Teeth whitening: Consult your dentist for teeth whitening options. Veneers are also another option. However, be careful on how white you want your teeth as they may look unnaturally white. Keep going for that perfect smile!

Depends: If your teeth are intact without major restoration, in-office with take home tray teeth whitening is the non-invasive choice, so long as your teeth are healthy & clean. If your teeth are significantly restored, then either all porcelain crowns or porcelain laminate veneers are a good choice. See your dentist who will perform a thorough evaluation and discuss what are your best treatment option.

Bleaching: Whitening toothpaste can help reduce stains (coffee, tea, tobacco) on the outside of teeth. But, to really whiten teeth, there are three different types of 'bleaching': 1. Over-the-counter = crest whitestrips. 2. Trays that hold bleaching gel against the teeth, and 3. In-(dental)office bleaching. All three types of whitening are effective. The faster the effects, the more expensive.

Yes: This can be very troublesome. I had herpangina and this was the worst aspect of the illness (lasted for months), and many people have it much more severely. If no cause (hormones, meds, GI reflux, xerostomia / sjogren's) is found, a good multivitamin may help. Topical anesthetics and lozenge Clonazepam are used & sometimes it resolves by itself.

Black hairy tongue: It is a condition caused by lengthening of the filiform papilla of the tongue. This in turn can cause it to become stained easily by coffee, food or tobacco. It can also occur after taking pepto-bismol or can be a side effect from taking penicillin. Certain types of bacteria and yeast can also be a factor.
