It is amazing how much a smile can change just by changing the color of your teeth. A white, clean smile is something equally appreciated by men and women. A white bright smile can help you feel your best, increasing your self-confidence, and helping you to live your best life.
Dr. Marvin Kaplan offers professional cosmetic teeth whitening solutions from the comfort of our Cincinnati, OH cosmetic dentist office. We can help you achieve a whiter, bright smile with whitening or bleaching your teeth, or by applying porcelain laminate veneers for a more long-lasting solution.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
- Diet: A diet high in dark-colored acidic beverages and food can cause discoloration of your teeth. Coffee, tea, and red wine are common culprits of causing discoloration of teeth. Reducing your consumption of these beverages can help keep your teeth whiter. If you do consume these substances be sure to drink them quickly, do not sip on them throughout the day and try to brush after consumption.
- Damage: Trauma or damage to a tooth can cause dark brown spots to develop on the tooth. Dark spots are visually unappealing and can detract from the beauty o your natural smile. Generally resistant to teeth whitening treatments, dark spots can be corrected using dental bonding or custom porcelain veneers.
- Deterioration: Over time the enamel of your teeth naturally begins to thin and wear leaving the underlayer of dentin exposed. Dentin is naturally yellow in color and can cause your smile to look aged. Professional teeth whitening and bleaching kits can help to improve the color of your smile impacted by enamel wear.
- Development: During tooth development teeth are susceptible to developing bright white spots on the surface. Bright white spots are most commonly caused by exposure to too much fluoride during development.
