If you frequently enjoy dark beverages like coffee, tea, and cola, or you use tobacco products, you will likely notice a gradual change in the appearance of your teeth. As minor dental stains start to develop, they can slowly start to saturate deeper and deeper into your tooth enamel.

Over time, this can leave you with an unsightly and unappealing smile. Rather than experimenting with over-the-counter dental whitening products, you should first schedule an appointment with our dentists, Dr. F. Todd Wortham and Dr. Seth Jorgensen. The professional training and experience they have received can help our dentist accurately assess the severity of your dental stains and suggest a method to safely remove them. In many of these cases, they may administer a whitening treatment to break up the stains on your teeth.

After your procedure you mi, ht want to occasionally brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association. This might help to remove minor surface stains before they can worsen and saturate your tooth enamel. It might also help to cut back on certain foods like chocolate, dark berries, and dark tomato products. It could also be very beneficial to drink dark beverages through a straw. If you use tobacco, this is the perfect time to quit.
