Why the smile changes with time
Discoloration of the smile is something that has long been associated with age. In reality, there is more than the passage of time to blame for dullness and stains. While enamel is one of the strongest substances found in the body, teeth also have thousands of tiny pores wherein microscopic particles of debris can settle. Some of the most common causes of discoloration include:
- Routine consumption of coffee, tea, red wine, or soda
- Poor oral hygiene
At a young age our teeth are healthy white. But overtime the enamel coating the tooth is so slowly worn down. Causing our teeth to become stained and yellow, which is why teeth whitening is become increasingly popular today. There are a few methods for whitening. They include at home and in office. With in office treatments, you will see faster results, receive the safest treatment for bleaching the teeth, and yield the whitest smile. So, don’t settle for teeth that have become stained from years of coffee drinking, tobacco use, or just aging. Ask your dentist about whitening options that may be right you.
While these three points can be partially responsible for unwelcome changes to your smile, it is also possible that genetics predetermine the color of your teeth, or the discoloration is due to the use of certain medications

What our patients say about Teeth Whitening Treatment
“Dr. Azouz safely removed my old mercury fillings and replaced them with porcelain. I liked his entire office staff and appreciated the attention to safety relative to my mercury fillings. I have had health issues for several years and often worried that my mercury fillings had something to do with my frequent headaches, fatigue, & autoimmune disorder. The procedure, while long, went well and I have felt great every day following. Time will tell if removing the mercury fillings improves my health but, for now, I can just say that I was very pleased with the removal process.“ Anita G.
