Even occasional tobacco use introduces a plethora of tar and chemicals to your mouth. In a short amount of time these things can have a profound negative effect on the health of your mouth as well as the general appearance of your teeth.

Individuals who use tobacco products on a frequent basis are at even greater risk of suffering from these problems. Frequent consumption of dark beverages like tea, coffee and cola can also add to dental staining problems.

It’s also worth noting that the retail tooth whitening products sold in stores often prove ineffective for addressing tobacco stained teeth. Some can even irritate your gums and harm your tooth enamel.

If your teeth have been significantly stained by tobacco use, and dark beverages, you should consider scheduling a dental bleaching treatment with a dentist like Dr. Robert Jackson.

The treatment process begins with him taking measures to protect your gums from the powerful whitening agents. Once this is done he will pour a small amount of concentrated dental bleach into special trays that match the general curve of your bite pattern. They will be inserted into your mouth along with a small suction wand.

The powerful whitening agents will then start to permeate the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel to remove the dental stains. Once it is done Dr. Robert Jackson might also use a special ultraviolet light to enhance the gleam of your teeth.

If you live in the Carrollton, Texas, area and you have been struggling with chronic dental stains, you should call 972-492-1064 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at Jackson Dental.
