Teeth Whitening | Davenport IA

A brilliant smile is more than aesthetics; it’s the foundation of the first impression you make. Ensure that your teeth are bright with professional teeth whitening.

Do you like what your dull or discolored teeth say about you?

According to a revealing study from a few years ago, a poor smile can make a person appear as much as 13 years older than their true age. If that info wasn’t compelling enough, another survey found that the first thing an individual notices about someone they are meeting for the first time is the quality of their smile. So, to recap, if your smile has issues, strangers will notice and they will make negative assumptions about you over it.

What is making my teeth darken?

Unfortunately, as Dr. Jolene Dague points out, it’s common for people’s teeth to grow dim over time because we encounter smile-dulling factors every day. Let’s look at a sampling of them.

  • Tobacco use can certainly discolor teeth.
  • Poor dental hygiene means stain-producing substances aren’t adequately removed.
  • Diseases can bring a myriad of problems. Maladies that directly affect the teeth can lead to discoloration, but so can indirect factors, head and neck radiation and chemotherapy, for example. Some infections in pregnant mothers can even cause tooth discoloration in their infants by affecting enamel development.
  • Medications are another wide-ranging problem. Common antibiotics tetracycline and doxycycline are known to discolor teeth when given to children whose teeth are still developing (before age 8). Mouthwashes that contain chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride can stain teeth. Other possible culprits include antihistamines (like Benadryl), antipsychotic drugs and meds for high blood pressure.
  • Advancing age goes hand-in-hand with the enamel on your teeth wearing away, revealing the natural yellow color of dentin.
  • Genetics can play a part, since some people have naturally brighter or thicker enamel than others.
  • Trauma is a major concern when it involves damage to the enamel.
