Stains can develop on the teeth in your smile, if you frequently consume dark foods like chocolate, dark berries, and tomato-based dishes. Frequently drinking dark beverages without using a straw and using tobacco can also quickly cause surface stains on tooth enamel.

If they are not removed on a daily basis, these unsightly shades can start to saturate your tooth enamel, leaving you with a dull yellow-, tan-, or even gray-appearing smile.

Even though you might be tempted to try one of the whitening products sold in stores, you will likely find them ill-suited for the task. Even the more potent options could cause harm to your teeth or gums.

In a situation like this, the wisest course of action is to schedule a whitening consultation with Dr. Martin Trockel at Spartan Family Dentistry. This will serve to assess the severity of the stains and to find the most effective method for safely restoring your white smile.

In many cases, this calls for our dentist to administer a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents he uses can remove even the deepest stains from teeth. You can then maintain your white smile with retail whitening products like whitening toothpaste or whitening strips.

If you live in Bixby, Oklahoma, and you’re struggling with a stained smile, you should call 918-366-3777 to schedule a whitening consultation with Dr. Martin Trockel.
