If your smile suffers from unsightly stains, it can leave you feeling awkward about your appearance. Many people with a problem like this will investigate their whitening options at North Texas Dental. This whitening consultation is a wise move as many retail-strength whitening products lack the potency to improve moderate to deep stains. Some of the stronger options can potentially cause harm to your teeth and gums.

To fully whiten a smile in this condition, Drs. Nguyen, Fuhrmann, and Draper might recommend a professional dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents, professional tools, and techniques that they use are the most effective way to remove stains from the tooth enamel.

With your white smile fully restored, you will need to take measures to prevent future stains from setting into your tooth enamel. While cutting back on dark foods and beverages and tobacco cessation will certainly help, you might want to also brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste to remove surface stains on a daily basis.

When shopping for a whitening toothpaste, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

If you live in the Sherman, Texas, area and you are struggling to deal with a significantly stained smile, you should call 903-893-2800 to schedule a whitening consultation with our dentists at North Texas Dental.
