Why are my teeth stained?
It is not uncommon for your teeth to darken and stain as you get older. Aside from age, the answer may lie in the types of food and beverages you consume regularly.
You may remember that when you were younger, your teeth were a fresh, bright white. At some point in your 20s, you probably noticed that your teeth were becoming a bit dull or discolored.
This occurs because as you age, your teeth become more porous, which allows food debris and other staining agents to penetrate the surface enamel. The result is teeth that are discolored and darker than they should be.
Frequently consuming food and beverages that stain your teeth compounds the problem. Some of these are coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-colored berries. In limited quantities these are fine, but if your teeth are stained, they could be the culprits.
Fortunately, professional teeth whitening at our Inman, SC dental office is an effective procedure that can quickly and affordably transform your smile. There is no other cosmetic dental treatment that delivers such dramatic results in just one office visit.
