Why Are My Teeth Not White, And How Can I Improve Them?

There can be a number of reasons that you currently do not have white teeth. Some of these reasons may be out of your control, but some might also be in your control. Some natural and necessary things can cause your teeth’s enamel to become discolored, including aging, genetics, injuries, certain antibiotics, and receiving too much fluoride while the teeth are still developing. There are certain things within your control that can prevent discoloration of enamel, which includes abstaining from staining. You can stain your teeth from eating and drinking certain foods and drinks, such as coffee, red wine, berries, colas, teas, and sauces. Excessive intake of these types of products or dyes can leave long-term staining on tooth enamel. Another way to prevent the discoloration of teeth is abstaining from tobacco use. Using cigarettes, cigars, or smokeless tobacco can have long-term ramifications on your teeth. To begin the journey to a brighter, whiter smile, call Dr. Kevin Ward! As Berkeley County’s premier dentist, Dr. Ward can suggest home procedures, as well as recommending proper whitening toothpaste and good oral hygiene practices.
