Do Dental Implants Stain?

If you’ve kept up with our blog recently, you know that we’ve been talking about some of the best home remedies for whitening your teeth. One of the solutions we gave was dental implants. Although the main purpose of dental implants is to provide you with an alternative to natural teeth when your natural teeth are no longer functioning the way they used to, it’s important to note the aesthetic improvements as well. In this blog, we’ll talk a little bit about the potential for staining with dental implants.

A Fresh Start

One of the main benefits of dental implants in terms of both functionality and aesthetics is that it offers you a fresh start. Teeth decay — it’s a natural part of getting older. However, with dental implants, you’ll be starting over with a fresh pair of white and durable implants that function just like your natural teeth. If you’ve lost teeth in the past due to poor oral hygiene or a traumatic injury, you’ll have a second chance at having great teeth. Although dental implants can stain, maintaining your oral health practices will allow you to keep them white just like your natural teeth. You’ll also never have to worry about tooth decay ever again!

Expert Advice

When you have a dental implant procedure done by a board-certified periodontist, you’ll have the benefit of having an expert opinion regarding maintaining your dental implants. Although, for the most part, maintaining your dental implants is similar to maintaining your natural teeth in that you’ll need to brush at least twice a day and floss once per day, there are several other considerations you’ll need to take note of if you and your periodontist opt for All-on-4® dental implants. Be sure to speak with your periodontist about this when you go in for an exam.
