Dental stains can develop on your teeth as you age. They are even more likely to be an issue if you frequently enjoy dark beverages, use tobacco, or you consume foods like chocolate, dark berries, or rich tomato sauces.

When minor surface stains first start to develop on the faces of your front teeth, you might be able to remove them by periodically brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste. The mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide can help resolve minor dental stains before they have a chance to saturate deeper into the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel.

It’s important to always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance before using any brand of whitening toothpaste. This small logo can only be printed on oral hygiene products that have been researched and tested to meet vigorous guidelines.

If you are dealing with more significant dental stains on your teeth, you will likely need Dr. Mehrnaz Iranmehr to professionally remove them with a dental bleaching treatment. This will safely and effectively whiten your tooth enamel without placing your mouth at undue risk.

If you live in the Dallas, Texas, area and you are struggling to deal with dental stains, you should call 972-447-9707 to schedule a whitening consultation with our dentist at Preston Family Dentistry.
