Very few people are born with “perfect” teeth. If you want to improve your smile, you’ll have to take good care of your teeth. You may also consider dental procedures to keep them sparkling and white. Here at the Redondo Beach Dental Center, we offer cosmetic dentistry procedures that can give you a brighter, more aesthetic smile. Here’s what you need to know.

What Causes Cosmetic Issues with Teeth?

There are many potential reasons behind dental problems. These can include genetics, habits, and your overall health. Here are a few of the things that can affect the appearance of your teeth. 

  • Brushing habits. Dental professionals recommend brushing twice per day and flossing daily. Skipping this habit will likely lead to dental problems.  
  • Food and drink. Sugary foods, caffeinated beverages, and alcohol can stain and damage your teeth. 
  • Genetics. Some people have genetic conditions that can cause your teeth to appear yellow, get more cavities, and produce more bacteria. 
  • Tobacco or nicotine. Tobacco and nicotine can both lead to oral health issues such as staining and decay. 
  • Other health issues. Having other health issues, such as acid reflux, can affect the health and appearance of your teeth.

  • Teeth Bleaching, which uses whitening ingredients to lighten the color of your teeth.
  • Microabrasion, where the teeth are polished with an abrasive solution.
