A smile that has been stained by the passage of time and dark foods and beverages can leave you feeling awkward in social situations. Many people with moderate to deeply stained teeth will reach out to Dr. Tyler Carlson for a professional dental bleaching treatment. Even after your smile has been whitened you will still need to actively work to maintain its brightness and luster.

Using whitening strips can work to remove minor surface stains. The clear, plastic strips have been treated with a special topical form of hydrogen peroxide. You can conveniently wear them as you go about your day, and the casual observer won’t even notice you have them on your teeth. While the whitening strips are in your mouth, you will need to avoid drinking, eating and using tobacco products.

It’s worth noting that whitening strips can only brighten minor stains on teeth. Deeply stained tooth enamel will require stronger measures. The safest and most effective way to whiten deeply stained teeth is to have our dentist administer a dental bleaching treatment.
