One of the best ways to prevent teeth stains is to practice a good dental hygiene and teeth cleaning routine.
A quality oral health regimen includes brushing your teeth at least twice every day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and flossing at least once a day. Rinsing with an antiseptic or anticavity mouthwash after you brush and floss can help remove lingering food particles and kill additional bacteria.
Your oral health routine should also include regular check-ups and professional teeth cleanings with Hoboken, New Jersey, dentist Dr. Frank DePaola. These visits allow us to help you maintain a bright, healthy smile and assess potential problems before they become serious.
Even with an exceptional dental health routine, however, your teeth can become discolored. The natural effects of aging, lifestyle choices such as smoking, and the consumption of dark-colored foods and beverages can all stain your teeth.
If you’re seeking to restore luster to discolored teeth, you may benefit from the Zoom! 2 teeth whitening system, which can whiten your teeth by several shades in a single treatment. For patients with deep stains, porcelain veneers may be a better option.
