Everyone wants that sparkling smile that stands out in a crowd, right? According to a survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the most common response to the question, “What would you like to improve most about your smile?” was whiter and brighter teeth! Your smile is one of the first facial features one sees when looking at you. There are many benefits to having a whiter smile, including a greater confidence, and an impression of youth, success, warmth, and happiness.
Sometimes teeth don't look as white as we'd like them to look. There are many culprits to teeth staining, from your favorite foods and drinks to smoking to even aging! Genes also play a role in the color of your teeth, depending on the thickness and smoothness of your enamel. The thinner your enamel is, the more the color of dentin is visible. If you notice staining in your child's teeth, it could be a result of too much fluoride as their teeth are still developing.
