Teeth Whitening

Your smile portrays confidence, but if your teeth have become yellow or discolored over time, you may not have the confidence to let others see it. Teeth whitening has become a popular treatment for millions of people looking for ways to brighten their smile, and bring back the confidence to show those pearly whites.

Common Reasons for Tooth Discoloration

Our teeth are meant to be white, but over time our habits can cause discoloration, yellowing, or worse. Some of the most common reasons teeth become discolored-many of which are preventable-include:

  • Consumption of certain foods and drinks. Coffee, tea, cola, wines, and even some fruits and vegetables can stain your teeth.
  • Smoking or chewing tobacco. It’s bad for your teeth, it’s a leading cause of oral cancer, and it’s bad for your health in general.
  • Lack of proper oral hygiene. Patients who don’t spend enough time brushing and flossing may see plaque buildup which cause staining or discoloration on the surface of the teeth.
  • Disease, treatment, and medication. Sometimes tooth discoloration is not caused by daily habits, but instead by diseases that affect the hard surface of your teeth, such as chemotherapy or radiation. Medications with certain active ingredients can also discolor teeth.
  • Age and genetics. Our teeth naturally discolor over time as the enamel wears out, or discoloration may come from a genetic disposition toward thin or discolored enamel.
