What Are Your Options For Teeth Stain Removal?
October 25, 2017 Nicholson Blog

Your smile is the first thing people notice upon greeting you. Using your smile is also the best way to make a positive first impression.

People who face the world with a big, bright smile are perceived as confident. Confident people get better jobs and earn more money. But, perhaps you aren’t smiling as often as you normally might because you are embarrassed by the shade of your teeth.

Coffee drinkers, wine drinkers, and smokers usually have some stains that can give their teeth a yellow hue. However, there is good news: teeth stain removal is an effective and budget-friendly option to get your teeth back to the brilliant pearly whites you once had.

We’ve done the stain removal research for you, and have compiled a list of the best procedures to get your teeth shiny and bright again!

1. Intrinsic Bleach Teeth Stain Removal

This process involves staining the dentin, or the sensitive tissue that is just below your enamel. This layer is especially prone to soaking up yellows and darker colors from different liquids.

As your enamel wears away with poor mouth health, this layer becomes especially vibrant. Since these stains are on the inside of your teeth, there aren’t many home remedies for it. It’s time to consider professional dental bleaching trays for your teeth.

These trays can perform deep teeth stain removal in addition to the ones on the surface of your teeth as your teeth soak in the bleaching concoction overnight, or for a span of time during the day.

2. Crest Whitening Strips

Crest Whitening Strips can be found at your local drugstore, but aren’t quite as effective dental trays from your dentist. When it comes to teeth stain removal, the strips lack the powerful active ingredients that can only be obtained from a licensed professional.

However, if you are in a pinch, these white strips can be purchased for $45.00 and can help your teeth appear at least one shade whiter. Though the results won’t last as long as the professional dental trays, you will see a significant change after a few treatments.

If you’ve got a photo shoot coming up or any last minute event that you need to quickly spruce up for, these are a great, temporary option.

3. Bonding or Capping

Boding applies a tooth-colored material to your stained teeth. The dentist will then contour it to the desired shape. The resin will then cure, and your professional family dentistry will smooth and polish it.

You will immediately see the original whiteness of your teeth restored. You can also consider crowning, though it involved placing tooth-colored caps on top of your stained teeth. It is a more involved process and is sometimes painful.

Both are effective and can be performed by the pros.

It might not seem like much at first, but you can see from this picture how much of a difference stain-free teeth can make with your smile!

 

When it comes to preserving your pearly whites and teeth stain removal, try to brush as often as possible immediately after consuming certain things. Pasta sauce, berries, coffee, and wine are all very staining to your teeth.

Having a big bright smile will make you feel confident about sharing it on a daily basis. Everyone needs a lift through your smile, so smile at a stranger. You never know whose day you might change with your stain-free smile.
