Anything that can stain a white T-shirt will also stain teeth — and you’ve probably shared that warning – along with common culprits of extrinsic stains (coffee, tea, red wine, soda, berries – and smoking) with your patients.
Though these causes discoloration and darkening, leaving patients looking older than they really are, they are the easiest stains to manage and correct.
A healthy routine of brushing and flossing, along with a whitening treatment plan from you, will help your patients achieve their most beautiful, healthy and confident smiles.
GLO Science, created by Jonathan B. Levine, DMD, presents the perfect solution for stain-removal and on-the-go whitening, anywhere, any time: GLO Professional In-Office Whitening.
As a follow-up, PRO to Go is an excellent stabilizer and maintenance tool that allows patients to drink coffee and tea during the 24 hour post-procedure wait period. According to GLO Science, they are able to paint on some PRO to Go after drinking or eating to prevent stains from seeping into the enamel layers.
Even regarding intrinsic stains, which occur inside the teeth and can develop during a tooth’s formative years or as teeth age (studies show that our teeth darken at least two shades every decade!), whitening can make a significant difference.
Monitor your patients’ enamel health by taking a shade at every hygiene visit and you can then recommend whitening, veneers or cosmetic restorations based on recorded enamel changes.
