A smile that has dulled or taken on a shade of yellow can be embarrassing. While there are several different ways to remove stains from your teeth, not all are safe or effective. A whitening consultation at Saigh Family Dental can be of great value to you. The training and experience he has can help you explore the safest and most effective method of brightening your smile.

Brushing your teeth twice a day with a brand of whitening toothpaste is a popular way to reduce minor stains on the teeth in your smile. Just keep in mind that the concentration of hydrogen peroxide whitening agents can never be strong enough to whiten moderate or deeply stained teeth.

Using retail-grade whitening strips can be a convenient way to whiten your smile while you go about your day. Just like whitening toothpaste, the whitening strips are only strong enough to remove minor surface stains.

Whitening gels use stronger concentrations of whitening agents than whitening toothpaste or strips. These gels are usually potent enough to brighten moderately stained teeth, but they could prove harmful to your gums and tooth enamel.

For teeth suffering from moderate-to-severe stains, Dr. Frederick M. Saigh, III will often suggest having a dental bleaching treatment administered. The potent dental bleach he uses along with his professional tools and techniques are the safest and most effective ways to remove stains from within tooth enamel.
