If your teeth are not as white as you would like, you may hide your smile from others and conceal a part of who you are. At Warr Dental in Salt Lake City, we want all of our patients to have a bright, beautiful smile and we offer teeth whitening solutions to those who wish to rejuvenate their teeth.

As we get older, our teeth lose the luster they once had in our youth. This happens naturally over time, but there are certain factors that also accelerate the discoloration process as well. Understanding what contributes to this can help keep your teeth looking their best.

Some of the most common causes of tooth discoloration include:

  • Smoking
  • Dark drinks (coffee, black tea, red wine and cola drinks)
  • Certain medications
  • Minerals in drinking water
  • Hereditary predisposition to early yellowing
  • Onset of gum and tooth disease

If you frequently smoke or drink dark liquids your risk for tooth discoloration is increased. Regardless if you're genetically predisposed to early discoloration, or if your lifestyle contributes to the staining, we offer teeth whitening solutions so that you can feel good about your smile once again.

If your teeth are not as white as they could be and you want to learn more about the whitening options at Warr Dental, give us a call at 801-216-3713 to schedule your dental exam and consultation. Our dentist serves patients in Salt Lake City, West Jordan, Midvale and surrounding areas of Utah.
