Dental stains often start out as a mild discoloration on the surfaces of your teeth. As time goes on, these stains can gradually start to penetrate deeper into the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel. This can leave you with an increasingly stained smile.

In a situation like this, you should strongly consider scheduling a whitening consultation at Gentle Family Dentistry & Orthodontics. Dr. Sage White and his staff have the extensive training needed to help you find the safest way to restore the white appearance of your teeth.

Whitening toothpastes and whitening strips can be a very convenient method for removing surface stains before they can penetrate your tooth enamel. Unfortunately, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in these products will not be strong enough to improve more significant dental stains.

When shopping for whitening toothpaste or whitening strips you should look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This small logo indicates that the ADA has tested, researched, and certified the product for safe oral use.

If the teeth in your smile suffer from more significant dental stains, you might need Dr. Sage White to perform a dental bleaching treatment. This can effectively remove stains from deep within tooth enamel without risking harm to your teeth or gums.

If you live in the Cedar City, Utah, area and you are struggling to improve your stained smile, you should call 435-586-9991 to schedule a whitening consultation at Gentle Family Dentistry & Orthodontics.
