Even the strongest, healthiest tooth enamel still has tiny microscopic pores on the surface. These miniscule textures can sometimes trap tiny dark particles that are introduced to your mouth when you consume dark foods, and beverages, or use tobacco.
If these minor surface stains aren’t removed from your tooth enamel in a reasonable amount of time they can start to saturate your teeth. This can occur faster if your tooth enamel has been compromised by poor oral hygiene practices.
In these instances it’s best to schedule a dental bleaching treatment with a dentist like Dr. Eseoghene Okugbaye and the professionally trained staff at Alvarado Family Dentistry. This simple outpatient treatment can safely and effectively remove significant dental stains from your tooth enamel.
After this is done you might be able to maintain your white teeth by periodically brushing with a quality whitening toothpaste. The mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide used in these retail strength products can help eliminate minor dental stains before they can saturate your tooth enamel again.
When shopping for a brand of whitening toothpaste you should always keep an eye out for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The ADA’s logo can only be printed on an oral hygiene product that has been researched and tested to meet vigorous guidelines.
If you live in the Alvarado, Texas, area and you are struggling to deal with stains on your teeth, you should call 888-635-6401 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at Alvarado Family Dentistry.
