The Need to Whiten Your Teeth

white_teeth_perfectJust like different people have different skin and hair color, the color of teeth also varies from person to person. The teeth of some people may be more yellow than others, while a few may have teeth that have acquired a yellow tinge due to aging. According to Dr. LaFrom – one of the leading dentists in Cupertino, there are many factors that can affect your natural tooth color. Some of the common factors are the build up of tartar deposits and plaque, internal discoloration or surface stains caused by aging, intake of an excessive amount of fluoride in the initial stages of tooth formation, treating the teeth with antibiotic tetracycline when the person was a baby, and excessive consumption of tea, coffee, red wine, colas or tobacco. If these situations sound familiar, you may opt for a teeth whitening session.

A word of caution though: Ensure that you consult with your dentist prior to opting for any whitening procedure, as only he or she can assess properly if a particular treatment would be suitable for you or not.

If you are still unsure about what to do, perhaps the words of Gloria   could help you decide: “Dr. LaFrom and everyone on the staff is very professional and always makes you feel comfortable. It’s impressive the way they are always staying on top of new techniques and equipment in the field of dentistry to continually improve the client’s experience.”
