You don’t just wake up one day and suddenly have stained teeth. It occurs over time, and there are some typical reasons why it happens. What is of the greatest importance is being aware of the causes, so you can avoid them if at all possible. But once your teeth are already stained, you need our Staten Island teeth whitening to get them back to their natural state. At the dental practice of Ralph Tarantino, D.M.D., we are pleased to have a system that allows you to get your teeth brighter in the comfort of your home without any effort on your part other than to make two visits to our office.
The most notorious culprit when it comes to teeth stains is tobacco. Now don’t get us wrong. We’re not telling you to quit. We’re simply pointing out that smoking (and vaping) turn your teeth yellow or maybe even brown with heavier use. Pretty much every other cause is secondary in its effects to that of tobacco, but that doesn’t mean they don’t contribute greatly. For example, coffee and tea are the morning beverage of choice for millions. And later in the day, you may like to indulge in cola or wine, or both. They all share on trait, which is that they are known to stain teeth. The same is true of foods that range from berries to soy sauce; from curry to hard candy. Even some prescription medication may stain your teeth. Tetracycline is a good example. Our Staten Island teeth whitening works in spite of all of the above, and will even counteract the effects of over-fluoridation during early tooth development, or what is called fluorosis.
