WITH WHITE CLOTHES, SOMETIMES IT TAKES a little bleach and a little sunlight to bring them back to their beautiful brightness! The same goes for your smile!
Your teeth may not feel the same as a cotton t-shirt, but they ARE porous, and they absorb the food colors that you eat each day.
Daily Living Can Dull Your Smile
Drinks like coffee, red wine, and dark fruit juices tint your smile. Berries, brightly colored candy, even soy sauce and curries will stain teeth too. Pigmentation from things we consume every day gradually build up and cause us to have dull, stained teeth.
Is It Time To Freshen Up Your Smile?
The problem with these set-in stains is that they need more than elbow grease. Brushing and cleaning your teeth, however thorough a job you do, won’t bring back that beautiful white you used to have. And while over-the-counter tooth whiteners can help, the best way to get a dazzling, bright smile in a safe and healthy way is to come see a dentist.
