WebMD Lists Best Ways to Wreck Your Teeth
WebMD, a leading source in health news, has recently released a tongue-in-cheek article entitled, “15 Ways to Wreck Your Teeth.” Despite its humorous title, the piece highlights some important things you shouldn’t do if you want to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful. One bad habit the article mentions is using your teeth as tools. “Chomping ice and hard candy, not to mention popping off bottle caps and ripping open potato chip bags, can crack or break your teeth.”
The article goes on to describe another dental no-no many of us are guilty of: drinking too much red wine and coffee. Though many factors can contribute to stained or discolored teeth, coffee and wine are among the top culprits. Remember, stained teeth are not only less beautiful, but their sandpaper-like surface can attract more bacteria, which can ultimately promote tooth decay. “Teeth are tough,” says WebMD, “but they're no match for neglect, misuse, or abuse.”
Have You Been Neglecting Your Smile?
Cracked or chipped teeth are among the most common concerns patients come to us with. Often, the best solution is Porcelain Veneers. Dental veneers—also known as porcelain laminates—are thin, tooth-colored shells that are custom-fit and bonded to the fronts of the teeth. When the procedure is complete, your teeth will be restored to their natural, beautiful appearance—the right shape, size and color.
Another common concern among patients is tooth discoloration. Teeth Whitening—also known as tooth bleaching—is a proven means of achieving a whiter, brighter smile. Using a strong hydrogen peroxide gel, we can whiten teeth that have become stained as a result of drinking coffee and wine, smoking and even taking certain medications. Remember, a whiter smile is a more beautiful smile.
