Tobacco Stains on Teeth Need Professional Whitening Measures

June 11, 2021

Along with the frequent consumption of dark beverages, tobacco use can easily contribute to significant dental stains appearing on your teeth. The tar and other chemicals introduced into your mouth when you smoke or chew tobacco can saturate tooth enamel so deeply that retail strength whitening products will likely prove ineffective.

If the appearance of your teeth has been significantly altered by tobacco stains, you should consider scheduling a professional dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents and professional techniques used at Artistry in Dentistry are potent enough to remove tobacco stains from deep within your tooth enamel while also protecting your teeth and other oral tissues from harm.

In the future you also might want to consider a tobacco cessation program. This can help reduce your chances of experience further dental staining while also helping to maintain a healthy mouth and body.

If new tobacco stains start to alter your teeth again, you will likely need Drs. Sheldon Sullivan and Shawn Monahan to perform yet another dental bleaching treatment.

Brushing your teeth each morning and night with a fluoride toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance will also help prevent future dental stains from appearing on your teeth. This should also be followed up by remembering to floss at least once per day and attending a dental checkup twice each year.

If you are in the Gilbert, Arizona area, and you have significantly stained teeth, you should call 602-492-9003 to set up a dental bleaching treatment at Artistry in Dentistry.
