No matter what age you are, there is always time to get yourself a new smile. Even in your later years there are still plenty of ways to keep up with your mind and body including your outer appearance. So why not give yourself a smile makeover? Over time, our natural teeth begin to lose their shine and can become discolored. Foods, beverages and sometimes unhealthy habits can contribute to this occurrence and at a faster rate. Here are some useful tips you should know when it comes to this happening, and things you can do to reverse the process.
Likely Causes of discoloration:
Beverages. Coffee, tea, wine and sugary sodas can all take part in changing the color of your teeth. Unfortunately, a segment of our population rely on coffee to get them going in the morning, wine to help them relax and let loose, and sugary sodas to satisfy that annoying sugar tooth. But what they don't realize is how much of an impact these beverages take on their oral appearance and health.
Smoking. The nicotine and tar that is found in tobacco are what causes discoloration and yellowing of the teeth. Along with doing this, smoking tobacco can lead to gum disease, bad breath and certain types of cancers.
Medicine. Over the years, studies have proven that antibiotics can cause stained and discolored teeth. Certain chemicals such as beta-lactam and tetracycline in some antibiotics are a culprits for your teeth appearing yellow or brown.
What consists of a "Smile Makeover"?
There are a few different ways to complete a make-over for your smile. Some of them including: veneers, bonding and over-the-counter whitening treatments depending on exactly what you need to get done. A few reasons for a "smile makeover" would include: Discolored teeth, gapped teeth, chips or cracks in your teeth and disproportionate teeth size. You can determine which one of these would work best for you by contacting Johnson Family Dentistry.
