As we get older our teeth get darker.   It is also caused by the foods we eat and drink, and by other habits such as smoking. Foods and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine and other foods that have strong colors can have an effect on the overall color of our teeth. Shades of teeth vary form person to person. Some people naturally have a more grey shade of teeth. Other people have white spots on their teeth. White spots can be an early tooth decay or illness when the tooth was forming. Some antibiotics may also cause our teeth to darken.

‘Calculus’ or tartar can also affect the color of your teeth. Some people may have staining under the enamel surface or tiny cracks can appear in the teeth which take up stain.

There are many methods available, such as brushing, bleaching strips, bleaching pen, bleaching gel, and laser bleaching…. wikipedia

How long will my teeth stay whiter? 

The effects of whitening are thought to last up to three years. However, this will vary from person to person. The effect is less likely to last as long if you smoke, or eat or drink products that can stain your teeth.

Whether you use an at-home tooth-whitening system, or have your teeth bleached by a dentist, you can help maintain the results by flossing and brushing daily. Also, avoid acidic and tannin-rich foods and beverages such as:

Black teas and coffee

White and red wine

Sports drinks

Carbonated beverages (dark and light-colored sodas)

Berries and other strongly-colored foods

Sauces (soy, tomato, curries)

Some people may find that their teeth become sensitive to cold during or after the treatment. Others may have discomfort in the gums, a sore throat or white patches on the gum line. These symptoms are usually temporary and should disappear within a few days of the treatment finishing.
