The natural processes of aging, as well as the dark foods and drinks you consume each day, can gradually start to stain your tooth enamel. The whitening products or treatments needed to brighten your smile again will vary depending on the depth and cause of the stains.

It’s always a good idea to consult with your Mill Creek General Dentistry dentist before starting any new whitening program.

Brushing your teeth twice a day with a whitening toothpaste is a convenient way to maintain your white smile between dental cleaning appointments. However, the concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste isn’t potent enough to brighten moderate to deeply stained teeth.

When you are shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

If your teeth suffer with moderate to deep stains, Dr. Kerry Olszewski can administer a dental bleaching treatment to safely and effectively whiten your smile. Once your teeth have regained their full brightness and luster, you can maintain your new smile by brushing with whitening toothpaste.

If you have stained teeth and you would like to understand the best method for maintaining your white smile, you should call Mill Creek General Dentistry at 425-337-5549 for a consultation appointment regarding teeth whitening in Mill Creek, Washington.
