If you have yellowed, stained, or otherwise discolored teeth, whitening can make your smile, and your overall image, appear years younger. From whitening toothpaste to professionally whitened teeth, modern teeth bleaching systems are extremely popular. As a reminder to keep your smile bright, you can rely on teeth whitening programs, but you might also consider limiting your intake of the worst discoloring foods and beverages, including:
- Balsamic vinegar
- Tea & Black coffee
- Tomato sauce
- Cranberry juice
- Red wine
Interestingly enough, eating strawberries are actually good for whitening teeth, so eat plenty and enjoy!
Some stains, like those caused by tetracycline medications and fluorosis, are not greatly reduced by even the strongest teeth whitening products. For permanently stained teeth, we sometimes recommend cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers. These cosmetic dentistry procedures cover stains while creating a natural and stain-resistant smile. “Before and After” photos of Jackson DDS Dental Design Studio patients who have undergone porcelain veneer smile makeovers can be viewed at Before and After – Jackson DDS.
