To be clear, you’re not going to end up with stained dental implants. What you will end up with if you’re not careful, however, is discolored restorations that sit on top of your implants. We know that the last thing you want to worry about once you’ve gotten your smile complete and lovely looking is the chance of yellowing or a darkening of your otherwise beautiful tooth replacements. The fantastic news is that we can help you very easily avoid the types of problems that leave your smile vulnerable to staining (natural remaining teeth included).
Remember, They’re Not Immune To Stains
One of the benefits you probably learned about when you were introduced to dental implants is the fact that our restorations are crafted from lifelike, stain-resistant materials. Their color is customized and, though they may seem fragile, they’re actually quite resilient. The same is true of your natural teeth! In both cases, while immediate staining is not a concern, long-term discoloration is absolutely a possibility. Keep this in mind, so you don’t end up disappointed down the road.
What To Consider
Remember that there are multiple culprits that lead to the possibility of your dental implants’ restorations becoming stained (as well as your natural teeth). Let’s review these potential dangers, so you remember to limit or steer clear of them:
- Smoking cigarettes will leave residue on your smile that leads to staining
- Deeply pigmented beverages and foods coat your teeth and may lead to staining
- Poor dental hygiene and neglect of professional cleanings may also contribute to staining
