Having Dr. Eli J. Lawrence administer a dental bleaching treatment is often the most effective method for safely removing dental stains from your teeth. The special tools, professional techniques, and potent whitening agents at his disposal can excise stains from your tooth enamel without risking harm to your teeth or soft oral tissues.

Even after your teeth have been fully whitening it is still possible for dental stains to redevelop on your teeth. Taking some special measures to prevent this from happening will significantly increase your chances of maintaining a white smile for many years to come.

To aid in this effort, it would be wise to cut back on dark foods and limit your consumption of dark beverages. If you do occasionally drink coffee, tea, or dark soft drinks, you might want to try using a straw.

If you do notice minor surface stains developing on your teeth, you might want to try using a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips that have been approved by the American Dental Association. The small ADA logo on the packaging indicates that the product has been tested and researched for safe oral use.

If you live in the Chicago, Illinois, area and you have significant dental stains on the teeth in your smile, you should call 312-236-9895 to schedule a whitening consultation at Eli Lawrence, DDS.
