Your tooth enamel is made up of a complex matrix of mineral crystals. These microscopic structures have tiny pores and other textures that can sometimes trap minor surface stains. If they aren’t removed they can set into your tooth enamel to cause more significant dental stains.

To effectively improve teeth in this condition you should consider scheduling a whitening consultation at Dr. Adam Vitelli’s dental offices in Germantown, Maryland. During this appointment he can assess the severity of your dental stains and help determine the best method for whitening 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 earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.

More significant dental stains can only be removed by having Dr. Adam Vitelli administer a dental bleaching treatment. The professional techniques and potent whitening agents that he employs can safely remove deeply set in dental stains.  

In the future, you might want 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.

If you live in the Germantown, Maryland, area and you are dealing with chronic dental staining, you should call 301-972-1400 to schedule a whitening consultation at Vitelli Comprehensive Dentistry.
