Everyone prefers white teeth over teeth that are yellowing or stained. Most of these people are aware of tooth whitening products they can buy over the counter as part of toothpaste or whitening strips. And people will spend a lot of money on these products to get their teeth white. However, many people may wonder if they’re candidates for tooth whitening.
So, yes, you are a candidate for tooth whitening. You’re a candidate if you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, or think they’re too yellow and dingy and it’s making you self-conscious. The thing is many of the foods and beverages we consume every day are some of the worst offenders. The same goes for certain lifestyle choices.
Some of the things that will stain your teeth the most are:
- Red wine
- Black tea
- Tobacco products
Other things that stain teeth are tetracycline and minerals in the water.
Short of giving up eating and drinking, there is no way to keep your teeth white all the time. Brushing and flossing every day after you eat are important, but the most important thing you can do to keep your teeth white is come into Forestream Dental for your biannual cleaning.
