Every year millions of Americans struggle to deal with dental stains on the teeth in their smile. This tempts many people to explore the whitening products available in stores. While modern marketing messages might make these products seem safe and effective, many do little more than clear away minor surface stains. Some of the more potent options can potentially cause harm to teeth and gums.

The wisest course of action is to schedule a whitening consultation with our dentist at Simple Smiles Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry in Woodstock, Georgia. We have the training and years of experience needed to help you safely remove deep stains from your tooth enamel.

Some retail-level products like whitening toothpaste or whitening strips as a convenient way to remove minor surface stains. It’s worth noting that these products are more of a maintenance step rather than an effective solution for removing moderate to severe dental stains.

The dental bleaching gels sold in stores use stronger concentrations of whitening agents than whitening toothpaste or whitening strips. While this can improve moderately stained teeth, it could potentially harm your gums and potentially affect the strength of your teeth.

For severely stained teeth, we can administer a dental bleaching treatment. The professional techniques and training we have developed are the most effective way to safely remove stains that have set deeply into tooth enamel.
