Have you noticed changes in your appearance? Are your teeth not as white as they have been before, despite no changes in your hygiene routine?
What can you do about it?
Not many of us have been born with perfectly white teeth, as natural teeth are usually tinged with grey or yellow. However, if the shade of your teeth is getting darker, you want to understand why and what can you do to get back to a beautiful smile.
Our teeth have two layers – enamel, outer and whitish layer of the teeth; and yellowish tissue beneath, known as dentin. With age as the enamel layer becomes thinner, the yellowish color of dentin is more prominent. However, the environmental factors are more likely to change the color of your teeth, to more darker shades. Various food products and drinks such as tomato sauce, berries, wine and coffee contribute to teeth staining. Furthermore, habits such as smoking will dramatically change the appearance of your smile.
Teeth whitening in our Burlington dental practice can be very effective at removing these stains and restoring your smile to a bright white finish.
