One of the most common cosmetic concerns that we hear at our Santa Rosa Beach dental offices is worry over dull, discolored, “yellowing” teeth. Fortunately, this is also one of the simplest problems to fix.
Yellowing can be attributed to a number of factors. Staining foods and drinks (like red wine, coffee, chocolate, and curry) are common culprits, and so are tobacco products and home care routines that need improvement. Many people, however, find that their teeth simply become discolored as they age. This is because your enamel tends to become thinner, allowing the yellowish dentin (the layer beneath your enamel) to show through. Genetics also come into play, determining the thickness of your enamel and the shade of your dentin.
You don’t have to put up with it, though. As part of our cosmetic dentistry treatments at Seacrest Dental, we offer professional one-visit whitening treatments as well as at-home teeth bleaching to get your teeth naturally white again and return the sparkle to your smile.
