Beware of Seasonal Treats That Stain Your Teeth

They call them pearly whites for a reason.

Your teeth are meant to be both strong and bright, but there are all sorts of reasons they may not stay that way throughout your life.

Some of those are out of your control, like genetics, certain medications, and aging.

Other causes, like your lifestyle and diet, can take a toll and dim your smile over time.

If what you consume is highly acidic and brightly colored, not only is your tooth enamel more vulnerable to erosion but your teeth can take on a darker tint.

That doesn’t mean you can’t prevent dental stains! Enjoy your favorite holiday treats, drinks, and cocktails in moderation, rinse your mouth with water afterwards, and keep up with your usual oral hygiene routine. 

You can also visit us for teeth whitening treatment! In just one appointment, we can dramatically lighten the color of your teeth by several shades. Take home one of our customized kits to maintain your results throughout 2024!

Or perhaps you’d like something more permanent? Consider custom veneers, which are stain-resistant shells that also hide other imperfections like gapped, chipped, or misshapen teeth!
