Retail Whitening Products Can Help Maintain Your Smile’s Appearance After a Dental Bleaching Treatment

Posted .

Chronic dental stains from dark foods, dark beverages, and tobacco use can leave you feeling uncomfortable with your smile’s appearance. In most of these cases, the retail whitening products sold in stores often lack the potency and effectiveness to safely brighten your teeth.

To address a situation like this, Dr. Nicholas A. Jamison II can administer a dental bleaching treatment. His professional tools and techniques can protect your teeth and gums from harm. Then he can administer the professional strength dental bleach to effectively remove the dental stains from your tooth enamel.

Going forward you might want to cut back on certain foods and limit dark beverages. If you do occasionally drink coffee, tea, or dark soft drinks, you might want to try using a straw. If you use tobacco on a frequent or occasional basis, you should strongly consider a cessation program.

If you do notice minor surface stains developing on your teeth, you might want to try brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste approved by the American Dental Association.

Just keep in mind that the hydrogen peroxide concentration of whitening toothpaste can only brighten minor stains. You should not see it as an effective way to resolve significantly stained teeth.

If you live in the Greeley, Colorado, area and you are struggling with chronic dental stains on the teeth in your smile, you can call 970-506-1122 to schedule a whitening consultation at Nicholas A. Jamison II DDS.
