Whitening Strips Often Lack the Potency to Brighten Tobacco-Stained Teeth

Posted .

Tobacco users frequently struggle with significant stains on their smile. The tar and other chemicals introduced to the mouth on a regular basis can adhere to the surfaces of tooth enamel. As time goes by, they can quickly penetrate deeper and deeper into the tooth enamel, leaving your smile an unsightly shade of yellow.

While you might be tempted to try using whitening toothpaste or whitening strips to brighten your smile, you will likely find they are not potent enough to truly affect the issue. Excessive use could potentially cause harm to your teeth or gums.

In a situation like this, you will need Drs. Nooraee and Gandy to perform a dental bleaching treatment. During this professional whitening treatment, they will use potent whitening agents and professional techniques to eradicate stains from deep within your tooth enamel.

With the gleam of your white smile fully restored, our dentists can help you identify the sources of the stains in your daily habits to help you modify them. While this certainly includes tobacco cessation, you might want to occasionally use whitening strips approved by the American Dental Association to remove future surface stains before they can penetrate your teeth.

These clear, plastic strips have been treated with a special topical form of hydrogen peroxide. You can conveniently wear them as you go about your day and the casual observer won’t even notice you have them on your teeth.

If you have been struggling with a stained smile and you live in the Frisco, Texas, area, you should call 972-335-3000 to set up a dental bleaching treatment at Twins Family Dentistry.
