Dental stains often start out mild and nearly indistinguishable to the casual observer. Though, as time goes on, these minor surface stains can start to saturate the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel, penetrating deeper into your teeth. If it’s not counteracted in some way, this can leave you with an unsightly, yellow smile.  

Once this happens, the whitening products available on store shelves will not be potent enough to effectively restore your white smile. To fully improve this level of staining, you will need Dr. Joseph N. Falco to administer a dental bleaching treatment at his Hopkinsville, Kentucky, dental office. This is the safest and most effective way to remove stains that have saturated your tooth enamel.

Once this is done, you can then maintain your brightened smile by occasionally applying whitening strips to your teeth. Just be sure to select a brand that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of acceptance. This logo proves its safety and effectiveness in oral use.

The topical form of hydrogen peroxide the strips have been treated with can effectively counteract minor surface stains. The clear, plastic strips also make it hard for the casual observer to notice you’re wearing them. Just be sure to avoid eating or drinking while you’re wearing the strips.

This will help you maintain your bright, white smile between regular dental checkup and cleaning appointments. This will save you from having to have whitening treatments performed frequently.

If you live in the Hopkinsville, Kentucky, area and you are struggling with a deeply stained smile, you should call 270-632-6404 to set up a whitening consultation at Pennyrile Family Dentistry.
