Using Whitening Toothpaste in Your Oral Hygiene Routine

Posted .

Many people struggle with stains on their teeth. A stained smile can leave you feeling self-conscious and wanting to explore your whitening options. Fortunately, Dr. Gregory Stahr is highly trained and has years of experience helping people find the bright, white smile they’ve always wanted.

There are a variety of strategies that help people brighten their teeth. They range from everyday habits to one-time visits to the dentist’s office. Brushing your teeth twice a day with a brand of whitening toothpaste is a popular way to reduce minor stains on your teeth. Just keep in mind that the concentration of hydrogen peroxide whitening agents in whitening toothpastes will not be strong enough to whiten moderate or deeply stained teeth. It also works best if used consistently over time.

You should look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance before purchasing any brand of whitening toothpaste. The seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

Deeply stained teeth can’t be effectively brightened by whitening toothpaste. In these cases, Dr. Gregory Stahr can administer a dental bleaching procedure that can safely and effectively whiten moderate to deeply stained teeth.

It is important to consult a dentist before you begin any whitening regimen. If you would like to explore your whitening options, please feel free to call All Stahr Dental PSC at 859.278.9391 to schedule an appointment.
