Causes of Teeth Stains

Serving Greater Philadelphia, including Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, & Newtown Square.

Teeth whitening can help our Ardmore-area patients recover the bright, white, photogenic smile they once had. If you feel like your teeth are stained and attractive, if you’re just a little shy about showing them off in photos or other settings, Dr. Bellisario can help you with his advanced teeth whitening process.

Your teeth become stained and yellowed for a number of reasons, but it usually has to do with the enamel of your teeth becoming eroded.

There are a few causes of this erosion and staining. They include:

  • Smoking
  • Eating dark, acidic foods
  • Coffee, tea and sodas
  • Red wine
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Certain medications
  • Aging
  • Trauma

Some of these causes are quite avoidable. You can go a long way toward helping your teeth simply by quitting smoking, maintaining basic dental hygiene and keeping your consumption of certain foods and drinks to a relative minimum.

However, you can’t do anything about aging or most traumas, and if you have to take certain medications then you don’t have much choice. Fortunately, however, teeth whitening at Dr. Bellisario’s office can help.

If you’re an Ardmore, Pennsylvania-area resident considering teeth whitening options, please contact The Office of Dr. Bellisario, DDS today.
