Some people have discolored teeth and these people know how self-conscious they can feel about the discolorations. Many suffer in silence and simply put up with the fact that their teeth are not a more ideal color. However, they may also not realize that there are options available for the effective treatment of dental discolorations. Personal health and personal appearance are of great importance for many people who have to interact with friends, work colleagues, customers and associates in different capacities each day. For these people, it is essential that they look good and that they take care of their appearance.
Teeth discoloration is very common and, in some cases, the reasons for the problem can go back as far as childhood. The most common causes are through smoking or chewing tobacco although these are now on the decline. Drinking large quantities of tea, coffee or carbonated beverages is another common cause of tooth discoloration. In addition, having taken certain antibiotics as a child, trauma, poor dental hygiene and general aging are some of the other main sources of the problem.
