It’s not uncommon for the bright white smile you enjoyed in your youth to dull with stains brought upon by aging, tobacco use, or dark foods and drinks. If you feel this way, then chances are good it’s time for you to investigate your tooth whitening options. How deeply your teeth are stained will directly influence what tooth whitening products are right for you.
It’s a good idea to talk to your dentist before starting any tooth whitening regimen. They are trained to help you find the right products or procedures for bright white smile you desire.
Whitening toothpaste is one of the more popular ways to include tooth whitening in your daily oral hygiene routine. Just keep in mind that the peroxide whitening compounds in these toothpastes are only strong enough to resolve minor surface stains.
When shopping for one it’s important to look for a brand that has earned the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal signifies that it has been tested for safety and effectiveness.
If you are dealing with deeply stained teeth, you may want to talk to your dentist about a dental tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of whitening agents used are stronger than anything else available on the market.
