The dental whitening products available at the retail level often prove insufficient for removing significant dental stains that have saturated tooth enamel. Excessive use of these items could also harm your teeth and irritate soft oral tissues.

If you are struggling to deal with significant stains on your teeth, the wisest course of action is to schedule a dental bleaching treatment with a dentist like Dr. Greg L. Wolfe. The professional strength whitening agents and techniques he uses can safely remove dental stains without risking the health of your mouth.

After your white smile has been restored you will need to take proactive measures to prevent new dental stains from affecting the appearance of your teeth. Cutting back or abstaining dark beverages will go a long way toward preventing new dental stains. If you do want to enjoy an occasional coffee, tea or cola it might also be helpful to use a straw.

Some patients with a professionally whitened smile will occasionally apply tooth whitening strips to their front teeth. Most brands apply a topical form of hydrogen peroxide to a clear sheet of plastic, as the primary whitening agent. Just make sure that they that have been approved by the American Dental Association.
