What Causes Your Teeth to Become Discoloured?
As time passes, your teeth come into contact with various fruits, beverages, and other elements that stain and discolor them. Regular brushing and flossing are everyday habits to reduce the blemishes on your teeth, and teeth whitening can effectively remove these stains and give you a brighter smile. If you wonder why your teeth have gotten darker over time, the answers come from your diet, medical health needs, and even the genes passed down in your family. Here are some common examples of what causes discolored teeth:
Your natural tooth color is typically inherited. People are born with lighter or darker teeth.
Certain foods and beverages like berries, coffee, tea, and soda can stain your teeth darker over time. Regular brushing and flossing can reduce the effects, but these consumable products gradually discolor your teeth.
Smoking or chewing tobacco exposes your teeth to the dark, sticky residue of tobacco. This residue clings to your teeth and stains them and removing the stains yourself can be difficult.
Antibiotics and other forms of medication can cause permanent staining on your teeth. Your daily oral hygiene regimen cannot remove this discoloration.

Your teeth have pits and grooves that trap pigments from food, drinks, tobacco, and other issues like trauma and thinning enamel, all of which can lead to discolored teeth. Fashion District Dental offers the Pola Advanced Tooth Whitening System for in-office or at-home teeth whitening to remove the stains and whiten your teeth far better than brushing and flossing can ever accomplish. We use a medical strength whitening agent to penetrate your enamel and lift the pigments. This removes the staining and restores your teeth to their natural shade. The bleaching agent we use enhances the results, brightening your teeth to a whiter shade. If you choose in-office whitening, we can typically complete the treatment in one appointment.
There are a few things to keep in mind before you start whitening your teeth:
- You must have good oral health. We cannot whiten your teeth if you have gum disease, tooth decay, or other oral health issues. These problems need to be resolved before starting the whitening treatment.
- Crowns, fillings, inlays, onlays, and other dental restorations do not whiten with treatment as your natural teeth do. We can discuss replacement options for your restorations to give you an even smile.
- We strongly recommend getting a professional cleaning before you whiten your teeth. A cleaning will get rid of plaque and tartar buildup, letting your tooth surfaces whiten more easily and evenly.
What Are the Benefits of Our Teeth Whitening Services?
Fashion District Dental proudly offers teeth whitening to patients as one of our dental services for many reasons. It has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the dental industry, and it comes with benefits such as:
Brighter, more beautiful teeth is an excellent way to gain confidence in your smile and appearance. If you have a big date, reunion, or wedding to attend, teeth whitening can help you feel great about your esthetics so that you can exude pride and warmth.
Trying to get a new job or promotion? Your appearance matters and a healthy-looking smile makes you confident, friendly, and successful.
Removing the stains and discoloration from your smile can take years off your appearance. As we age, our teeth can look less vibrant, and medications, smoking, and diet can age your teeth. You look more youthful with brighter teeth.
