When you eat dark foods or drink dark beverages, tiny particles can become trapped in the microscopic pores on the faces of your tooth enamel. This can cause stains on your tooth enamel that can gradually seep deep into your teeth. These resulting stains are even more likely to occur if you use tobacco products on a regular basis.
This drives many people to contact Comprehensive Dental Health and explore their teeth-whitening options in New Haven, CT. Even if you choose a retail-whitening product, you should always consult with Dr. Dr. Joseph Tagliarini before starting any new whitening regimen. We have the professional training and experience to help you find the most effective way to safely whiten your smile.
Using whitening toothpaste in your daily oral hygiene routine is a convenient way to brighten minor surface stains. Just keep in mind that the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in whitening toothpaste simply won’t be strong enough to affect more than surface stains.
Wearing whitening strips is also a convenient way to whiten your smile. The clear plastic makes it hard for the casual observer to even notice you’re wearing them. Just like whitening toothpaste, the topical hydrogen peroxide cannot remove moderate to deep stains from the tooth enamel.
Dental whitening gel employs stronger concentrations of whitening agents than whitening toothpaste or strips. You can apply it to your teeth in the comfort of your own home to whiten moderate stains from your smile. If you go this route, you will need to be extremely careful to keep the whitening gel from contacting your gums as it could cause severe irritation.
The most effective way to safely whiten your smile is to have Dr. Dr. Joseph Tagliarini administer a dental bleaching treatment. Our professional techniques and potent whitening agents can eradicate deep stains from tooth enamel and restore the luster of your smile.
If you’re suffering with a stained smile, you should call 203-624-5515 to schedule a whitening consultation at Comprehensive Dental Health.
