If you’re like most people, you can’t function in the morning before you’ve had your cup of coffee. That daily cup of Joe has become a necessary ritual for men and women all over the world to wake up and be productive. The many coffee shops found on every corner attest to its popularity.

Lamentably, this beloved beverage has an unattractive side-effect. It can turn your bright white smile into a dull yellow embarrassment. Yes, it’s true. The longer you imbibe, the darker the shade. Of course, coffee isn’t the only culprit. There are other foods and drink besides coffee that also contain acids that can seep into the tooth enamel and colorize your smile. Simple aging has the effect of yellowing what was once white and delightsome.

What to do? Well, in the past, if you wanted to keep your teeth white, you would have to give up your addiction and find another way to wake up in the morning. Thankfully, you live in a modern age with all sorts of teeth whitening products on the market. Simply make a run to the local pharmacy or grocery store to find a plethora of products that can help. If you chat with your dentist, he/she may recommend that you allow him/her to do the deed. Your dentist will have access to professional teeth whitening products and techniques that will be long-lasting and produce a better result.
