Minor surface stains can develop on your teeth when you drink your morning coffee, enjoy a cup of afternoon tea or have a glass of red wine with your supper. Tobacco users are also at increased risk of suffering dental stains on the teeth in their smile.
If these minor surface stains aren’t removed in a reasonable amount of time the tiny dark particles on the faces of your teeth can gradually start to saturate the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel. As this continues to happen, it can leave you with teeth that have a deepening shade of yellow, gray, or brown.
Having Dr. Bruce Brumm perform a dental bleaching treatment at his San Diego, California clinic is often the only safe and effective method for removing significant dental stains from your teeth. Once this is done you will still need to take daily measures to preserve the bright luster of your teeth.
Cutting back on dark foods and beverages can certainly be beneficial. You might want to also try using a whitening toothpaste that’s been approved by the American Dental Association. This can help remove minor dental stains between your regular dental cleaning and exam at Dr. Bruce Brumm’s dental office.
Just be sure to look for the small ADA’s logo printed on the package before selecting any brand of whitening toothpaste. It indicates that the product has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness. Only products that meet rigorous guidelines are considered safe for use as part of a daily oral hygiene routine.
If you live in the San Diego, California, area and you’ve been struggling to whiten your stained smile, you should call 858-250-2933 to a dental bleaching treatment at Bruce Brumm.
