Chronic dental stains can be socially embarrassing and can leave you wanting to explore your options for enhancing your smile at Bruce Brumm. One of the most effective methods for fully restoring your white smile’s appearance is to have Dr. Bruce Brumm provide a dental bleaching treatment.
With your smile’s luster restored, he can then work with you to identify the most common source of stains in your daily life. Cutting back on or eliminating some of the following things will go a long way toward helping you maintain your newly whitened smile.
Chocolate, tomato sauce, dark berries and other dark foods can often cause surface stains that could deepen in time. Cutting back on these foods will certainly help. You might want to also try brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
Many dark beverages like coffee, tea, green tea and soft drinks often have a strong concentration of stain-causing particles. Cutting back on these things can also help resist future stains. If you occasionally want to enjoy one of these dark beverages, you might want to drink them through a straw.
Even occasional tobacco use can cause significant dental stains. It is well worth the time and effort to find an effective cessation program. Beyond the obvious health benefits, you will also be able to enjoy your white smile for much longer as a non-smoker.
