Would you like a bright white smile? Are you looking for a way to deal with teeth that suffer from minor staining at home? If so you might want to try using a tooth whitening toothpaste.

Your regular dental checkup and cleaning usually includes a tooth polishing procedure as part of the cleaning. This procedure is effective at removing mild surface stains. However if you enjoy food and drinks that cause minor stains, then tooth whitening toothpaste can help maintain your white smile between your dental cleaning sessions.

Most manufacturers use a mild form of peroxide bleach as their primary bleaching agent. When selecting a particular brand you should look for one that has the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal insures that the ADA has researched and tested the product for safety and effectiveness.

Keep in mind that whitening toothpaste will only deal with minor stains. If you have moderate to deeply stained teeth you may want to try our in-office tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of bleaching agents in our procedure is the most effective way to remove stains from your teeth.

You should always talk to your dentist before starting any tooth whitening regimen. If you have questions about selecting a tooth whitening toothpaste, or you are curious about other tooth whitening options, please feel free to call us at 334-745-6393 to schedule an appointment.
