Every year millions of Americans deal with stains on their teeth. Minor stains are dealt with early on with a polish by your dental hygienist during your routine checkup. Darker or deeper dental stains will likely need further treatment. This is even more likely to be an issue if you frequently consume dark-colored foods and beverages that promote dental staining. Tobacco users are also more likely to experience dental stains on their front teeth.

In some cases, a whitening treatment from Dr. Michael Gardner will likely prove to be the safest and most effective method for improving your smile. Once this is done, you will need to take some steps to maintain the luster and whiteness of your tooth enamel. Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has the American Dental Association’s Seal of Approval can sometimes help remove minor surface stains before they have the chance to saturate your tooth enamel. Most use mild concentrations of hydrogen peroxide as their primary whitening agent. In conjunction with abstaining from tobacco and cutting back on dark beverages, whitening toothpaste might be able to help you maintain your professionally whitened smile.

If you live in the Ontario, California, area and you have noticed dental stains developing on your teeth, you should call 909-983-9639 to set up a whitening consultation at Euclid Family Dentistry’s dental offices.
