Not only can tobacco use put you at increased risk of medical and oral health conditions, the tar and other chemicals introduced to the mouth can quickly leave you with stained teeth. As the discoloration saturates your tooth enamel, it will likely prove increasingly difficult to whiten your smile with the tooth whitening products sold at the retail level.
If you are struggling to deal with tobacco stained teeth, you should consider scheduling a dental bleaching treatment with one of our skilled dentists. The potent whitening agents and professional techniques we employ are potent enough to safely remove tobacco stains that have saturated your tooth enamel.
Going forward, you might want to consider speaking to your primary physician about a tobacco cessation program. Quitting tobacco use can help reduce your chances of suffering further dental stains, while also helping to maintain a healthy mouth and body.
Making sure to brush your teeth each morning and night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste that have earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance will also help remove some minor dental stains before they can worsen. In conjunction with daily flossing and regular attendance at your dental checkups, it can help you maintain healthy tooth enamel.
