Teeth Whitening in Rapid City, SD
Why Do My Teeth Look Stained and Dull?
Many factors contribute to darkening or discoloration of teeth. Some are related to health and medications, and some are related to lifestyle choices.
- As you age, your teeth naturally appear duller and more yellow than white. Genetically, some people simply have whiter teeth than others. These natural occurrences cannot be changed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about them.
- Coffee, tea, wine, cola, and other fruits and vegetables can stain teeth. The more you eat and drink these beverages and foods the more likely your teeth are to appear stained.
- A huge offender for staining teeth is tobacco. Whether you smoke or chew tobacco, you are contributing to yellow/brown stains on your teeth. Poor dental hygiene exacerbates the effects.
