Occasional tobacco use can cause dental stains to develop on your teeth. This can leave you with an unappealing smile that hampers your sense of self-confidence.
Tobacco cessation is certainly the wisest course of action for preserving your oral health and preventing dental stains. If you are struggling to quit, you might be able to lessen the tobacco stains by periodically brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste.
Just make sure you are only using a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The small logo can only be printed on the package of a product that has been researched and tested to prove it meet rigorous standards.
The minor concentration of hydrogen peroxide can help remove minor surface stains before they have a chance to penetrate your teeth.
If more significant dental stains have developed on your teeth, you might want to have Dr. Amanda Rhoades administer a dental bleaching treatment. Once your teeth have been fully whitened you can help prevent future tobacco stains by brushing with whitening toothpaste.
