Stained tooth enamel can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. One of the most effective ways to brighten your teeth is to have your dentist, Dr. Razan Daccak, perform a professional whitening treatment to eradicate the stains from your teeth. However, these results will only be temporary if you do not address the primary cause of the stains.

Certain foods like chocolate, tomato sauce, and dark berries have compounds that can also stain tooth enamel. Cutting back on these foods will certainly help. Incorporating whitening toothpaste in your oral hygiene routine can also help.

Dark beverages like coffee, tea, green tea, and soft drinks often have a strong concentration of stain-causing particles. You can still enjoy these beverages if you simply drink them through a straw.

If your staining issues are related to regular tobacco use, you should strongly consider talking to your physician about finding a cessation program that’s right for you. Beyond the obvious health issues, the tar and chemicals tobacco products introduce to your mouth can very easily cause deep stains on your teeth.

If you have visible stains on the teeth in your smile, you should call (832) 426.4433 to ask about a professional bleaching treatment in Pasadena, Texas. Our Time Square Dental Group dental team is happy to help you!
