Does Creamer Lighten Your Coffee Enough to Avoid Stains?

Posted on 12/21/2020 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
You may already know that coffee, along with sodas, some wines, and some juices, can stain your teeth. If you can't get going in the morning without your daily cup of Joe, though, you may think you have found a loophole: add enough creamer to your coffee to lighten its color. Surely lighter-colored coffee won't stain your teeth as much, right? While it's a good idea, unfortunately it's not true. What Causes Stains from Coffee? When you drink coffee, the color of the liquid isn't what actually stains your teeth. Instead, the discoloration is caused by tannins. You may not have heard about these organic substances before.

This type of mouth guard can be purchased at a sporting goods store, department store, or pharmacy, and they are usually inexpensive.

Posted on 11/16/2020 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
Dental veneers are essentially thin shells made of either porcelain or a composite resin that go over your natural teeth. Veneers are used to correct your teeth's appearance if they're worn, damaged, stained, or crooked. Veneers are a great option to help give you beautiful and very natural looking teeth. Given proper care, dental veneers can keep your smile looking great for well over 10 years. Below we'll talk about what it takes to keep veneers in great shape. Practice Regular Oral Hygiene Dental veneers help fix your teeth's look, but that doesn't mean you get to slack off on brushing your teeth or flossing. Always be sure to brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day, and don't forget to floss between your teeth to clean out what your toothbrush might've missed! Proper cleaning is possibly the most important thing to keep your dental veneers looking flawless for many years. A word of caution though - mouthwashes that contain alcohol can...
