Are you ever worried about the color of your teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. In fact, did you know that Americans spend $1.4 billion dollars every year on home whitening kits for their teeth? If you’re unhappy with the color of your smile, we recommend giving us a call—but wouldn’t it be nice to avoid the need for a whitening altogether? Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to prevent discolored teeth.

As you probably know, a few external factors can cause discoloration. For example, tobacco can adversely affect the color of your teeth, whether you chew, use a pipe, or smoke cigarettes. Some beverages, such as cola, tea, or coffee, can also stain your teeth. Finally, certain medications have been known to darken teeth.

The color of your teeth color can also be determined by things you can’t control. In fact, did you know aging and genetics can be responsible for the color of your teeth? Fortunately, you have a few whitening options. Of course, our team can help. After inspecting your teeth, we’ll see that your needs are met and will develop a whitening plan specifically for you.

As you know, if your teeth don’t have the luster you would like, you can visit our dentist. You probably also know that an at-home whitening kit could meet your needs. However, if you choose at-home whitening, please be careful. These kits can have unforeseen complications if you have issues such as cavities or sensitive gums. Conversely, a professional whitening can help you attain a beautiful, attractive smile, safely.
