The surfaces of your teeth have microscopic pores that can sometimes trap minute particles from dark beverages, certain foods, and tobacco use. If they’re not removed from your tooth enamel this minor surface stains can deepen. Once this happens the oral whitening products sold in stores will likely prove ineffective at removing the dental stains.
One of the more convenient ways to prevent this from happening is to periodically brush your teeth with whitening toothpaste. Most brands use a mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide as the active whitening agent. This can help remove minor surface stains before they have a chance to saturate your tooth enamel.
It’s important to note that not all whitening toothpaste is safe for your teeth and gums. When shopping for a whitening toothpaste you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The small logo printed on the package indicates that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.
If your teeth are suffering from more significant dental stains, you will need Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt to administer a dental bleaching treatment. Once the dental stains have been cleared away you can maintain your smile’s appearance by occasionally brushing with whitening toothpaste.
