If you were to look at the surfaces of your teeth under a powerful microscope you would likely notice tiny pores and textures in the tooth enamel. This is an aspect of the mineral nature of your teeth. However, these areas can also collect microscopic dark particles from the foods and beverages you consume.
Certain dark beverages such as coffee, tea, and dark-colored soft drinks have a reputation for contributing to chronic dental stains. If minor surface stains caused by these dark beverages are not removed in a reasonable amount of time they could gradually start to saturate your tooth enamel.
If you have noticed significant dental stains on your teeth, it’s best to schedule a consultation at A Brighter Smile Dental Care’s dental offices. A professional examination from Dr. Michael R. Wiesner can help determine the severity of your dental stains and the most effective method for safely whitening your smile.
This might call for administering a dental bleaching treatment to effectively remove dental stains from your tooth enamel. This can be performed in a single outpatient appointment to successfully remove dental stains without harming your teeth or other oral tissues.
Going forward you might need to make some minor lifestyle changes to prevent the redevelopment of dental stains. This could include limiting your consumption of dark beverages or try drinking them through a straw.
