Teeth Whitening Solutions in Lafayette, LA
why do my teeth look yellow?
Certain drinks, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, and foods, such as tomato sauce, blueberries, and balsamic vinegar, leave trace stains on your tooth enamel. Over the years, these stains accumulate and leave your teeth looking dull and yellowish. Even with regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings, aging teeth generally do not look as bright as healthy young enamel.

Only three things are required to receive treatment. Patients have to be at least 16 years old, in overall good health, and should not be pregnant or nursing. As with any healthcare treatment, results may vary from patient to patient.
options for severe stains
Stains that accumulate on the outer surfaces of your teeth are called extrinsic stains and, for the most part, can be easily removed using professional at-home whitening. Come severe stains, especially those that originate from within the tooth, do not respond to at-home whitening systems. For patients with severely discolored teeth resulting from tetracycline, root canal therapy, or excess exposure to fluoride, Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri DDS recommends dental bonding or porcelain veneers.
