When you drink dark beverages like coffee, tea, and certain soft drinks it can introduce microscopic dark particles to your tooth enamel. In a short amount of time, this could cause minor surface stains to appear on the teeth in your smile.

One convenient way to prevent significant surface stains from building up on the teeth in your smile is to brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste. It can remove minor surface stains while also maintaining your white smile between dental cleanings. Just keep in mind that the mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide in whitening toothpaste will not be potent enough to improve more significant dental stains.

When shopping for whitening toothpaste you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The ADA logo can only be printed on oral hygiene products that have been researched and tested to meet vigorous guidelines.

If you are dealing with more significant dental stains you might want to schedule a whitening consultation with Dr. Steven W. Huber, DDS. In many of these instances, he can remove significant dental stains with a professional bleaching treatment. This will safely and effectively whiten your tooth enamel.

If you live in the Grove City, Ohio, area and you are struggling to deal with dental stains, you should call 614-875-7070 to schedule a whitening consultation at Ohio Urgent Dental Care.
