Significant stains and shades of yellow on the teeth visible in your smile can hinder your self-esteem. Unfortunately, many of the retail-grade whitening products sold on store shelves lack the concentration of whitening agents to effectively remove stains from within your tooth enamel.

For a smile affected by this level of staining, you will need to have Dr. Damon P. Swenson administer a dental bleaching treatment. The professional tools and techniques he uses can remove stains from within tooth enamel without threatening the health of your teeth or gums.

With your white smile fully restored, you can then maintain the luster of your teeth by brushing with a whitening toothpaste. This is essentially a standard abrasive toothpaste that has a specially formulated hydrogen peroxide added to it.

When you’re shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This logo can only be printed on oral hygiene products that have met the ADA’s rigorous guidelines for safe and effective use.

Whitening toothpaste can remove minor surface stains before they have a chance to set in. At the same time, you can also help maintain your white smile by limiting your consumption of dark foods and beverages and abstaining from tobacco use.
