Drinking Dark Beverages Through a Straw Can Help Maintain Your White Smile

Posted .

Dark beverages like coffee, tea, and soft drinks can introduce dark particles to your mouth. As they pass over the surfaces of your teeth these dark particles can adhere to the microscopic texture of your tooth enamel. If these minor surface stains are not removed by your daily oral hygiene routine, it can leave you with an increasingly stained smile.

As time goes on, the whitening products offered in stores will likely lack the potency to restore your smile’s appearance. In a situation like this, you should consider the professional whitening treatments available at Spartan Family Dentistry.

To fully restore the white gleam of your smile, Dr. Martin Trockel will likely need to perform teeth whitening in Bixby, Oklahoma. The professional tools, techniques, and potent whitening agents he uses can safely remove stains from your teeth without risking harm to your mouth.

With your white smile fully restored, our dentist can then suggest some minor lifestyle changes to help maintain the appearance of your teeth. This might call for using a whitening toothpaste approved by the American Dental Association as well as cutting back on certain foods.

Drinking dark beverages through a straw can also be helpful. This will reduce the contact between the liquid and the teeth. Any minor surface stains that do manage to develop on your teeth can then be cleared away by your routine dental cleanings at Dr. Martin Trockel’s clinic.

If you have a stained smile, you should call 918-366-3777 to schedule a consultation at Spartan Family Dentistry.
