How is your smile tainted?

There are many contributing factors when it comes to your teeth yellowing and becoming discolored. Here are a few reasons:

  • Drinking too much tea and coffee, and eating too many berries can also stain your teeth.
  • Not maintaining a healthy oral and dental regiment may contribute to plaque and tartar buildup.
  • Aging does play a factor because the dentin under the tooth enamel is yellow and is exposed over time.
  • Not eating healthy foods like apples scrapes away plaque and drinking enough water can help remove food debris from teeth.
  • Medications like certain antibiotics can stain teeth.
