If your discolored teeth are casting a dark cloud on your confidence, discover the cause of this staining and the best ways to whiten your smile.

  1. Dark Foods can Leave a Dark Mark On Teeth

Dental care experts say that many dark-colored foods can easily stain your smile, such as blueberries, blackberries, beets, and tomato sauce.

  1. Darker Drinks can Make you Thirst for Whiter Teeth

Darker drinks can leave your teeth dark and discolored. Many of these drinks may be part of your daily diet, such as coffee, tea, cola, and wine. Your dentist in Philadelphia will advise you to cut back on these drinks, or at least sip them through a straw and rinse your mouth with water after having them.

  1. Tobacco Makes Whiteness Go up in Smoke

If you smoke or chew tobacco, it’s likely you’ll end up with gray or yellow teeth. According to dental care experts, sometimes these stains cannot be removed with any treatment for stained teeth.

  1. Good Oral Hygiene is a Bright Idea

By preventing stains with proper dental care, you won’t need to worry about treatment for stained teeth. Be sure to brush and floss every day, as well as visit a dentist in Philadelphia for regular check-ups and cleanings.

  1. Professional Whitening can Brighten your Life and Smile

The fastest, easiest, and most dramatic treatment for stained teeth is professional tooth whitening. Usually, a dentist can significantly whiten stained teeth in less than an hour. If your dentist doesn’t offer this treatment, find a dentist in Philadelphia who specializes in whitening and say goodbye to stains.
