Stains on your front teeth can leave you with a smile that has been dimmed by unsightly shades of yellow, gray, and brown. Rather than risk damaging your teeth and gums by experimenting with retail grade tooth whitening products, you should schedule a whitening appointment with our dentist, Dr. Joseph N. Falco.

In the course of a single appointment, the dentist can assess the severity of your stains and develop an effective plan for restoring your smile’s appearance. In many of these cases, the dentist will administer a chairside, or in-office whitening treatment to fully eradicate dental stains that have saturated your tooth enamel. Our dentist will use a powerful gel to break up the stains in your teeth while protecting your gums from the whitening agent.

Once your white smile has been fully restored Dr. Joseph N. Falco will talk with about what you can do to maintain the appearance of your teeth. This might include cutting back on certain foods like chocolate, dark berries, and rich tomato sauces. It could also be very beneficial to drink dark beverages through a straw. Tobacco can stain teeth brown and nicotine will turn them yellow. If you use tobacco, now it would be a good time to quit. If you notice minor dental stains developing on the surfaces of your teeth, you might want to try using a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
