Coffee, Tea, And Other Dark Liquids Can Stain Your Smile

It can sometimes feel almost too easy to come up with a reason to enjoy a little caffeine boost. Some coffee in the morning can help you start your work day, and another cup in the afternoon can help you finish strong. Unfortunately, while coffee can do great things for our productivity, it can be trouble for your smile. Coffee, as well as other dark liquid beverages like tea, red wine, and soft drinks, are capable of leaving staining agents behind in your enamel. To remedy this issue, you can discuss a professional whitening treatment with your dentist.

Using A Professional Whitening Treatment Instead Of Over The Counter Products

In the course of a single office visit, your dentist can apply a potent whitening gel to your teeth, and speed up the effects of that gel with a special light. While over the counter whitening agents can help with surface stains, a professional treatment will help you make more significant improvements. To ensure that your appearance continues to benefit from this process, your dentist can offer take-home whitening gels, and a special oral tray that will help you apply the substance evenly. By performing touch-ups when needed, you can prolong the value of your whitening procedure.

What Can Be Done About Intrinsic Discoloration?

A key to seeing real smile improvements is finding the right cosmetic dental treatment. A whitening treatment can be great for stains left behind by coffee, tea, and other beverages, but less effective against intrinsic discoloration. Intrinsic discoloration refers to any internal problem that changes the color of your smile. To combat this, your dentist can offer porcelain veneers to make your smile appear brighter, and better looking.
