Masks may have hidden our smiles from view over the past several months, but all is alive and well on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. People of all ages continue to scroll and see beautiful people with immaculate smiles living their best life. Spending as much time as we do on apps like these can really get into our heads and make us compare our own appearance to those we see online. With masks to cover the process, now is an excellent time to whiten your teeth and capture the beauty you’ve been longing for. Plus, when the masks come off, you’ll be ready to stun everyone in person with your new beautiful look.

What Causes Teeth to Become Discolored?

Teeth become discolored and stained over time due to contact with highly-pigmented food and beverages as well as chemical compounds such as minerals and over-fluoridated water. Some of these foods and drinks include things like:

  • Red wine
  • Fruit juices
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Tomato-based sauces
  • Tobacco
