Has Your Morning Coffee Habit Affected Your Smile?

Coffee is an important pick-me-up for a large number of Americans. If you struggle to start your day, you may feel that your morning is not complete until you down your first cup! Unfortunately, that boost in energy can also cause problems for your smile. The particles coffee leaves in your teeth can start to make them look discolored. As time passes, that accumulation can lead to distracting, frustrating stains. The professional whitening treatment you receive from your dentist can allow you to combat those stains, and once again show off a bright, white smile.

Undergoing A Professional Whitening Treatment

If you elect to undergo a Zoom! whitening treatment, a one hour appointment at your dentist’s office may be all that stands between you and your bright smile. This procedure involves a curing light to stimulate the whitening gels, providing you with results in short order. If you would prefer to take care of your teeth stains at home, you can also acquire professional whitening gels, and a special oral tray to evenly distribute those gels, from your dentist. An at-home kit can also provide you an opportunity to address any stains that develop again after your initial treatment.

Discoloration Is About More Than Just Teeth Stains

Your discoloration may not be due to your coffee habit. You might need an a different cosmetic dental treatment due to intrinsic discoloration. Intrinsic discoloration is caused by internal issues, meaning the source of discoloration is not accessible with whitening gels. To combat this problem, many patients will have porcelain veneers placed on their teeth, to hide discoloration.
