The surfaces of your tooth enamel have microscopic pores and other minute textures. During the course of an average day, it’s possible for the particles of dark foods and beverages to become trapped in these areas. This could also occur from occasional and frequent tobacco use.
As time goes on, these minor surface stains can start to saturate deeper and deeper into your tooth enamel. This can leave you with an unsightly, dull, yellow smile.
Once this happens, the whitening products available in stores will not be potent enough to fully restore your white smile. To safely resolve this level of dental staining, you will need Dr. Frank Celenza to administer a dental bleaching treatment at his New York, New York, dental office.
With your smile’s natural, white luster restored, you can then prevent future stains by brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste. This will brighten tooth enamel and remove surface stains before they can once again penetrate your teeth.
While shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should only consider purchasing a brand that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This means that the whitening toothpaste in question has been reviewed, tested, and researched to meet rigorous guidelines for use in a daily oral hygiene routine.
If you live in the New York, New York, area and you’re struggling with stains in your smile, you should call 212-327-2623 to set up a whitening consultation at Celenza, Frank DDS, PC.
