Your tooth enamel often has microscopic pores on the surface. When you consume dark beverages or occasionally use tobacco tiny stains can start to accumulate in these textured surfaces.

If they are not removed when you brush your teeth, these surface stains can gradually start to saturate your tooth enamel. This can eventually leave you with dull smile with yellow, brown, and gray.

In a situation like this you should contact Dr. Joseph Ruzzo ’s dental office to schedule a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents and professional techniques at his disposal represents the safest way to remove dental stains.

After your teeth have been fully whitened, Dr. Joseph Ruzzo can help you understand the necessary measures needed to maintain your white smile.

This might include abstaining from tobacco and cutting back on certain foods like chocolate, dark berries, and rich tomato sauces. Drinking dark beverages through a straw can also help prevent dental stains from redeveloping on the teeth in your smile.

If you notice minor dental stains developing on the surfaces of your teeth, you might want to try using a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips that have earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.

If you live in the McLean, Virginia, area and you have significant dental stains on the teeth in your smile, you should call 703-448-3312 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at Dental Group of Tysons.
