Over 40 Coffee Stained Teeth Remedy
Chances are if you are over 40, you’ve probably drank a lot of coffee over your life time. That coffee has probably left you with coffee stained teeth, even if you get your teeth cleaned on a regular basis.
The fact of the matter is 68% of people drink coffee first thing in the morning. Many of those continue to drink coffee throughout the day. And like it or not, time accumulates a lot of things, including coffee staining our teeth.
So how does coffee stain you teeth more when your are over 40?
Enamel is hard, in fact it is the hardest element that we have in our bodies. It does take time for staining to happen and when one is over 40, teeth staining tends to happen because we have more cracks, fissures and rough spots on our teeth. It allows tannins in things like coffee, tea and wine to seep through and stain our teeth.
Even without cracks and fissures, the natural micropores in enamel create over 40 coffee stained teeth. And it is the micropores that are the secret to effectively whitening our teeth at this age too!
Why over the counter teeth whitening products give us hope… but pretty much suck
Ok, so it is true, after using teeth whitening strips our teeth look a bit whiter.
They also usually hurt like hell for days afterward. Sensitive to everything.
Reason being: the solution is harsh, and it’s basically going after surface stain. Most over the counter and teeth whitening don’t actually get to the dentin, that layer just under your enamel. Even many professional teeth whitening products don’t make it to the dentin and the real culprit of the visible staining.
Effective teeth bleaching sinks into those micropores discussed earlier to get to the dentin which is what is really reflecting that yellowed, darkened look to your teeth. It’s much softer than enamel and soaks up the color.
