Significant dental stains that develop on your teeth from tobacco use and the frequent consumption of dark beverages can often prove too severe for retail whitening products. The mild concentrations of hydrogen peroxide in these items simply cannot affect dental stains that have saturated deep into the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel.
If you find yourself in a situation like this the wisest course of action is to schedule a dental bleaching treatment with a dentist like Dr. Chris A. Gipe. This outpatient treatment can effectively remove significant dental stains from your teeth without harming your tooth enamel or gums.
Once he has professionally whitened your teeth you might want to periodically brush your teeth with a quality whitening toothpaste. This might help eliminate minor dental stains before they can once again saturate your tooth enamel.
Just make sure that the whitening toothpaste in question has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The ADA’s logo can only be printed on an oral hygiene product that has been researched and tested to meet rigorous guidelines.
