What you eat and drink has a big impact on the whiteness of your teeth. Staining comes from beverages such as coffee, tea, carbonated sodas, or wine. Tobacco, berries, strongly colored foods, and sometimes medications can discolor teeth as well. It’s important to maintain good oral care by brushing, flossing, and rinsing to help fight plaque, making your teeth less likely to stain.
Is Whitening For You?
Not all foods cause staining to your teeth. Foods like apples, carrots, celery, cauliflower, and hard cheeses help to scrub your teeth and produce saliva that counteracts acid and cleans your mouth. If you maintain great oral care, see a dentist for regular cleanings, and still want a whitening boost, dental whitening may be a good option for you.
Brighten Your Smile
Whitening procedures are meant to help remove staining or discoloration on teeth. At Polished – a dental studio, we can whiten your smile in one of two ways. We offer custom fit whitening trays and also laser whitening treatments. Results can vary depending on the initial color of your teeth. Brown, grey, and purple shades do not respond well to whitening treatments; however, yellow shades do respond well and you can expect to brighten your teeth 3-8 shades.
