When you consume dark foods and beverages, tiny staining particles can be trapped in the microscopic textures on the surface of your tooth enamel. If these minor surface stains aren’t removed, they can gradually penetrate your teeth, causing deeper and deeper stains in your smile.
Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste is a convenient way to remove surface stains before they have a chance to set into the tooth enamel. Just keep in mind that the concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste aren’t potent enough to brighten moderate to deeply stained teeth.
When you are shopping for whitening toothpaste in Midlothian, Virginia, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.
Deep stains on tooth enamel can rarely be whitened by the products available in stores. Your dentist, Dr. Jeryl Abbott, can administer a professional dental bleaching treatment to remove this level of staining from your teeth.
