The enamel is receptive to stains from multiple sources such as consuming dark food and drinks, tobacco use or even the natural processes of aging. Minor stains are often easier to brighten than stains that extend deep into the enamel layer. How deeply your teeth are stained will directly influence the whitening products and procedures needed to give you the bright smile you want.

Many people with minor stains on their teeth like adding whitening toothpaste to their daily oral hygiene routine. This can be a very simple way to reduce minor surface stains between dental cleaning appointments.
Just keep in mind that the mild concentrations of hydrogen peroxide in whitening toothpaste is only strong enough to brighten minor surface stains. Moderate to deeply stained will require stronger measures.
When shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should always look for the American Dental Association 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 store. Dr. [doctor_name] offers a dental bleaching procedure that can whiten deep stains safely and effectively.
