Discoloration of Teeth
Teeth become dull, discolored and lose their bright, white sparkle.
Having discoloration of teeth is not only unsightly but can also affect your self esteem.
Having poor oral hygiene, food and drinks that stain your teeth like tea, coffee, berries, turmeric, red wine and smoking can cause teeth discoloration.
Discoloration of teeth can be due to higher than required fluoride content in your diet or medications like tetracycline or due to any genetic disorder or trauma or it might be age related.
You can easily remove superficial stains by regular maintenance of your oral hygiene like brushing and flossing twice a day; if it’s severe then your dental care provider can remove it in the dental office.
If those stains are imbedded inside the tooth your dentist might advise you for bleaching or veneers or crowns depending on the case.
Regardless of the type of discoloration you have its preferable to visit your dentist at Smile Dental to root out the cause and follow proper treatment plan.
