The surfaces of your teeth have microscopic pores and textures. When you consume dark foods and beverages, tiny dark particles can adhere to these areas. In time, they can set into the tooth enamel, causing stubborn stains on your smile. One way to prevent this is to remove minor surface stains by brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste in Whitaker, Pennsylvania.

Before purchasing any brand of whitening toothpaste, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

Unfortunately, moderate to deeply stained tooth enamel can rarely be improved by retail-grade whitening products. In a case like this, your dentist, Dr. Robert Doyle, will need to administer a professional dental bleaching treatment. This is the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile.

Once your teeth have been completely whitened, you can then add a brand of whitening toothpaste to your daily oral hygiene routine to help remove surface stains before they set in. This can be an effective way to maintain your white smile and reduce your needed for future dental bleaching treatments.

At the same time, it might also help to make some minor changes in your lifestyle choices. Cutting back on dark foods and beverages and avoiding tobacco use will go a long way toward maintaining your smile.
