There may be any one of a number of reasons why your teeth have lost their bright, white appearance. These include age, lifestyle habits, and even the type of medication you take.
As we age, it’s natural for our bright smiles to dim somewhat. Day after day, our teeth take abuse whether we care for them properly or not. The result is that the surface enamel develops tiny holes that catch food debris, darkening your smile. At the same time, this allows the underlying yellowish dentin to show through.
The Decisions You Make Matter
You may not be aware of it, but there are a number of choices you make that impact the whiteness of your teeth. Smoking or using nicotine products can quickly cause your teeth to become severely stained and discolored. Consuming stain-producing food and drinks like coffee, dark tea, cola, raspberries and blueberries can also darken tooth enamel.
Fortunately, professional teeth whitening treatments at our High Point dental office are very effective for reducing or eliminating a lot of these types of stains. We can prepare a take-home whitening kit that you can use at your convenience. In about a week to ten days, you’ll see the beautiful results.
Please contact our office to arrange a professional dental cleaning. At that time we can talk to you about our convenient, effective, teeth whitening treatment.
