Why Do Teeth Get Discolored?
Before we jump into solutions, it’s worth understanding the “why” behind those pesky stains:
- Food & Drinks: Coffee, wine, and certain berries can leave a mark on our teeth over time.
- Tobacco: Smoking or chewing tobacco? They’re leading culprits in teeth discoloration.
- Aging: With age, our enamel thins, leading to a yellower appearance.
- Medications: Certain drugs can affect tooth color, making them darker.

Absolutely! When done under the guidance of a professional dentist like Dr. Enos, teeth whitening is both safe and effective. It’s all about choosing the right products and methods suited to your unique dental needs.
