Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment option for people who want a bright and healthy looking smile and it is very effective in most cases. There are some things that we can do however, to prevent our teeth from discoloration. Some of those things involve lifestyle options and the choices we make about what we eat and drink.
A lot of us enjoy a glass of wine with dinner or just to relax after a long day but even white wine can stain our teeth. The acidic content in all wines is what eats away at tooth enamel and exposes the layer of dentin that lies beneath causing its yellowish color to show through.
Fruit is a good source of many of the vitamins that promote nutritional balance in our diet. Unfortunately the intensity of the color in many of the seasonal berries that we love to enjoy have the capacity to stain our teeth. Blueberries, blackberries and cranberries and their by-products, are some of the worst offenders.
As we age so does the dental work that we have had done over the years. An old filling for instance, can darken so much that the appearance of the restored tooth is adversely affected. The best way to keep this from happening is to visit your dentist regularly so that he can repair or restore fillings in a timely manner.
