Dental Stains Caused by Tobacco Use Can Be Difficult to Improve

Posted .

People who use tobacco on a frequent basis are likely familiar with the effect that tar and other chemicals can have on the appearance of their teeth. It’s also worth noting that even occasionally tobacco users can also have significant dental stains appear on the faces of their front teeth.

If you have dental stains from tobacco use, you might be tempted to experiment with the tooth whitening products sold in stores. However, these options will likely prove to be ineffective and frustrating. This is even more likely to be the case if you continue to use tobacco products.

If you find yourself in a situation like this, the safest course of action is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rafah Abdelmonem and his team of dental care specialists. In many of these cases, he can administer a dental bleaching treatment to fully remove tobacco stains from your teeth.

Once this is done, you can help prevent future tobacco stains by fully embracing tobacco cessation. If this isn’t an option for you at this point in your life, you might want to consider brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association. This might remove minor surface stains before they have a chance to redevelop.
