The tooth enamel surfaces of your teeth are pockmarked with microscopic pores and textures areas. When you consume dark foods and beverages or use tobacco products it can cause miniscule particles to become trapped on the surfaces of the teeth in your smile. As time goes by, these minor surface stains can start to saturate your tooth enamel. You might notice increasing dental stains turning your teeth shades of yellow, tan or gray.
At first you might be tempted to try one of the whitening products available at the retail level. Unfortunately, this might not always be the safest or most effective option. Some of these products lack sufficient potency to resolve significant dental stains. Others use harsh chemical concentrations that could potentially harm your teeth and gums.
Before starting any new whitening program, you should schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Jennifer E. Taylor. The extensive training and experience she has received can help assess the severity of your dental stains and the most effective method for safely removing them from your smile.
Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste or wearing whitening strips can help to remove minor surface stains as they start to develop. Unfortunately, the hydrogen peroxide whitening agents used in most brands, will likely prove inadequate for more significant dental stains.
To safely whiten teeth affected by more significant dental stains, you will need Dr. Jennifer E. Taylor to administer a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents and professional techniques she uses can safely remove stains that have penetrated deep into your tooth enamel.
