Changes in tooth color occur gradually over time. It’s not as if you just wake up one day and find that they are stained, discolored, or dull. What causes these effects, though, and more important, what can you do about them? Here at Eastgate Dental Excellence, we have answers for you.
The biggest culprit when it comes to affecting the color of your teeth is tobacco. This may be due to smoking, but the delivery method is not as important as the product itself. And because of this, vaping is just as problematic when it comes to staining as smoking is. You may already know that red wine stains teeth, but did you know that the same is true of white wine? Colas are also a major reason for needing our Anderson teeth whitening. And let’s not forget tea and coffee. For millions of people, one of these beverages is a morning starter. And both have become all day long indulgences, in both hot and iced forms. In addition to drinks, foods like berries (all kinds), curry, soy sauce, and many forms of hard candy have a negative impact that our Anderson teeth whitening can reverse. There are some common causes of teeth stains that aren’t necessarily within your control. If you need certain prescription medications, like tetracycline, you can’t simply not take them, even if teeth staining is a side-effect. There is also a natural process that occurs whereby your tooth enamel steadily wears down with age, revealing the less brilliant tissue underneath. Add to that fluorosis, a condition caused by too much fluoride during early tooth development, and it’s not difficult to figure out why whitening treatment is so popular.
