If you were to look at the surfaces of your teeth under a powerful microscope, you would see a plethora of microscopic pores and textures. When you consume dark beverages and foods, like chocolate and dark berries, tiny dark particles can become trapped on these textured surfaces. If they’re not removed in a timely manner, they could work their way deep into the tooth enamel, leaving you with an unsightly, stained smile.
Many people struggling with a stained smile in Littleton, New Hampshire, will reach out to Dr. John S. Grisham to understand their options for whitening their smile. The training and experience he has received can help you find the safest and most effective method for whitening your smile or for maintaining its natural luster.
Whitening toothpastes available on store shelves are bolstered by exorbitant marketing claims about their effectiveness. In truth, the mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide whitening agents they employ can never be strong enough to whiten moderate or deeply stained teeth.
For a smile with moderate to deep stains, Dr. John S. Grisham will often recommend a dental bleaching treatment. This will safely and effectively whiten your teeth. You can then use a whitening toothpaste to remove future surface stains before they have a chance to permeate the enamel of the teeth in your smile.
You should always look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance before selecting a brand of whitening toothpaste. This seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.
