Over time, teeth may lose their bright white colour. This is due to natural aging, tobacco use, side effects of certain medication, or staining food or drink. At the microscopic level tooth enamel is porous, which means that stains can settle deeper than we’re able to clean by simply brushing or during routine cleanings. While there is nothing wrong health-wise with the yellowed stains, often patients will ask about our whitening options to improve the beauty of their smile.
If you’re concerned about the colour of your teeth, we’d be more than happy to discuss your available options for whitening.
