Everyone wants a smile that sparkles, but there are many things that might cause discoloration of the teeth. Some of these things are sticky foods, highly pigmented foods, acids, and smoking. Of course, the simplest step that you can take to ensure that your teeth stay as white as they should is to stop smoking and avoid acidic foods like sodas, but that is not always easy.
We recommend that you brush your teeth after eating or at least rinse your mouth with water when you are done drinking or eating something acidic. There is no solution for the stains that prolonged smoking can cause, which means that abstaining from this habit is the best solution. There are a few solutions for surface dental stains like brushing your teeth with a little baking soda, but the problem becomes much more difficult when the stains have penetrated the dentin. At this point, one of our professionals will have to begin the tooth whitening process.
Do not worry; tooth whitening is just a matter of removing the stains with various whitening agents. Keep in mind that your smile will be spectacular by the time we are done with the procedure, which really does not take too long. Do not hesitate to give us a call to schedule your appointment.
