If you are beginning to see stains and blemishes build up in your smile, it’s time to take action! You can enjoy a bright white smile by talking to your dentist about your options for whitening your smile. While certain conditions that contribute to dental discoloration are genetic, many stains stem from factors you can control by modifying certain behaviors. Your dentist can help review your diet and other lifestyle choices that may contribute to stains on the surface of your teeth. While over-the-counter whitening products may seem attractive, our professional approach can relieve foreign material from your enamel that alternative products leave behind. You may be surprised that all this can be done in the office in under an hour. For patients who prefer a more gradual approach, we also create take-home whitening kits for you to apply at your own leisure. Take advantage of your kit after the initial treatment to perform touchups as needed!
At your Riverside, CA dental practice, we understand how important your smile can be to your self-confidence. Because your teeth take center stage whenever speaking or laughing, significant stains and blemishes can cause significant embarrassment. While your oral health may be completely on point, yellow teeth can cause others to question your hygienic habits. Fortunately, a professional whitening session can put those questions to rest.
How Stains Build In The Surface Of Your Smile
Certain drinks can leave a lasting impression by stretching your smile. If you enjoy soda, coffee, tea, or wine, pay attention to any staining left behind afterward. Consider switching to alternative beverages to reduce the loss of your stain-free smile. Similarly, tobacco use in any of its forms can leave dark, tarry marks on your enamel. Make sure to stay on top of your daily brushing and flossing, and attend regular dental checkups to prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar. These bacterial deposits form a sticky yellow film that can be quite unattractive.
Prioritize Regular Checkups
If it has been more than a year since your last dentist visit, give us a call! By attending cleanings and exams on a semiannual basis, you can prevent decay that wreaks havoc on your smile’s appearance and function. Creating a dental record allows us to identify any sudden changes since your last visit.
