Prevent a Dingy Smile While Aging


Posted on 10/20/2016 by Dr. Leite
A hot cup of coffee that can stain teeth.You may have, from time to time, noticed that the teeth in some elderly people are dingy and discolored. You may even have noticed your own smile starting to show the signs of age. Fortunately, you are not inevitably destined to have a dingy smile. Here are some things to keep in mind to keep your smile fresh and beautiful.

Avoid Or Minimize Your Consumption Of Certain Foods And Drinks


It may be hard for you to believe because your teeth seem like impermeable bone, but the fact of the matter is that they can pick up pigment from certain foods and drinks; this will over time lead to staining that noticeably changes the color of your teeth.

Avoid smoking tobacco or drinking coffee, tea, and wine. If you must consume these beverages, make sure to rinse or brush your teeth after you are finished. Better yet, use a straw to drink them so they pass by your front teeth without making contact.

Use Preventive Treatments Such As Bleaching To Touch Up Your Smile


If you do notice your teeth starting to show their age, come see us and we can quickly and easily correct the situation. We can give your teeth a professional bleaching that will lighten their color by several shades. This treatment is fast, easy, and inexpensive. What's more, you will notice immediate results!

If the staining is only light, you may be able to purchase over the counter products such as whitening strips to use on your teeth between visits to our office. These are pretty simple to use and can, under the right circumstances, have great results.

If you have any questions about keeping your teeth looking their best, we are here to help! Contact our office today!
