What causes tooth discoloration and decay?
Many forms of discoloration and decay occur because of your daily habits. A leading cause of this is daily soda drinking. Soda is very acidic and attacks your enamel, and on top of that, the sugars in a soda can cause plaque buildup if you aren't doing the proper daily cleaning routine.
A Smile is the first thing people notice.
Your teeth/smile is usually the first thing a person notices about you. Knowing this, cosmetic dentistry can also boost self-esteem and confidence.
Your teeth are just like a fingerprint
Teeth are unique to each person much like fingerprints. That's why dental records are used to identify people in forensics. That's just a little factoid for you 🙂
