Are Discolored Teeth Ruining Your Smile?
Teeth often become discolored over time due to many reasons, such as:
Consumption of staining foods like tea, coffee, red wine, and soya sauce
Teas (especially black tea), coffees, and even some wines contain tannins, a natural substance that stains teeth.
Heavy smoking and excessive alcohol consumption
The tar and nicotine in cigarettes and tobacco products leave behind yellowish or brown stains on teeth. The high sugars and acids in alcohol break down teeth enamel, causing discoloration.
In-office teeth whitening treatments eliminate tar and nicotine stains.
Tooth enamel degrades over time, as we age, and wears down. The yellowish dentin layer begins to show through. The rate of tooth enamel wear depends on genetics, oral hygiene, and diet.
Medications and Mouthwashes
Certain antibiotics and mouthwashes containing staining chemicals can also stain teeth.
After evaluating your teeth, Dr. Graffeo will decide on the right bleach concentration and duration to get the desired results.
