Is It Time To Ask Your Dentist For Help With Teeth Stains?

Do teeth stains affect your confidence? Have you already tried to deal with the problem by using store-bought whiteners, but felt let down by the results? Even with an effective brushing and flossing routine in place, you can have stains build up over time and affect the color of your smile. The stains that have accumulated can settle beneath the surface of your enamel and become harder to address, making it seem as though you are stuck with dull teeth. What you should know is that your Allen, TX dentist can provide you with a professional whitening treatment. Professional whitening agents can provide a more potent effect, so they can remove discoloration that has been difficult to address with over the counter products.

Why Is It So Hard For Me To Avoid Teeth Stains?

Foods and beverages that have dark or rich colors can leave particles on your teeth that steadily dull their color. Because so many popular products like coffee, tea, soft drinks, and many other items are hard to avoid, people can expose themselves to stains several times a day. While brushing and flossing can clear away these particles, they may worsen over time even if you are keeping your smile safe from cavities.

Making Plans To Whiten Your Smile

At our practice, patients can receive a custom whitening kit that can remove stains that are hard to address with store-bought products. Your kit provides you with a personalized tray, which can be used to evenly apply your prescription-strength whitening agents. With each daily application of these agents, you can break apart those particles in your enamel that hurt your color. After completing applications for a recommended period of time, you can be delighted to see how much brighter your smile has become!

Your Discoloration May Be Caused By Something Other Than Stains

While teeth stains affect many people, this is not the only reason for discoloration. Your teeth can start to look dull because of enamel erosion, or due to problems with medications you might have taken in the past. If you have a tooth that stands apart for looking duller than its neighbors, a past injury may be the cause. Other forms of cosmetic dental treatment can be more effective at addressing these problems. These issues can often be treated with porcelain veneers, or with bonding treatment.
