Simple things like soft drinks, dark beverages, and tobacco use can cause minor surface stains to develop on your teeth. If they’re not removed in a timely manner these minor dental stains can start to permeate deeper into your tooth enamel.

In a situation like this, the most effective method for whitening your smile is to have Dr. Jacqueline S. Reid perform a dental bleaching treatment at his Chatham, New Jersey clinic. Afterward, you will still need to take daily measures to preserve the bright luster of your teeth.

Cutting back on dark foods and beverages can certainly be beneficial. You might want to also try using a whitening toothpaste that’s been approved by the American Dental Association. This can help remove minor dental stains between your regular dental exam and cleaning at Dr. Jacqueline S. Reid’s clinic.

Be sure to look for the small ADA logo printed on the package. This represents that the whitening toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness. Only products that meet rigorous guidelines are considered safe for use as part of a daily oral hygiene routine.

If you live in the Chatham, New Jersey, area and you’ve been struggling to whiten your stained smile, we invite you to call 973.635.9456 to a dental bleaching treatment at Jacqueline S. Reid DDS.
