A smile that has been yellowed by dark foods and beverages or tobacco use can leave you feeling socially awkward. While these stains can effectively be removed by a dental bleaching treatment at Mill Creek General Dentistry, you will still need to take measures to prevent future stains. One simple way to do this is to brush your teeth with a brand of whitening toothpaste.

Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste is a popular and convenient way to brighten surface stains. Just keep in mind that the concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste aren’t potent enough to brighten moderate to deeply stained teeth.
When you are shopping for whitening toothpaste in Mill Creek, Washington, 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.

Deep stains on tooth enamel can rarely be whitened by the products available in stores. To safely and effectively remove stains of this magnitude from deep within tooth enamel, you will need your dentist, Dr. Kerry Olszewski, to administer a dental bleaching treatment.

If you have staining issues on the teeth in your smile, you should call 425-337-5549 to schedule a whitening consultation at our dental clinic.
