Your smile is one of the first things people notice, and sometimes, maintaining white teeth can be challenging even with good oral hygiene. Fortunately, Dr. Boyd can help you achieve a whiter, more beautiful smile with professional teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening, or bleaching, is a simple, non-invasive cosmetic treatment used to brighten the color of natural tooth enamel and enhance the beauty of your smile. Learn some common reasons your teeth stain, and how our skilled New York team can enhance the shade of your smile with our whitening treatments.
What Causes Teeth to Stain
There are several factors that can cause teeth to become stained, discolored, or yellowed over time. Common reasons include aging, smoking, drinking, genetics, and:
- Eating blueberries, pomegranates, or other dark fruits
- Drinking red wine, coffee, soda, and tea
- Taking certain medications
- Using tobacco products
- Poor oral hygiene

After a whitening treatment, it’s important to take care of your smile to prevent further staining and avoid possibly damaging your teeth. Use a soft-bristled brush with lukewarm water when cleaning your teeth, and avoid hot or cold foods for at least a day.
We recommend increasing the time between treatments, lowering the time spent whitening, and reducing the level of concentration used. For a lasting white smile, it’s best to avoid foods and beverages that lead to stains such as coffee, tea, wine, beets, soy sauce, and berries.
You can help maintain a whiter smile by brushing twice a day and flossing daily and scheduling regular dental cleanings. Dr. Boyd also recommends keeping clear of dark-colored foods and beverages, alcohol, and tobacco products to prevent staining.
Over time, a variety of things can stain your teeth and turn them yellow. Age also influences discoloration. Luckily, it is completely possible to turn yellow teeth pearly white again. The most immediate and effective method is to see our dentists for an in-office whitening treatment.
There are also a large number of in-home whitening kits that you can use to whiten your smile, but these typically contain a lower concentration of whitening agents than the in-office whitening treatments. In-office whitening treatments also cause less sensitivity which allows you to brighten your smile to your liking.
