As time passes, the natural processes of aging and certain daily activities can dull and stain your smile. Fortunately, there is a wide range of whitening products and professional treatments that can whiten stained tooth enamel. The depth of the stains will largely influence the best method called for to improve your smile.

It’s a good idea to consult with your dentist, Dr. Indra Quagliata before you start using a new teeth-whitening product. Your dentist has the extensive training and experience needed to help you safely and effectively whiten your teeth.

Incorporating a whitening toothpaste in your oral hygiene routine is a convenient way to maintain your white smile between dental cleanings. Just keep in mind that the hydrogen peroxide concentration of whitening toothpaste can only brighten minor stains.

Whitening strips can be applied to the teeth in your smile as a convenient way to improve minor surface stains. You can apply them to your teeth as you go about your day. Since they are made of a clear, plastic material the casual observer won’t even notice you’re wearing them!

Dental bleaching gel can be used at home to whiten moderately stained teeth. However, it will not be strong enough to improve deeply stained teeth or teeth that have been dulled by tobacco use.

Here at IQ Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, your dentist can perform professional teeth bleaching treatment. This is the safest, most effective way to whiten even the deepest stains on teeth.

If you have stains on your smile, you should not hesitate to call IQ Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 585-475-0140 to understand your options in Rochester, New York, for a whiter smile.
