Your teeth have tiny and porous mineral crystals that make up the tooth enamel layer, and the porous texture can easily trap staining particles when you consume dark foods and drinks, causing tooth stains. To help your teeth whitening treatment last longer, we advise that you avoid substances that result in tooth stains.
Dr. Anmar Obaidi can help you achieve your dream smile and reduce the appearance of dark, discolored teeth by providing professional teeth whitening treatment to brighten tooth color. Teeth whitening can greatly enhance your smile, but if you consume a lot of staining agents, your new smile may not last very long.
Chocolate, tomato sauce and dark berries are common foods that stain teeth. We encourage you to limit these foods in your diet and further protect your tooth color by brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste every day.
Cola drinks, tea and coffee also darken teeth because these beverages are highly concentrated in staining particles. If you have a hankering for any of these beverages, use a straw to protect your teeth.
If you often use tobacco, your teeth can develop deep stains from the chemicals and tar in the products. Ask your physician about a cessation program to help you protect your tooth color and your health.
