The tooth enamel layer on each of your teeth has microscopic textures that can trap tiny particles from the dark foods and beverages you consume. Along with the natural processes of aging or the occasional tobacco use, you could end up with a dull, yellow smile. Fortunately, Dr. Drs. Paul and Faith Tetting has the training and experience to help restore your bright, white smile.

Brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association helps remove surface stains. This is also a convenient way to maintain your smile’s brightness after a dental bleaching treatment. It’s important to note that the hydrogen peroxide concentration of whitening toothpaste can only brighten minor stains. This means it’s more effective at maintaining a smile that has already been professionally whitened.

Applying whitening strips to the teeth in your smile can also help remove surface stains before they have a chance to set into the tooth enamel. You simply apply them to your teeth as you go about your day. Since they are made of a clear, plastic material, the casual observer will struggle to even spot them.

Dental bleaching gels can help remove moderate stains from your teeth. Still, they will not be strong enough to improve deeply stained teeth or teeth that have been dulled by tobacco use. At the same time, the whitening agent could potentially harm your gums.

The most effective method to safely remove stains from your teeth and restore the white luster of your smile is to have a dental bleaching treatment administered at Tetting & Tetting, D.D.S.. Our professional tools, techniques and potent whitening agents can fully eradicate stains from deep within tooth enamel.
