Many dark beverages such as coffee, tea, and cola introduce microscopic dark particles to your mouth. If they aren’t cleaned away by your daily routine, they can start to adhere to the faces of your teeth and gradually saturate the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel. As these dental stains continue to progress it can leave you with teeth shaded yellow, gray or brown.
If you have noticed significant dental stains on your teeth, the wisest course of action is to schedule an appointment with a dentist like Dr. Joseph Tagliarini. After a professional examination to assess the severity of your dental stains and the general health of your teeth he will help you understand your treatment options.
In many of these cases, a dental bleaching treatment is a safest and most effective method for removing dental stains from your tooth enamel. The treatment can be done in a single outpatient appointment without harming your teeth or other oral tissues.
