Can Better Smile Care Help Me Avoid Teeth Stains?

How much can you really do to keep your smile safe from discoloration? Is a better brushing routine going to stop any new stains from forming or enable you to clear away those stains that have already formed? A good oral hygiene routine can help you clear away the particles from different foods and beverages that can change the color of your enamel. With that said, without changes to your diet, it can be difficult to fully address this problem even if you do make positive changes to your routine. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we offer a variety of cosmetic dental services, including teeth whitening treatments, so we can help you move past problems with the color of your smile!

Why Are Teeth Stains So Difficult To Avoid?

Many products that we enjoy regularly leave particles on our teeth that cause them to change color. While you can fight their buildup with good smile care, it is difficult to fully protect yourself against gradual changes if you are not taking care to avoid these products. Cutting back on dark and color-rich beverages like red wine, tea, coffee, and cola – as well as dark and color-rich foods – can be beneficial. Of course, if you are already affected by discoloration, this change by itself will not help you deal with stains that have already formed. To address them, cosmetic care can be called for.

Fighting Existing Issues With Discoloration

If you are already bothered by the color of your teeth, cosmetic dental treatment can help. During a consultation, we can talk to you about the benefits of a professional whitening treatment. Whitening services provided through your dentist can remove stains that store bought products do not address. We can also use your consultation as an opportunity to determine if intrinsic discoloration is something we should address. If there are internal problems with your tooth structure, it may be necessary to move forward with other services, like the placement of porcelain veneers, to make lasting changes to the color of your smile!

Smart Smile Care Can Help You Avoid More Than Just Discoloration

Remember that the right approach to smile care does more than just keep your teeth bright. You should be brushing and flossing regularly to protect yourself against issues with gum disease and tooth decay. At regular dental exams, your dentist can help you fight these problems, or determine if more work is needed to properly restore your oral health.
