In many cases, a dull smile suffers from stains that are too deep in the tooth enamel to be whitened by consumer-grade whitening products. To fully whiten your smile, your dentist, Dr. Brian Miller, might suggest having a dental bleaching treatment in Houston, Texas. The potent whitening agents he uses are the safest and most effective way to remove stains from deep within tooth enamel.
Once your teeth have been safely and effectively whitened, you can then maintain your bright smile between dental cleanings with whitening toothpaste.
While there are some minor variations between the brands, most whitening toothpastes use a special hydrogen peroxide whitening agent. Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste each day will remove minor surface stains before they have a chance to penetrate deeper into the tooth enamel.
When shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should only consider buying a brand that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This seal signifies that the toothpaste has been subjected to rigorous research and testing for use in a daily oral hygiene routine. This way you know the product you are using is safe for regular use.
