Dental stains that affect the appearance of your teeth can be embarrassing and frustrating. Many people with discolored teeth might think that experimenting with retail tooth whitening products is a great idea. Many teeth whitening products evoke confidence in their effectiveness through persuasive marketing claims. Unfortunately, most of these products overpromise and underdeliver. Oftentimes, they promote excessive use, which could potentially be harmful to your teeth and gums.
If you have stained teeth, the safest and wisest course of action is to schedule a consultation appointment with a dentist like Dr. Blake Dayley.
After determining the severity of the issue, our dentist can professionally whiten your smile with a dental bleaching treatment. This can effective remove dental stains without harming your teeth or gums. Then, he can help you develop a simple plan to reduce your chances of suffering future dental stains; this might call for drinking dark beverages through a straw, cutting back on specific foods, or ceasing the use of tobacco.
If necessary, you might have to occasionally brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association seal of approval.
