Individuals who frequently consume dark beverages like coffee, tea, and cola, or also use tobacco products, frequently experience dental staining problems. In a relatively short amount of time, even minor dental stains can start to saturate deeper and deeper into the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel.

While it might seem tempting at first, blindly experimenting with retail dental whitening products sold in stores. However, many of these items are ineffective at improving significant dental stains and excessive use could prove harmful to your teeth and gums.

If you have noticed dental stains building up on your teeth you should strongly consider scheduling an appointment with a dentist like Dr. Rick Jackomis. The professional training and experience he has received can accurately determine the severity of your dental stains while also helping you understand your tooth whitening options.

In many of these cases he can administer a dental bleaching treatment to remove deep-set dental stains. The professional techniques and potent whitening agents can safely improve the appearance of your tooth enamel.

Once your white smile has been fully restored you might want to occasionally brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association. Removing minor dental stains before they worsen can thus help you maintain your white teeth.

If you live in the Sterling, Virginia, area and you have been struggling with significant dental stains on your teeth, you should call 703-444-9244 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at Rick Jackomis, DDS’s dental office.
