When you drink your morning coffee or some other dark beverage a residual amount of microscopic dark particles can accumulate on the surfaces of your teeth. If they’re not cleared away in a reasonable amount of time the minor dental stains can start to saturate into your tooth enamel.
Over time it can leave you with a smile stained in shades of yellow, gray, or brown. This can have an effect on your self-confidence and cause you to guard your smile’s appearance in many of your facial expressions.
If you have moderate to severe dental stains on your teeth, you should consider scheduling a whitening consultation with one of our experienced dentists, Drs. Scrimalli, Ratchford, or Ahmadzadeh. The extensive training and experience they have received can help you find the most effective methods for whitening your smile.
In many of these cases, the best method for restoring your smile’s appearance is to have our dentists administer a dental bleaching treatment. In the future, you might want to take additional measure to prevent new dental stains from affecting your smile’s appearance. Our dentists might recommend cutting back on dark beverages and abstaining from any tobacco use.
You could also try occasionally brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste. Just be sure to look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance, as they have been researched and tested for safe oral use.
