How to Prevent Stains
It’s true that coffee, tea, berries, soy sauce, and other richly-pigmented substances are notorious for staining teeth. This is because these food particles are attracted to tooth enamel by specific proteins. As time passes, teeth are more prone to stains and therefore more likely to change to a dull, yellowish color.
However, there is one type of stain that can appear as a result of traumatic injury, medications, and fluorosis. These stains actually develop from inside the tooth and cannot be treated with brushing and flossing alone. In contrast, external stains can be treated with dedicated daily oral care.
Today, more and more people are looking to teeth whitening procedures to not only remove stains caused by food and tobacco, but aging as well.
The Truth About Teeth Whitening
While it’s true that store-bought solutions like “whitening toothpastes” can remove some stains and make them appear brighter, many of these products are very abrasive and can actually harm the teeth. Keep in mind that tooth enamel does not grow back once it’s lost.
While the whitening agents in these products can change the color of your teeth, it won’t work on all stains. If you have brownish or grayish stains, you may find it difficult to remove them with whitening toothpaste. Or, if your teeth are pitted, you’ll likely see little results. The same applies if you have dental restorations, including crowns, bridges, cosmetic bonding, and tooth-colored fillings.
If you’re looking for the most effective and safest method for whitening your teeth, you’ll find professional whitening performed by our office to be the most ideal. When done by a skilled team, the effects can last as long as five years!
