Whitening toothpaste and whitening strips often make bold claims about their overall effectiveness for removing dental stains. Unfortunately, most of these products only use mild concentrations of hydrogen peroxide which can do little more than alleviate minor dental stains on the surfaces of your teeth.
To deal with a more significant case of dental stains you will need to set up a dental bleaching treatment with a doctor like Dr. Gilbert Fernandez. The outpatient treatment session is designed to safely remove significant dental stains that have saturated deep into the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel.
After your white smile has been fully restored, our doctor might advise you to take some simple steps to maintain the appearance of your teeth. Occasionally brushing with a quality whitening toothpaste might help eliminate minor dental stains before they can worsen.
Just make sure that any whitening toothpaste you use has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The small logo can only be printed on an oral hygiene product that has been researched and tested to meet their strict guidelines for safety and effectiveness.
