Are you ever worried about the color of your teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. In fact, did you know that Americans spend $1.4 billion dollars every year on home whitening kits? If you’re unhappy with the color of your smile, we recommend giving us a call—but wouldn’t it be nice to avoid the need for a whitening altogether? Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to prevent discolored teeth.

You probably know that there are several factors that can contribute to the color of your teeth. Unfortunately, a few of these factors can lead to yellowing. The good news is that these factors can also be stopped, meaning your teeth will be less likely to get discolored. For instance, if you smoke, chew tobacco, smoke from a pipe, or drink coffee, soda, and certain teas, your teeth could be discolored.

The color of your teeth color can also be determined by things you can’t control. In fact, did you know aging and genetics can be responsible for the color of your teeth? Fortunately, you have a few whitening options. Of course, our team can help. After inspecting your teeth, we’ll see that your needs are met and will develop a whitening plan specifically for you.

While a whitening kit may be more affordable, did you know that a professional whitening will yield results much more quickly. A professional whitening treatment is also safer than a home treatment. Sadly, at-home treatments may make your teeth more sensitive and cause permanent damage to your enamel. Also, since at-home kits are not made specifically with you in mind, your gums are more likely to be irritated.
