The outer surfaces of your teeth are clad with durable tooth enamel. This biologically generated mineral substance is also microscopically porous. When you consume dark beverages and certain dark foods microscopic particles can adhere to the surface textures of your teeth.
If your daily oral hygiene routine fails to remove minor dental stains, they can start to saturate deeper into the pores of your tooth enamel. This can gradually alter the white appearance of your smile.
As dental stains continue to worsen, you will likely find retail tooth whitening products to be ineffective. At this point, the most effective method for safely removing the stains from your teeth is to have Dr. Kurt Seidler administer a dental bleaching treatment.
This professional tooth whitening process can remove stains that have saturated deep into your teeth. Once this is done you will need to take active steps to maintain your white smile.
Along with cutting back on certain foods and beverages, you might also want to consider the strength of your tooth enamel. Poor oral hygiene practices can demineralize tooth enamel, causing the pores and textures in your tooth enamel to expand. In time, it could make it easier for dental stains to saturate your tooth enamel.
It’s important to remember to brush your teeth each morning and night as well as remembering to floss at least once each day. It’s also important to attend a routine dental checkup with a dentist like Dr. Kurt Seidler to maintain the health of your mouth and the strength of your tooth enamel.
