A Look at How Veneers and A Change in Your Diet Can Have Your Smile Looking Whiter and Brighter Than Ever Before!

Do you want to whiten your smile but wish to avoid using strong bleaching gels? Or are your teeth resistant to such treatment? Tooth discoloration does not have to be something you must live with your entire life. Dr. Jonathan Titus and the team at Titus Dentistry in Middletown, Indiana, provide veneers for discolored teeth.

Discoloration could occur due to the foods and drinks you consume. Following is some information on how to avoid discoloration via diet and how veneers can help correct your tooth discoloration.

Decrease Consumption of Foods and Drinks That Stain

You have no way of rewinding time and undoing any stains that staining foods and drinks may have caused, but you can decrease the amount you consume moving forward and prevent the discoloration from worsening. This is especially helpful if you are going to invest in a teeth whitening option, such as professional whitening or veneers.

Here is a list of some foods and drinks which can lead to tooth discoloration:

  • Black Coffee
  • Red Wine
  • Tea
  • Various Fruits

A general rule of thumb is if any food or drink can stain your clothes, it can stain your teeth. While fruits are healthy, eating too many red cherries, blueberries, and other staining fruits could lead to tooth discoloration over time. The same goes for the drinks causing stains.


Professional teeth whitening is very popular, having both in-office and take-home options. However, there are situations where whitening is not the best option for a person. Maybe it would take too many treatments to correct the type of stain impacting your teeth. You may have sensitive teeth, and the powerful whitening gel required for a teeth whitening treatment can cause discomfort. When a whitening treatment doesn’t work, veneers are a great alternative.

Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells applied to your teeth’ front surface. They are stain-resistant and require minimal tooth preparation before they can be applied.

Are there other issues with your stained teeth, such as a chip or crack? Veneers can be used to treat both issues at once!
