There are times when it’s hard to protect our teeth from getting stained or discolored but the good thing is that there’s proven way to restore the beauty of your teeth and make them look brighter and whiter once again.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure performed today, simply because this is relatively easy and simple to perform and it can immediately show visible results. Teeth whitening is the process by which whitening or bleaching agents are used to remove the molecules that cause discoloration and thereby whitening the shade of your teeth.
There are various reasons behind teeth discoloration and one of them is your genes. It is natural for you to inherit the characteristics of your parents so your physical attributes depend a lot on them. The food and beverages you eat and drink also play a significant role in the discoloration of your teeth especially when you frequently eat the ones that are dark colored like wine, soda and coffee. Cigarette and tobacco smoking are also major reasons behind teeth discoloration.
Poor oral hygiene can also increase your risk of discoloration because you will not be able to effectively remove stubborn stains from your teeth. Inadequate brushing and flossing will only allow plaque to stay longer on the surfaces of your teeth and in the spaces between. Certain antibiotics and medications administered during the development of a child’s teeth can also result in teeth discoloration.
