Your teeth get the strength to bite and chew food thanks in large part to the mineral density of your tooth enamel. This biological mineral substance has microscopic textures and pores on the surface.
If you struggle to remember to brush your teeth each morning and night or you fail to floss once each day, the chronic presence of plaque acids in your mouth could start to affect your tooth enamel. As gradual demineralization starts to occur the pores on the faces of your teeth can start to expand.
This can increase the size and depth of the microscopic pores. When you consume dark beverages and certain dark foods, or you use tobacco products, microscopic dark particles can become trapped in the expanded pores. In time they could saturate deep into your tooth enamel.
Dental stains of this magnitude can rarely be addressed with retail strength tooth whitening products sold in stores. In a situation like this, the best option is to have Dr. Christopher Burton and his team administer a dental bleaching treatment.
This can serve to safely remove dental stains, without risking the health of your teeth, gums or other soft oral tissues.
If you live in the Conroe, Texas, region and you have a significantly stained smile, you should call 936-756-9884 to explore the professional whitening options available at Conroe Dental Associates’s dental offices.
