There are many different reasons your teeth can become discolored, or yellow. Sometimes a yellowing of teeth can be hereditary, while often times they become yellow as a result of our hygiene habits. Here is a list of several items that can add to the discoloration of your teeth that we make our patients aware of:
- Coffee, tea, wine, colas
- Foods with heavy dyes
- Fruits including blueberries, grapes, and pomegranates
- Cigarette smoking and chewing tobacco
- Medications such as minocycline (tetracycline), antihistamines, blood pressure medications, etc.
As a Prevention Dental patient, choose from convenient in-office teeth whitening or take-home trays. Both systems work equally well, so in a matter of minutes or days, you can enjoy a brighter smile.
Our in-office teeth whitening system give you dramatic results in just one hour! Simply visit our Boise office and we’ll apply a light-activated gel to your teeth.
If you prefer, choose take-home trays or teeth whitening strips to wear at your leisure. You’ll notice the system working after just a few uses, but the real result will appear after a few weeks of consistent daily use. Our Boise dental office serves patients from Meridian, Eagle, and the surrounding areas with modern cosmetic dentistry that looks great and lasts for years.
