Discolored or stained tooth enamel can be embarrassing in many of life’s social settings. Unfortunately, the consumer-strength whitening agents used in whitening toothpaste and whitening strips are rarely potent enough to fully remove stains from deep within tooth enamel. For a smile this seriously afflicted with stains, you’ll need to have Dr. Henry Danziger administer a dental bleaching treatment.

The potent dental bleach employed in this treatment combined with Dr. Henry Danziger’s professional tools and techniques represent the safest method to completely remove stains from your smile.

With the luster of your smile fully restored, our dentist can then work with you to identify the most common source of the stains in your daily life. Cutting back or eliminating some of the following things will go a long way toward helping you maintain your brilliant smile:

Chocolate, tomato sauce, dark berries and other dark food items often have compounds that promote stains. Cutting back on these foods will certainly help. You might want to also try brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.

Coffee, tea, green tea, and soft drinks often have a strong concentration of stain-causing particles. You can still enjoy these beverages if you drink them through a straw.

Tobacco use is a particularly powerful culprit for causing significant stains in the tooth enamel. If you use tobacco on an occasional basis, you should strongly consider talking to your doctor about a cessation program. Beyond the obvious health benefits, you will also be able to enjoy your white smile for much longer as a non-smoker.

If you live in Naugatuck, Connecticut, and you are struggling to improve your discolored or stained smile, you should call 203.729.0563 to schedule a whitening consultation with Dr. Henry Danziger.
