When we’re talking about why your teeth are not bright white, there are a few things that might be coming into play. Recognize that there’s not necessarily any “fault” here. You don’t need to feel upset or disappointed in yourself. In many instances, this is just a sign that your smile has been used for many years, so there’s not much you could have done to avoid the color change. In other instances, a simple tweak to your habits can help. Of course, also remember that we can brighten your smile with teeth whitening – just give us a call.
Reason #1: You’re Older Now!
While age brings wisdom and some other exciting perks, it can also result in discolored teeth. Your teeth are brand new during your teens when your permanent smile takes form. As a result, your teeth are generally very bright. However, as a result of eating, drinking, and just using your smile every day of your life, some staining may occur. Take comfort: We can fix this with teeth whitening.
Reason #2: You Love Coffee, Tea, Etc.
Beyond the natural effects of aging are some culprits that commonly lead to yellowing, darkening, and an all around less than vibrant grin. When you consistently partake in certain things (like coffee or tea or staining foods), you will find that your smile discolors. Again, we can remove these stains with teeth whitening and you can cut back on these foods and drinks (or brush more frequently).
Reason #3: You Need Better Habits
Not really cleaning your smile very well these days? Forgetting about your checkups and cleanings? It may show! Get back on track with prevention (and throw teeth whitening into the mix) and you’ve got yourself a vivid smile.
