Tooth discoloration is quite inconvenient, especially because it can lower the self-esteem and self-confidence and take the attractiveness away from the smile. If you experience tooth discoloration and wish to eliminate it, then our dentist, Dr. Nina Nattiv, is happy to help you. Fortunately, she has the tips you need to whiten your teeth and prevent future tooth stains.
Tip No. 1: Determine the severity of your tooth discoloration. To do so, it’s best to schedule an appointment with your dentist. Your dentist will examine your smile and tell you how to whiten your chompers. Then, think about the lifestyle choices you make that might be causing the tooth stains, like eating or drinking foods and beverages that stain tooth enamel (if it can stain fabric, it can stain your teeth) or smoking. It’s best to change your habits if you want a bright smile now and in the future.
Tip No. 2: Start a whitening treatment. This treatment could be whitening toothpaste (which helps with minor stains), whitening strips (which helps with deeper stains), whitening trays (which helps with even deeper stains), or a professional whitening treatment (which can deal with all types of stains, including the most severe). If you keep up with these treatments, you can maintain a white smile.
