WHY ARE MY TEETH NOT WHITE?
There could be a number of reasons for teeth to be discolored. With age, teeth naturally tend to discolor, appear dull or become yellowish. This can get further pronounced by ingesting certain foods and beverages which have staining elements. Of course habits like chewing tobacco and smoking will most certainly deleteriously affect the color of teeth. Some other common causes for teeth to get discoloredis either some kind of trauma or an infection or some specific medications that may have been taken during the formative years of the teeth which can cause discoloration.
Teeth whitening/ Bleaching is the most common cosmetic dental procedure sought by people primarily to remove the accumulated stains on the teeth. These stains can be removed quickly, safely and with minimal discomfort utilizing In-Office whitening systems or custom home trays. Your dentist will be able to determine which treatment or combination of treatments is the best for you after a thorough examination.
