Daily brushing and flossing are essential to keeping your smile healthy and your teeth looking their best. At Dr. Shur Dental located in Lynnwood, Washington, Dr. Lyudmila Shur has been helping patients achieve healthier smiles for almost a decade, and has seen firsthand that the number one change our patients seem to desire for their smile is having whiter, brighter teeth.

So, what can cause the tooth enamel to darken?

1- Food and beverages: berries, certain candies, coffee, tea, and red wine can attach to the tooth enamel and stain it.
2- Tobacco use: tar and nicotine can darken teeth.
3- Medications: drugs such as antibiotics, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications can alter tooth enamel.
4- Age: as enamel thins out over time, the yellower dentin layer beneath comes through.
5- Trauma: injury can darken tooth color because the tooth creates more dentin in response to an injury.

What can you do when your teeth have lost their whiteness? At Dr. Shur Dental in Lynnwood, Washington, we offer teeth whitening for our patients seeking a smile color renewal. Dr. Lyudmila Shur and our team are happy to whiten your smile with our professional teeth whitening treatment, usually in only one in-office visit.
