It’s not uncommon for age, tobacco use, or dark foods and drinks, to dull your once bright white smile. Many people with dull or stained teeth choose to investigate their whitening options. The depth of staining on the teeth will greatly influence what tooth whitening products are right for you.

Before starting any teeth whitening regimen you should first talk to your dentist. They are trained to help guide and assist you in meeting your tooth whitening goals.

Many people like to use a whitening toothpaste to manage minor staining issues between dental cleanings. When selecting a particular brand you should look for one that has earned the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance, for safety and effectiveness.

If your teeth are moderately or severely stained the mild concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste won’t be strong enough to resolve the problem. In a situation like this, you should ask about our in-office tooth bleaching procedure.
