Teeth may look totally solid, but in actuality, the surface of your tooth is porous. These pores soak up the pigments from deep-colored foods and drinks, such as red wine and coffee, as well as tobacco products. This can leave your teeth stained.

Retail whitening products can help reduce surface stains, however, they do not affect the deeper stains in your tooth enamel. These deeper stains require professional-grade whitening treatments to remove. Deep-tooth stains often require in-office whitening or take-home treatments from your dentist.

If you have stubborn tooth stains that can’t be removed with approved retail whitening products, come see our talented dentist, Dr. Mark Hughen, who can help safely and effectively whiten your teeth with appropriate techniques and technology. For many patients, Primary Dental Clinic offers the professional-grade whitening agents need to remove years’ worth of deep enamel stains.

After professional whitening treatments, many individuals choose to use a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips that have earned the ADA Seal of Acceptance to maintain their smile color. This helps prevent further surface stains from developing on teeth, while ensuring the product used is both safe and effective.
