A Brighter Outlook for Stained Teeth


Kiss discolored teeth good-bye! Discover the factors behind the darkness and the fixes for a brighter smile.

The True Causes of Tooth Discoloration

Do you feel that stained teeth spoil your smile? Many factors can cause dental darkness, including all of the following:

  • Improper oral hygiene habits prevent people from removing the plaque and particles that can badly discolor teeth.
  • Darker foods and drinks can leave teeth with severe stains, such as coffee, tea, red wine, cola, and darker fruits and vegetables.
  • Age tends to naturally darken teeth since tooth enamel erodes over time, exposing the tooth’s lower layer of darker dentin.
  • Heredity affects how likely a person is to experience tooth discoloration.
  • Facial trauma can lead to dental damage that darkens a tooth.
  • Some medications, antibiotics, and antihistamines have the unfortunate side effect of tooth discoloration.
  • Tobacco not only causes discoloration of teeth, but also oral cancer and higher risk of tooth decay.

Hope and Help for the Discoloration of Teeth

If darker teeth are bringing you down, lighten up with these treatments for lightening dental stains. Depending on your case, you can brighten your stained teeth with many different options, such as:

  • Professional, in-office tooth whitening
  • Bonding
  • Veneers
  • Dental crowns

Ask your dentist which options are right for you and get a whiter, brighter smile.
