When stains saturate your teeth it can leave you with a dull, yellow stained smile. The deeper the dental stains penetrate in the tooth enamel the more difficult they will be to remove. Significant stains might not be removed by the whitening products sold in stores. To find the most effective whitening method, you should consider scheduling a whitening consultation with Dr. Charles Peter.

During the appointment, Dr. Charles Peter will examine your teeth to determine the severity of the stains in your teeth. Then, he will present you with the most applicable method for whitening your smile.  

Minor surface stains can sometimes be improved by a dental cleaning and polishing. Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste, that’s been approved by the American Dental Association, can then help keep future stains from developing.

If your teeth suffer from more significant dental stains, Dr. Charles Peter might need to administer a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents he uses can penetrate deep into tooth enamel to effectively remove stains. The professional tools and techniques involved will also protect your teeth and gums from harm.

Dr. Charles Peter can also advise you on new daily habits to prevent future stains from developing on your teeth. This could include things like cutting back on certain dark foods such as chocolate, and dark berries. Cutting back on dark beverages like coffee, and tea, or choosing to drink them through a straw can also pay significant dividends.

Using whitening toothpaste or whitening strips that have been approved by the ADA can help remove minor dental stains from the surfaces of your teeth. This will go a long way toward preserving your professionally whitened smile.
