It's natural for your teeth to darken over time. You may have a gradual change from white to off-white as you age. In many cases, teeth become dark or discolored because of food or beverage choices. Some examples of foods and drinks that discolor your teeth include:
Other considerations for why your teeth have changed colors are lifestyle choices, like smoking, or medicines you may take. Talk with Dr. Liao about what you can change in your daily routine to help your teeth keep their brightness.
Sunrise Dental offers a popular teeth-whitening system that can be used in the comfort and privacy of your own home. In your first teeth whitening visit, Dr. Liao will give you universal fitting trays so that you can begin the whitening process right away.
The new whitening trays and a powerful whitening solution are sent home with you. You'll fill the trays with the whitening solution and then wear them for around 60 minutes (two sessions for 30 minutes each) every day. If you have severe stains on your teeth or if your teeth are very dark, you may need to wear the whitening trays for longer periods or even overnight. Dr. Liao will create a custom regimen just for you.
As long as you take good care of your teeth after your teeth whitening regimen, you should enjoy a brighter smile for a long time. Avoid contact with the foods, beverages, or substances that caused your teeth to become dark or discolored for the best long-term results.
You may also want to consider a yearly teeth-whitening refresh to keep your smile at its best and brightest. Talk with Dr. Liao about how often you should be seen.
