Teeth come in many shades and can change color from a variety of causes.
As the tooth enamel develops, the color can be affected by many factors, says Academy of General Dentistry spokesperson Howard S. Glazer, DDS, FAGD.
Food and drink, illness, injury, heredity or environmental factors can discolor teeth.
But you don’t have to live with a dull smile. With today’s techniques and materials, we can change the color of a patient’s teeth to provide a more healthy, youthful appearance.
Professional teeth whitening products can improve enamel color in many instances, although severe discoloration may require bonding procedures for good cosmetic results.
