Teeth may look completely solid at first glance, but in actuality the surface of each tooth is porous. These pores soak up the pigments from dark-colored foods and drinks, such as coffee, tea and red wine, as well as tobacco products. This stains your teeth.

While commercial whitening products can help reduce surface stains on teeth, they do not affect the deeper stains in your tooth enamel. These deeper stains need professional-grade whitening treatments to remove, often requiring in-office whitening or take-home treatments from your dentist.

If you have stubborn tooth stains that can’t be removed with over the counter whitening products, come see our talented dentist, Dr. Robert Hauptman. Our team can help effectively (and safely!) whiten your teeth with appropriate techniques and technology. For many patients, Gluckstadt Family Dentistry offers the professional-grade whitening agents necessary to remove years’ worth of deep enamel discoloration.

After professional whitening treatments, many individuals choose to use a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips that have earned the ADA Seal of Acceptance to maintain their white smile. This helps prevent further surface stains from developing on teeth while ensuring that the product quality is high.
