Dental stains can develop on your teeth when tiny particles from dark beverages and foods become trapped on the surfaces of your teeth. If these minor surface stains aren’t removed each day they can gradually start to saturate the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel.  

Scheduling a whitening consultation at Dr. Tammy Perison’s dental office in West Seneca, New York can help determine the most effective method for restoring your smile’s appearance. During this appointment, Dr. Tammy Perison can determine the severity of your dental stains as well as the overall health of your teeth.

Sometimes minor surface stains can be removed from your smile by whitening products sold in stores. This often comes in the form of a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips that have been approved by the American Dental Association.

To improve more significant dental stains, you will need to have Dr. Tammy Perison administer a dental bleaching treatment. The professional techniques and potent whitening agents she employs can safely whiten deeply stained teeth.

Afterward, it might be helpful to cut back on certain foods like chocolate, and dark berries. Drinking dark beverages through a straw will also help reduce direct exposure to the teeth in your smile. You might want to also try using an ADA-approved whitening toothpaste or whitening strips to remove minor surface stains, that do appear between dental cleanings.

If you live in the West Seneca, New York, area and you are dealing with chronic dental staining, please call 716-674-5256 to schedule a whitening consultation at Tammy Perison, DDS Family and Cosmetic Dental Care. We look forward to seeing your healthy, beautiful smile!
