How Your Lifestyle Affects Your Tooth Color

teeth whitening San Diego

Most people want to have white teeth and a great smile. But the majority of people have discolored or just plain yellow teeth, especially in a world of tea and coffee drinkers. At Marcos Ortega DDS in San Diego, we can fix that.

Tooth enamel is a little like skin. It has pores that can get clogged and discolored. The most common habits that work against you are:

  • Tobacco and other smokable substances
  • Sodas and other dark colored drinks, i.e. coffee, red wines, and teas
  • Not practicing daily oral hygiene
  • Not having proper dental care

If you want to lighten your teeth, the above will consistently work against you.

We advise kicking these habits to the curb if you want the whitest teeth possible. (There are compelling health reasons, too.)

If, in spite of your best efforts, your smile is still dull, professional teeth whitening from Marcos Ortega DDS in San Diego can revive it.
