Stains on your teeth from dark foods and drink, tobacco use or the natural process of aging can leave you wanting a brighter, whiter smile. The degree of staining on your teeth will determine which whitening products or procedures are called for to restore the white smile you’ve always wanted.

You should always talk to your dentist before starting any tooth whitening program. They can advise you on the products or procedures that can best meet your whitening goals.

Whitening toothpaste is a common and convenient way to remove minor stains as part of your daily hygiene routine. However, the concentration of peroxide whitening agents in these products simple are not strong enough to brighten moderate or deeply stained teeth.

When you are shopping for a whitening toothpaste, make sure to look for American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents that the product in question has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

The concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste can only manage to brighten teeth with minor surface stains. If the teeth in your smile are deeply stained, you should talk to your dentist about a dental tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of whitening agents used are stronger than anything available on the retail level.
