Your tooth enamel has microscopic pores that can trap staining particles. If these surface stains are not removed on a daily basis, they set deeper and deeper into your teeth. Once this happens, it could take professional measures to fully eradicate the stains from your smile.

You should always consult with your dentist, Dr. David A. Browne, before starting any whitening program. The extensive training and experience he has can help you find the safest and most effective method for whitening your smile in the shortest amount of time.

Brushing your teeth twice a day with a brand of whitening toothpaste is a popular way to reduce minor stains on the teeth in your smile. Just keep in mind that the concentration of hydrogen peroxide whitening agents can never be strong enough to whiten moderate or deeply stained teeth.

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

Deeply stained teeth can’t be effectively brightened by whitening toothpaste. In a situation like this, Dr. David A. Browne will often recommend a dental bleaching treatment. This will safely and effectively whiten your teeth. Then you can use a whitening toothpaste to remove future surface stains before they have a chance to permeate the enamel of the teeth in your smile.

If you have been struggling to remove stains from your teeth, you should call David A. Browne, DDS, PC at 815-344-6811 to explore your whitening options in McHenry, Illinois.
