Stained and discolored teeth are one of the most common cosmetic dentistry complaints. Over the counter whitening toothpastes and products can help, but they can only make minimal improvements and may contain abrasive ingredients that strip away at the enamel layer, making your teeth even more vulnerable to staining over time. But you don't have to settle for a dull smile and stained teeth. Dr. Jonathan Stone, a dentist in Wayne, PA, recommends professional teeth whitening treatments, which can safely whiten your teeth by several shades in as little as a single dental appointment.

Even the best oral hygiene routine may not be enough to protect your teeth from stains. Eating and drinking common foods and drinks like coffee, tea, red wine, berries, and sauces slowly dull your teeth over time. Tobacco is also a major culprit, and also increases your risk of oral and general health problems. But even if you don't smoke or drink red wine or coffee, the normal aging process itself can affect the brightness of your smile as the enamel layer slowly wears down over time.
Professional teeth whitening treatments are the best option for safe and long-term results. The process is non-invasive, and can be completed in a single hour appointment with a multi layer application of a professional grade whitening gel.
After your professional whitening treatment is complete, there are several things you can do to keep your teeth bright and stain free. The most important thing is to brush and floss every day, and to visit the dentist every six months as recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA) for a checkup and professional cleaning, and try to limit consumption of foods and drinks that are known to cause staining.
