Teeth Whitening Products
Our teeth go through a lot every day—chewing a variety of foods, coming into contact with hot and cold drinks etc. Often, because of all this exposure to different foods and substances, our teeth can become discoloured: appearing yellowy or brown instead of pearly white. Tower Health offers solutions for improving the colour of your teeth, making them appear whiter and brighter.
What Causes Discoloured Teeth?
Various different things can cause your teeth to become discoloured. As mentioned, food and drink can be a big factor. Darker coloured drinks such as coffee, red wine and coca cola can particularly stain your teeth, as can some foods, such as apples and potatoes.
Tobacco is another big cause of teeth staining. If you are a regular smoker or chew tobacco, this may result in discoloured teeth.
Some diseases and medications can also cause your teeth to become more brown or yellow. For example, radiation therapy near to the head or chemotherapy can cause tooth discoloration, as can antihistamines for allergies, blood pressure drugs and antipsychotic medicines.
Finally, non-external facts such as age and genetics can have an effect on the colour of your teeth. Some people are genetically predisposed to have either whiter or more brownish-yellow teeth. Teeth tend to get darker the older you get as well, as the enamel becomes worn away over time to reveal the natural yellow of the dentin beneath.
Ways to Prevent Teeth Discolouration
Lifestyle changes can prevent your teeth from becoming brown or yellow. You can cut down on some of the contributors mentioned about, such as coffee and cigarettes. Practising good dental hygiene is also important. Make sure you clean your teeth twice a day for an adequate amount of time, as well as using floss and antibacterial mouthwash. You can also get your teeth cleaned by a dental hygienist. All this ensures that you have the minimum amount of plaque build-up possible on your teeth.

We offer a couple of different teeth whitening solutions at Tower Health. The first is Dental Drops with Fluoride from Medosan. The liquid uses a combination of natural ingredients and fluoride to remove stains on teeth from your daily lifestyle.
