Foods and drinks that are dark in color, such as coffee, red wine, and tomato sauce, can cause yellow or brown stains on your teeth. Tobacco products such as cigarettes and chewing tobacco can also cause tooth stains and discoloration. In addition, the body’s natural aging process causes the enamel to wear away and expose the darker dentin layer. This, in turn, can make the teeth appear discolored and stained.
Professional teeth whitening treatments use powerful bleaching agents to whiten the color of the teeth and eliminate even the most stubborn teeth stains. At Blue Sage Dental, our dentist offers patients both in-office and at-home treatment options that use highly concentrated bleaching agents to provide outstanding results.
