Dental stains can develop when microscopic dark particles manage to infiltrate the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel. If they’re not removed in a reasonable amount of time minor surface stains can start to saturate deep into your teeth causing significant dental stains.

This level of dental staining can rarely be improved by retail strength whitening products. In a situation like this, the wisest course of action is to schedule a dental bleaching treatment with an experienced dentist like Dr. Alexis LaRose.

Once he has safely and effectively whitened your teeth, you will still need to take measures to maintain your professionally whitened smile. This might include cutting back drinking dark beverages as well as limiting your consumption of dark foods like chocolate, and dark berries.

Some individuals also like to occasionally use whitening strips to remove newly developed dental stains from the front teeth. This can help remove minor surface stains before they have a chance to redevelop. Just be make sure to look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Approval before using any brand of whitening strips.

If you live in the Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, region and you need help restoring your smile’s appearance you should call 208-966-6054 to set up a dental bleaching treatment at Kootenai Family Dental.
