Teeth Whitening Q & A:
How do I know if I need teeth whitening?
If your teeth are noticeably darker or yellower than they once were, you may be a good candidate for KöR whitening. There are many reasons why your teeth may be more dull and stained than they were when you were younger, including:
Drinking coffee, tea, or red wine
Consuming dark sauces (soy sauce, marinara, etc.)
A high-sugar diet (sodas, candy, etc.)
Certain medications, like antibiotics
Chemotherapy or radiation
The color of your teeth is primarily the result of your enamel — the protective layer on the outside of your teeth. Thicker enamel keeps your teeth lighter in color, while thin enamel exposes the darker, yellower dentin underneath. Some individuals naturally have thicker enamel and whiter teeth. Your enamel also starts to wear with age, which directly impacts the color of your teeth.
