    Have you ever hesitated to smile because you felt self-conscious about having discolored teeth? It is very easy to feel less confident in yourself when you're surrounded by people with beautiful smiles. You may even be tempted to avoid smiling at people but that can make you appear unfriendly and less approachable. 

    After all, your smile says a lot about you. It's not uncommon for people to make quick assessments about someone's level of friendliness and other aspects of their personality based on their smile.

    Don't let your lack luster smile hold you back! First impressions matter. Teeth whitening is one popular solution that can dramatically improve your smile. The whitening process uses dental grade bleach to break down stains and brighten your smile.

    Here you can find more information about what exactly can stain your teeth and several treatment options that can make your smile camera ready. 

    Common Causes of Teeth Discolorations

    There are certain foods and other factors that can stain your teeth and make them appear dingy over time.

    • Smoking - The tar and nicotine inside cigarettes and other tobacco products can change the color of your teeth
    • Age - Older patients may notice that their teeth aren't as bright due to their dental enamel getting thinner
    • Hygiene - Another common cause of stained or discolored teeth is poor dental hygiene 
    • Medication - Discolored teeth can be a side effect from different medications 
    • Drinks - Certain drinks like soda, coffee, tea and red wine can also easily stain the outer part of your teeth
