Do you have a perfectly bright smile? When you look at toothpaste commercial models, do you find yourself wishing that you can also have teeth as white and bright as theirs are? Teeth whitening treatments done in the dental clinic can improve the brightness of your teeth by a few shades, in a short period of time that can take less than an hour. You can immediately see the results of the teeth whitening treatment, but it is also important to think about what made your teeth discoloured in the first place – so you can avoid making the same mistake.
Do you have a fondness for coffee, tea, or red wine? If you do, then you now have the answer why you have teeth discolouration. These beverages can seriously stain your teeth, especially if you consume them excessively or regularly. The same goes for food that have intense colours, such as beets – they will also stain your teeth if consumed heavily and regularly.
A smoking habit will make your teeth turn yellow or dark. The nicotine stains that cigarette smoking leaves are some of the toughest stains to remove on the surface of your teeth. Dental problems such as a chipped or cracked tooth can also lead to darkening if not treated accordingly. Having your teeth whitened will take years off your appearance, as dark teeth are closely associated with an advanced age.
