With graduations, wedding, vacations and numerous other gatherings on the calendar, you can bet you’ll be in loads of pictures this summer. And what will be in every one of those pictures with you? Your smile. To make sure yours is camera ready, now is the time for teeth whitening in Clinton Township. Read on to learn about teeth staining and discoloration and what your dentist can do to help.
Why Do My Teeth Need Whitening?
Teeth are as much a part of the aging process as any other part of the body. Plus, there are other things that can cause your teeth to become stained and discolored.
For example, consider the foods and drinks you enjoy. For instance, that morning cup of coffee or tea can leave noticeable discoloration. The enamel that covers the visible surface of each tooth is not smooth; there are microscopic cracks and ridges that can trap the molecules of pigment from your coffee or tea. Over time, this leads to a yellowed smile. Add a bowl of spaghetti and tomato sauce, maybe a glass of wine and over the years there can be quite an accumulation of stains.
Other causes of teeth staining and discoloration are:
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
- Certain medications such as tetracycline or some chemotherapy drugs
- Bruxism, which can darken the biting surfaces of your teeth
- Cracks in your teeth that hide microscopic particles of food
- An injury that caused bleeding within a tooth
