Beware Using Whitening Products without Guidance from your Dentist

Posted .

Even minor dental stains can prove to be a cosmetic embarrassment to your smile’s appearance. This is often the result of consuming daily dark beverages like coffee, tea, and dark colored soft drinks. If these minor surface stains on your teeth aren’t resolved in a reasonable amount of time, they could start to saturate the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel.

Initially, you might be tempted to try one of the many whitening products sold at the retail level. Unfortunately, not all of them are as potent or as safe as they may claim. In a situation like this, the first thing to do is to seek guidance from a professionally trained dentist like Dr. Cory Williams.

After assessing the severity of your dental stains, he can help you understand the safest methods for restoring your white smile.

Many of the whitening toothpastes and whitening strips sold in stores lack the potency to address more significant dental stains. They are best intended to help maintain a white smile or remove minor dental stains before they can penetrate your teeth.

In many cases of significant dental staining, the safest and most effective option is to have Dr. Cory Williams administer a dental bleaching treatment. The professional tools and potent whitening agents he uses can restore your smile’s white appearance, without placing your mouth at undue risk of harm.
