Teeth Whitening in Murfreesboro, TNOver time teeth can grow dull and discolored for a number of reasons. Blackman Grove Dental offers several teeth whitening options to brighten your smile.
Several things can stain and darken your teeth over time:
- Age. As the outermost enamel layer grows thin with age, the yellowish dentin underneath begins to show through.
- Food and drink. Things like coffee and tea tend to stain enamel over time.
- Smoking. Another good reason to stop smoking. Not only is tobacco use unhealthy for your mouth, esophagus, and lungs – tar and nicotine stain your teeth.
- Medications. Some medications, especially some antibiotics and chemotherapy drugs, can cause tooth discoloration. Children exposed to some antibiotics while their teeth were forming may have discoloration of their adult teeth.
