Teeth go through a lot of aging problems. If you have been drinking caffeinated drinks and smoking tobacco products for years, your teeth will become stained, dull and discolored. What happens is the outer enamel of your teeth is worn away, and your teeth become thinner and more brittle as this happens. The looks of your teeth lose their lustre and need some brightening. The food that you eat also become attracted to the dentin of your teeth, especially foods containing protein. As your teeth become stained from coffee, tea, berries and even soy sauce, they darken in color. Your teeth become even more vulnerable to staining from food and other substances.
By taking a Teeth Whitening Port Elizabeth session, your teeth have a fighting chance against further staining from foods and drinks. They also will look better and brighten your smile. You’ll get the staining to stop and protect your teeth from the harmful effects of foods and drinks by getting your teeth professionally whitened.
