Why Your Teeth Turn Yellow
The short answer: because you eat and drink things.
No one is suggesting that you stop eating, but using your teeth for their intended purpose — biting and chewing — adds to the stains that develop on them. Most of us understand that drinking a cup of coffee (or two or more) every day, eating foods with colorful ingredients (e.g. pasta, salsa, etc.), and using tobacco products are going to add to the discoloration of our teeth.
A good guideline to remember is that if something can stain your shirt, then it probably can stain your teeth, too.
In other words, every bite and every sip you make is adding a little something to the stains on your smile. Since this happens slowly, most of the time we don’t notice the subtle changes from week-to-week or even month-to-month. But after years or decades, those changes become hard to deny.
Bring Back Your ‘Pearly Whites’
The kinds of stains caused by food, drink, and tobacco products are considered extrinsic stains. Whitening products with bleaching agents can remove these stains, but not all whitening products are created equal.
Whitening toothpaste can remove surface stains, but may not reach deeper stains on your teeth. Over-the-counter gels and strips can go a little deeper, but they contain relatively small amounts of active ingredients.
Professional whitening products have higher concentrations of bleaching agents. This allows them to work more quickly and more effectively to remove stains that have taken years.
At our Birmingham office, you have the choice of fast-acting in-office treatment or the convenience of do-it-yourself take-home care.
With Zoom whitening, you can see a visible brighter smile in about an hour at our office. If you prefer to handle things on your own, our take-home kits are simple to use, but they do more than anything you will find in stores.
Be Ready for Your Big Night Out
You can have a beautiful smile in time for Valentine’s Day, your graduation, or your high school reunion. Whatever your next big event is, let Newingham Dental Center help you feel confident about your smile.
