Are you self-conscious about your smile because your teeth are dark and discolored? Uncover the source of your staining and get a brighter, better smile.

The Roots of Tooth Discoloration

A variety of factors can leave you with stained teeth. Some are within your control, while others happen naturally. Most dental darkness is caused by the following factors:

  • Poor dental hygiene habits prevent people from removing the plaque and particles that can badly discolor teeth.
  • Certain foods and beverages can leave teeth with severe stains, such as coffee, tea, red wine, cola, and darker fruits and vegetables.
  • Tobacco is a leading cause of the discoloration of teeth, higher tooth decay, and oral cancer.
  • Trauma to the face can cause dental damage that darkens a tooth.
  • Age tends to naturally darken teeth since tooth enamel erodes over time, which exposes the tooth’s lower layer of darker dentin.
  • Genetics can mean some people are more likely to suffer with discoloration of teeth.
  • Some medications, antibiotics, and antihistamines have the unfortunate side effect of tooth discoloration.

Solutions for Stained Teeth

Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer in silence with darker teeth. There are many ways to deal with the discoloration of teeth. The most common options include:

  • In-office professional tooth whitening
  • Dental veneers
  • Bonding
  • Crowns

Ask your dentist which treatments are best for your personal needs and discover a brighter future.
