Dental stains that appear on the teeth in your smile can affect your self-esteem and leave you feeling socially awkward. They can be caused by several different things such as aging, dark beverages, and frequently consuming dark beverages.

At the same time tobacco use can also be a potent source of significant dental stains. The tar and other chemicals introduced to the mouth can leave microscopic stains on the surfaces of your teeth. If they’re not removed on a regular basis these minor dental stains can quickly start to saturate your tooth enamel, leaving you with a dull, yellow, and unappealing smile.
