Simple things like dark foods, dark beverages and tobacco use can make minor surface stains set into the surfaces of your teeth. If they’re not removed in a timely manner, these minor dental stains can start to permeate deeper and deeper into your tooth enamel.

In a situation like this, your most effective method for whitening your smile is to have Dr. Edward Brandon perform a dental bleaching treatment at Edward S. Brandon DDS Inc. After your white smile has been fully restored, you will still need to take daily measures to preserve the luster of your teeth.

Cutting back on dark foods and beverages can certainly be beneficial. You might want to also try using a whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association. Be sure to look for the small ADA logo printed on the package. This represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness. Only products that meet rigorous guidelines are considered safe for use as part of a daily oral hygiene routine.

The mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide in the whitening toothpaste can remove surface stains before they have a chance to penetrate deeper into the tooth enamel.

If you live in the Brecksville, Ohio, area and you’ve been struggling with a dull, stained smile, you should call 440-526-8688 to schedule a whitening consultation with Dr. Edward Brandon.
