Teeth may look completely solid, but in reality the surface of your tooth is porous. These pores soak up the pigments from deep-colored foods and drinks, as well as tobacco products. This can leave your teeth looking discolored.

While retail whitening products can help reduce surface stains, they do not affect the deeper stains in your tooth enamel. These require professional-grade whitening treatments to remove. Thus, deep-tooth stains often require in-office whitening or take-home treatments from your dentist.

If you have stubborn dental stains that can’t be removed with retail whitening products, come see our talented dentist, Dr. Christopher Hulen, who can help safely and effectively whiten your teeth with appropriate techniques and technology. For many patients, Hulen Family Dentistry offers the professional-grade whitening agents needed to remove years’ worth of deep enamel stains.

After professional whitening treatments, many individuals choose to use a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips that have earned the Seal of Acceptance from the American Dental Association to maintain their white smile. This helps prevent further surface stains from developing on teeth.
