Dark beverages and even occasional tobacco use can start to have an effect on your tooth enamel. As time goes on you may start notice dental stains building up on your teeth, which could cause you to feel self-conscious about the appearance of your smile.

While you might be tempted to experiment with the tooth whitening produces sold in stores, it might not prove prudent. A few of these products rely on over-promising marketing messages to disguise their lack of potency. Even whitening products that have been approved by the American Dental Association often lack the potency to affect significant dental stains.

If you have been struggling with chronic dental staining problems wisest course of action is to set up a consultation appointment with a dentist like Dr. Madalina Iorgulescu. The professional training and experience she has received can accurately assess the severity of your dental stains and identify safest method for removing them.

Significant dental stains often require her to perform a dental bleaching treatment to fully whiten your tooth enamel, while also protecting your mouth from harm.

Once your teeth have been cosmetically restored whitening toothpastes and whitening strips might then be a convenient for removing minor dental stains before they have a chance to redevelop. Just make sure that any oral care product you use has the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance printed on the label.
