You take good care of your smile with daily brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums looking their best. At our practice located
in Houston, Texas, we have been helping our patients achieve healthier smiles for years. Dr. Bruce W. Smith and our team have also noticed that the number one change our patients request for their smile is whiter, brighter teeth. So, what are some things that can stain and discolor your teeth?

1- Food and beverages: berries, certain candies, coffee, tea, and red wine can attach to the tooth enamel and stain it.

2- Tobacco use: tar and nicotine can darken teeth.

3- Medications: drugs such as antibiotics, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications can alter tooth enamel.

4- Age: as enamel thins out over time, the yellower dentin layer beneath comes through.

5- Trauma: injury can darken tooth color because the tooth creates more dentin in response to an injury.

We are pleased to offer Zoom! whitening for our patients. If you are ready to make a change in your smile and are interested in learning how our tooth whitening treatment can help you, please give our experienced team a call today at 713-529-4364.
