Your smile can say a lot about you.

Acidic foods and beverages, such as certain fruits and juices, will wear away the enamel of teeth over time, reducing their original white appearance and slowly revealing the grey or yellow matter underneath.

Things like coffee, black tea, red wine, soy sauce, and sodas in particular will leave unsightly dark stains on the teeth. Whitening methods are available, but before you visit your local clinic specialising in cosmetic dentistry, you should make note of the condition of your teeth. In-office whitening solutions are much stronger than those available for at-home use. This is because your dentist … Continue Reading

You might be wondering why you should go to a dentist when there are many teeth whitening solutions that can be purchased over the counter and applied at home. It’s true, you don’t have to go see a dentist but doing it yourself is a lot more work and less effective.
