Sometimes dental stains can saturate so deep into your tooth enamel that retail whitening products simply lack the potency to fully whiten your teeth. It’s also worth noting that excessive use of these products could potentially harm your teeth and irritate your gums.

If you are struggling to deal with chronic dental stains, you should consider scheduling a dental bleaching treatment from a dentist like Dr. Bret Cope and Dr. Radley Robins.  

Once your white smile has been fully restored, you will need to take steps to prevent new dental stains from developing. This might include a variety of diff things, including limiting your consumption of dark beverages. When you do drink a dark liquid, it might also be helpful to use a straw.  

Occasionally using quality whitening strips that have been approved by the American Dental Association can help maintain minor dental stains before they get the chance to further saturate your tooth enamel. They are made from a clear sheet of plastic that has been treated with a topical form of hydrogen peroxide.

If you live in the The Woodlands, Texas, area and you are struggling to deal with significant dental stains on your teeth, you should call 281-363-3308 to set up a dental bleaching treatment at Sterling Ridge Dental Center.
