Nothing can ruin a beautiful smile quite like a dental stain—especially one that shows at the front of your smile. Stains can be yellow,teeth whitening brown, or even streaks of white across the enamel. Our dentist, Dr. Nekia Staley-Neither, at Special Care Dentistry in Landover and Suitland, MD, can fix your dental stains with professional teeth whitening. Find out what to expect when you see your dentist for this popular, simple, and quick cosmetic treatment.

Why Do Dental Stains Appear?
Dental stains are most often caused by eating certain foods and drinking certain liquids that stain the teeth. Some substances, like blueberries and wine, have strong pigments that can attach to the tooth enamel. Tooth staining is more likely to happen if the enamel has weakened, which is sometimes a part of the aging process. Dental stains can also be caused by medications or trauma (injury) to a tooth. When there’s a crack in the tooth, discoloration can show up along the line.

Let Your Dentist Bleach Away Your Dental Stains
Some dental stains won’t go away by simply brushing—even if you are using whitening toothpaste. Over the counter whitening products rarely work, and if they do they take a very long time to show results. Your best bet is to see a Landover and Suitland dentist for professional teeth whitening.

Goodbye Stains, Hello Bright, White Smile
Your dentist will carefully examine your smile to ensure that you’ll benefit from bleaching. If so, a dental-grade whitening gel will be applied to your teeth and stay on for about an hour to an hour and a half. When finished, your dentist will remove the gel, polish your teeth, and introduce you to your brighter smile. After you visit your dentist for the whitening appointment, you can expect the results to last for up to four or five years as long as you go in for regular cleanings.
