When you use tobacco products the tar and other chemicals introduced into your mouth can affect you in a variety of ways. Not only can this have a negative effect on your medical and oral health, it can also cause significant dental stains to appear on your teeth.
While you might feel tempted to experiment with the tooth whitening products sold in stores, you will likely find that they are not potent enough to fully remove significant dental stains. It’s also worth noting that excessive use of these products can also harm teeth and other oral tissues.
Once your teeth have been significantly affected by this level of dental staining the only safe and effective option for whitening your teeth is to have a dental bleaching treatment performed by a dentist like Dr. Richard Dycus.
This process begins with him protecting your gums from direct exposure to the potent dental bleaching agents. At that point a small amount of dental whitening agent will then be poured into special trays that will be inserted in your mouth along with a small suction wand. You will need to bite down lightly for a few minutes as the dental grade bleach removes the dental stains.
Afterward, you might want to consider total tobaccos cessation. Not only will this help preserve the white appearance of your teeth, it will also reduce your chances of suffering future health problems.
