When you consume dark foods and beverages, it’s possible for microscopic dark particles to adhere to the surfaces of your teeth. If these minor surface stains are not removed in a timely manner, they can slowly start to penetrate the tooth enamel. Once this happens, it can become increasingly difficult to restore your smile’s appearance with the whitening products available on store shelves.

To safely whiten a smile this severely stained, you will need a dental bleaching treatment at Star Dental. The potent dental bleach Dr. Sonny Ashfar uses paired with professional tools and techniques can remove deeply set-in stains without risking harm to your teeth or gums.

Once your white smile has been fully restored, you will need to take measures to prevent future stains from penetrating your tooth enamel. This can be done by cutting back on dark foods and beverages or occasionally using whitening strips.

These clear, plastic strips have a special topical form of hydrogen peroxide applied to them. You wear them as you go about your day, and the casual observer won’t even notice them on your smile. When using the strips, you need to avoid drinking, eating, or chewing gum.

Before purchasing a brand of whitening strips, you should look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This means that the product in question has been reviewed, tested, and researched to meet rigorous guidelines for safe oral use.

If you live in Roseville, California, and you’re struggling with a stained smile, you should call 916.773.6222 to set up a consultation at Star Dental.
