Question:
Firstly i'd just like to say thankyou for your time.. i'm a 17 year old boy from America and my teeth are discoloured, due to the fact then when i was a kid i was eating way too much sugary stuff, ie; chocolate etc and drinking lots of things like Coca cola, my teeth have now turned yellow and i'm desperate to get them white as my self confidence is rock bottom because of this problem, i brush several times a day and i have not had any foods with sugar in for about 8 months, what foods do you recommend to eat which are health for teeth? and also because i brush lots and lots of times a day can this actually make my teeth worse? i am seeing no improvements some days they look ok, others they don't, please help. Thank you so much.
Scott
Answer:
Dear Scott,

In general any tooth discoloration can be attributed to several different causes. Some of them can be improper diet as it can be in your case or it can be more serious problem such as an intrinsic or an internal staining due to the use of antibiotics or other medications early in life when you were 3-7 y.o. This can be addressed and evaluated by the dentist. The solution will also have to be determined by the dentist during the diagnostic stage of the evaluation. This can be either some form of whitening and the farther maintenance or just whitening and change of diet or even more complex cosmetic dentistry approach such as porcelain veneers. If you want to know the specifics of your personal situation and what is more acceptable for you personally and what will fulfill you expectations and needs please contact our office at 495-730-4334. Unfortunately any medical or dental problems and it solution can only be diagnosed and hopefully resolved with the doctor and a patient during the diagnostics at the time of the appointment but not over the phone or e-mail. Therefore I would suggest to you to see a dentist regardless of clinic, keeping in mind you receive an adequately trained doctor and personnel. Regards,
V.V.Soyfer
