Many people struggling with dental stains will reach out to Dr. Kenneth Schweizer to find the most effective method of safely whitening their smile. In many cases, moderate to severely stained tooth enamel cannot be improved by the whitening products sold in stores.

To fully restore the white luster of your smile, Dr. Kenneth Schweizer might recommend a dental bleaching treatment. The professional tools, techniques, and potent whitening agents Dr. Kenneth Schweizer uses can safely remove stains that have deeply penetrated the tooth enamel.

Once your smile has been professionally whitened, Dr. Kenneth Schweizer can then help you identify the measures needed to preserve its appearance.

Brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste can help remove minor surface stains before they have the chance to saturate your smile. Just keep in mind that the concentration of hydrogen peroxide whitening agents isn’t enough to whiten severely stained teeth.

Whitening strips are another popular and convenient option for removing surface stains. They are basically clear, plastic strips that have been treated with a special topical form of hydrogen peroxide. You can conveniently wear them as you go about your day and the casual observer won’t even notice you have them on your teeth. While the whitening strips are in your mouth, you should abstain from eating, drinking, or using tobacco products.

Before purchasing a brand of whitening toothpaste and whitening strips, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. Only oral hygiene products that have met the ADA’s stringent guidelines are approved to use this official logo.
