Professional teeth whitening has become one of the most requested dental services over the last two decades. This cosmetic procedure removes stains or discoloration from teeth to give a whiter smile. Teeth whitening options come in various forms. You can use store-bought whitening products, like whitening gels or strips, or you can choose professional teeth whitening in our Monroe dentist office.
What are the causes of discolored teeth?
Many things can cause teeth discoloration. Caffeine and tobacco are some of the main culprits behind tooth discoloration. Also, consuming certain foods and beverages like blueberries can change the color of your teeth.
Poor oral hygiene is usually an issue that leads to discoloration in most cases. Brushing decreases plaque buildup that results in teeth yellowing. If you typically have a natural yellowish tint to your teeth, this is a clear sign of plaque buildup.
