As you age, your teeth naturally lose their whiteness and shine of the youth. But don’t worry. Come in for a quick teeth whitening visit at High Street Dental and you can get your beautiful white smile back.
Teeth lose their whiteness and sheen with age because of the natural erosion of dental enamel. As the years go by, enamel gets worn out and the thinner enamel reveals the yellow dentin underneath. This is what causes the teeth to appear dull and yellow.
Any trauma or injury to the tooth may also cause it to change colour. Certain types of medication are also known to affect teeth colour.
Some strongly coloured food items like coffee, wine etc. may stain teeth if consumed regularly. Of course smoking is a major reason for teeth discoloration; nicotine can form tough stains on the teeth that you cannot remove through normal brushing and cleaning.
