Simple Lifestyle Changes Can Help Prevent Further Dental Stains

Posted .

Dental stains that accumulate on the faces of the teeth in your smile can be unsightly. Even if you’re tempted to try using retail strength whitening products, you will likely find them ineffective at mitigating significant dental stains.

Rather than risk the frustration as well as possible harm to your teeth and gums, you should consider scheduling an appointment with an experienced dentist like Dr. Nathalie Dowsett. In a short appointment, she can assess the severity of your dental stains to help develop an effective plan for restoring your smile’s appearance and maintaining white teeth in the future.

This process often starts with administering a dental bleaching treatment to fully eradicate dental stains that have saturated your tooth enamel. The professional tools and techniques we use can protect your teeth and periodontal tissues from harmful exposure to the concentrated dental bleaching agents.

After your teeth have been fully whitened, our team can help you understand the necessary measures needed to help maintain your professionally whitened smile.

This might include abstaining from tobacco and cutting back on certain foods like chocolate, dark berries, and rich tomato sauces. It could also be very beneficial to drinking dark beverages through a straw. This can help reduce possible recurrence of dental stains over the long term.

If you notice minor dental stains developing on the surfaces of your teeth, you might want to try using a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
