Dull, yellow stains on the teeth in your smile can hinder your self-confidence and limit your enjoyment of life. In most of these situations, the stains in the tooth enamel have penetrated too deep for whitening toothpastes or whitening strips to remove them. Should this prove to be the case, you will need to have Dr. Armen Terteryan administer a dental bleaching treatment.

The potent whitening agents and professional techniques he uses are the most effective method for safely removing stains from your teeth.

However, if you don’t work to identify the initial cause of the stains, they will inevitably reappear.

It might be a good idea to cut back on stain-causing foods like chocolate, tomato sauce, and dark berries. Using a whitening toothpaste as part of your oral hygiene routine can reduce surface stains caused by these foods between dental cleanings.

Drinking dark beverages like coffee, tea, and certain soft drinks is also a very common cause of stains on tooth enamel. You can still enjoy these beverages. Just be sure to drink them through a straw.

Tar and other staining chemicals from tobacco use can deeply penetrate tooth enamel in a short amount of time. You should talk to your primary physician to find a cessation method that’s right for you.
