The 5 Benefits of Dental Scale and Polish

If those stubborn stains, plaque, and tartar on your teeth reduce your opportunity to smile, consult the dentist to restore your confidence.

Debris that form of your teeth is very difficult to remove through normal brushing and flossing. There are further reasons why stains form on your teeth, and the dentist will be able to tell you exactly why. It is more than likely to be the fact that your oral routine isn’t strong enough to cater to strong white teeth. A positive oral routine is essential. Without it, it becomes very difficult to keep your teeth white. Typically, your teeth could be degrading for one of the following reasons:

  • Poor dental hygiene
  • A diet consisting of dark solids and liquids
  • Consumption of smoking and tobacco products
  • Trauma or Disease
  • Other medical treatments
