treatment, Stunning Results

Great first impressions are created with a beautiful white smile. Greeting the world with a fresh, bright smile can also boost your self confidence. When you consider the cost and ease of using a professional take-home whitening kit, it just doesn’t make sense to go through life hiding a smile that doesn’t live up to your expectations.
