Dental stains that appear on the front teeth are an all too common a problem suffered by millions of Americans each year. They are most often linked with the frequent consumption of dark beverages and certain foods like chocolate and dark berries. However, the natural processes of aging and even occasional tobacco use can also cause your teeth to lose their once white luster.
The dental whitening products sold in stores can be understandably tempted. The effectiveness of many of these items is bolstered by exorbitant marketing messages that bolster their claims of effectiveness. However, most fail to live up to their claims, and some can even prove harmful to your mouth.
Before using any tooth whitening product, you should always consult with your dentist. The years of training and experience that Dr. Chadwick Webster has received can help identify the safest and most effective way to remove dental stains from your teeth.
