Why do Teeth Darken?

Dentist Serving Buffalo, Lancaster, Orchard Park, New York

Age, lifestyle choices, medications and genetics can all combine to cause teeth discoloration.

If you have stained or discolored teeth, Buffalo, New York, cosmetic dentist Dr. Larry Evola and the team at Forestream Dental offer teeth whitening options to help restore your vibrant, healthy looking smile.

Through professional, in-office teeth whitening treatment, we can reduce discoloration caused by factors including:

  • Smoking
  • Consumption of beverages such as fruit juice, cola, coffee, tea and wine
  • Consumption of dark-colored foods
  • Plaque and tartar deposits
  • Some water mineralization

We also offer the professional-grade Opalescence take-home teeth-whitening kits to help you maintain your bright smile.

If you suffer from severe internal staining caused by injury to a tooth or teeth, or by the use the antibiotic tetracycline, teeth whitening treatment may not be effective. In these cases, Dr. Evola may recommend another solution such as dental bonding or porcelain veneers, which are external treatments designed to provide you with a white, natural-looking smile.

If you would like to learn more about your teeth whitening options, please contact Forestream Dental to schedule your consultation with Buffalo cosmetic dentist Dr. Larry Evola. We also welcome patients from the Amherst, Lancaster and Orchard Park, New York, areas.
