Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening in Rochester MN

Question: What causes teeth stains?

Answer: Surface stains, also known as extrinsic discoloration, forms as a result of smoking and the foods and drinks we consume. Foods high in sugar and drinks containing dark pigments can cause this type of discoloration. Stains forming below the surface, also known as intrinsic discoloration, occur as a result of medication and trauma.

Question: What can I do to prevent discoloration?

Answer: To avoid discoloration, reduce your consumption of drinks with dark pigments, such as coffee, soda, red wine, and tea. Cut back on foods with high sugar content and stop smoking. In addition, maintain good oral healthcare habits, such as regular brushing and flossing. Together, these tips can help you keep your smile brighter for a longer period of time.
