Minor dental stains on the surfaces of your teeth can often be mitigated by whitening toothpaste or whitening strips. Unfortunately, more significant dental stains can rarely be removed by conventional retail whitening products.

If you have been dealing with chronic dental staining problems, or your teeth are significantly stained, you should turn to the professional dental bleaching treatment offered at Dr. James Thomason’s dental office. The tools, techniques, and potent whitening agents at his disposal can effectively remove dental stains without risking harm to your teeth and sensitive oral tissues.

Once your white smile has been fully restored Dr. James Thomason can help you understand additional measures needed to prevent future dental stains This includes cutting back on certain foods that are prone to causing stains, such chocolate, tomato sauce, and dark berries.

You might want to also develop a habit of drinking dark beverages through a straw. This will minimize your tooth enamel exposure.

Tobacco users should strongly consider finding an effective cessation program. Beyond the obvious health benefits eliminating the tar and chemicals from your mouth will greatly help reduce your chances of suffering future dental stains.

You could also try occasionally brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that’s been approved by the American Dental Association. This can help remove minor surface stains before they have a chance to saturate your tooth enamel.
