Maintaining strong oral habits are a key component to a whiter, brighter smile. Brushing and flossing teeth daily goes a long way to keeping your smile healthy. At Alaska Dental Associates located in Anchorage, Alaska, Dr. Kyle M. Triggs has been helping patients achieve healthier smiles since the late 1970’s, and has seen firsthand that the number one change our patients want for their smile is having whiter teeth.

So, what causes your tooth enamel to darken?

–Food and beverages: coffee, tea, and red wine can attach to the tooth enamel and stain it.
–Tobacco use: tar and nicotine can damage your tooth color.
–Medications: drugs such as antibiotics, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications can darken teeth.
–Age: as the tooth enamel thins out, the yellower dentin layer beneath comes through.
–Trauma: can also darken your tooth because if your mouth sustains an injury, the tooth creates more dentin in response.

At Alaska Dental Associates in Anchorage, Alaska, we offer teeth whitening for our patients seeking a smile color renewal. Dr. Kyle Triggs and our team are happy to brighten your smile with our professional teeth whitening treatments.
