4 Factors That Affect the Whiteness of Your Teeth

Teeth Whitening Washington PA

We would all like to keep our pearly whites pearly and white, but teeth can lose their bright, youthful luster for many reasons. The good news is that KöR professional teeth whitening with Washington, PA dentist Dr. Robert Pruce can restore your bright smile and provide stunning, dramatic results. 

1. The Foods and Beverages You Consume

Consuming staining foods on a regular bases causes tooth discoloration. Some are more staining than others, and these include beverages like coffee, tea, colas, red wine, and foods like dark berries, curries, beets, and tomato sauce.

2. Your Oral Hygiene Habits 

If you don’t brush and floss routinely, plaque and food debris sits on your teeth and discolors them. You can’t have white teeth if you aren’t diligent about keeping them clean.

3. Using Tobacco Products

The bottom line is you can’t smoke and expect to have a bright smile. Using tobacco products – whether you smoke or chew – leaves ugly brown stains that settle on your teeth, and most of these can only be removed through professional teeth whitening. 

4. Taking Certain Medications

Some medications are well-known for causing intrinsic (inside the tooth) staining. Two examples are the antibiotics tetracycline and doxycycline. While most professional treatments won’t lift intrinsic stains, but KöR is a state-of-the-art approach to whitening that removes them. 

Call Pruce Dental to Learn How We Can Help

Dr. Pruce is proud to offer KöR teeth whitening in his Washington, PA dental office because it lifts deep stains from your teeth, and it is the only product that can eliminate stains left by certain antibiotics. And with periodic touchups at home, the results achieved with KöR are permanent.
