Will Cleanings and Prevention Make My Teeth Whiter?
Actually, they can! Plaque makes your teeth look dingy, and it stains, too. Remove the plaque regularly, and your teeth will look shiny, clean, and whiter.
Of course, other lifestyle factors play an important role in whether you can successfully prevent enamel stains. Your teeth are more likely to stain if you:
- Eat/drink dark foods/beverages like berries, cola, coffee, tea, and wine
- Smoke or chew (tobacco or marijuana)
- Eat acidic foods
Other factors include:
- Certain diseases/conditions
If you are concerned about staining, talk to your dentist about ways to whiten your teeth in addition to cleanings and prevention in Downey.
