Things like dark beverages and tobacco use can turn your smile an unsightly shade of yellow or brown. When this happens, the changes to your outward appearance can inspire you to investigate your options for whitening your smile. While the bold marketing claims proclaimed by some oral hygiene manufacturers might tempt you to try one of their whitening products, you will likely be underwhelmed with the results.

Before engaging in any whitening program, you should schedule a consultation session with Dr. Howard Glassman at his Diamond Bar, California clinic. The training and experience he possesses can help you find the most effective method for safely removing the discoloration from your tooth enamel.

In many cases, the best method is to have Dr. Howard Glassman administer a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents and professional techniques he employs can remove set-in stains from your teeth, without risking harm to your teeth or gums.

With your smile professionally whitened, you can then take measures to prevent future stains. This can involve abstaining from tobacco, as well as cutting back on dark beverages, and certain foods. You can prevent new surface stains from developing by brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste.

When shopping for whitening toothpaste, you need to look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This logo can only be printed on oral hygiene products that have met stringent guidelines for safe and effective oral use.

If you live in the Diamond Bar, California area and you have stained teeth in your smile, you should call 909-860-0321 to set up a whitening consultation with Dr. Howard Glassman.
