Have you noticed that your pearly whites are not quite as pearly or white as they used to be? Over time many factors can play a role in tooth discoloration. Most tooth discoloration and staining happens as we age and the enamel surface of our teeth weakens. Years of chewing and general use can cause your tooth enamel to become thin and crack, allowing staining agents to stick to your teeth. The types of food and beverages you consume, smoking, bruxism and trauma can all contribute to tooth discoloration. By modifying some of these habits you may be able to limit future staining, but the only way to actually get rid of stains and brighten teeth is through dental products.
Thanks to recent scientific advancements, you now have more options than ever when it comes to teeth whitening procedures, products and treatments.
