A beautiful smile can easily become your best feature. Many patients are concerned about keeping their smiles bright and glistening. However, teeth can turn yellow and dull for a number of reasons. These reasons include:
- Poor oral hygiene: If you are not taking proper care of your teeth, plaque and bacteria can build up along the surfaces, wearing away the enamel, causing tooth decay, and dulling your smile.
- Diet: Patients who enjoy coffee, tobacco, red wine, soda, juice, and brightly colored foods and candies may notice staining and discoloration on their teeth. These consumable products contain heavy dyes that remain on the teeth and can wear away the tooth enamel.
- Aging: Teeth will naturally yellow and darken over time and the white tooth enamel begins to wear away.
