Spring Into A Bright Smile!

bright smile maple grove mnAre you looking for a bright smile in 2024? If you have started to notice that your smile is not as beautiful as it once was, it could be a sign of extrinsic enamel stains. These stains can be seriously difficult to remove on your own, and while there are more over-the-counter options than ever before, it is important to talk with your dentist before you attempt to make any changes on your own.

At our dental office in Maple Grove, MN, our team is here to help you to look your best with a gorgeous smile. Stubborn enamel stains can hold you back, and starting your journey with a trusted dentist can help you to understand both the causes of your condition and ways to improve the appearance of your teeth.

Even Healthy Foods Can Stain Your Enamel

As you age, your teeth can start to appear yellow or dull due to contact with foods and beverages that are full of staining agents. Some of the common culprits in this regard include red wine and coffee, and if you smoke, this is your call to quit. But did you know that even some of the most nutritious fruits and vegetables can leave lasting reminders on the surface of your teeth? Some foods, like berries and beets, are full of staining agents.

Even with thorough brushing and flossing, the stains that these foods leave can be difficult to safely remove on your own. While there are many over-the-counter options available at your local drugstore or supermarket, talking with your dentist is a smart move before attempting to make any changes on your own. Overbleaching your enamel can lead to dentin sensitivity, and a meeting with your oral health team can help you to know your next steps.

Achieve A Brighter Smile With At-Home Whitening Treatment

If your dentist gives you a diagnosis of extrinsic enamel stains, then it is time to talk about your options in treatment. At our office, we can provide you with an at-home cosmetic teeth whitening regimen that can help you to lift the shade of your smile. You can use this form of treatment alongside your nightly brushing and flossing!

Simply fill your custom trays with our powerful lifting agent and wear them for the set period of time. Over the course of the next few weeks, this process will gently, yet effectively, erase the stains from your enamel.
