Many patients struggling with chronic dental staining problems experience a diminished sense of self-confidence and sometimes limit their smile to hide their yellow teeth. This drives some individuals to experiment with the tooth whitening products available at the retail level.

Unfortunately, most of these items may use a mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide as their primary whitening agent, which often proves ineffective for removing significant dental stains. In frustration some people will start to overuse the whitening product which could potentially irritate gums and harm teeth.

If you have been struggling to deal with your stained teeth, you should first consider scheduling an appointment with our doctor, Dr. Brian Carp. The years of experience and special training he has received can quickly assess the severity of your dental stains to determine the safest method for whitening your smile.

In many cases like this a dental bleaching treatment can remove dental stains from deep within your tooth enamel without harming your mouth.

Once your white smile has been fully restored our doctor might recommend occasionally using whitening toothpaste to address minor dental stains that develop between your dental checkups. Just make sure that you are only using a brand that have been approved by the American Dental Association.
