Enjoying dark foods and beverages can dull the whiteness of your teeth, leaving you feeling self-conscious in social settings. At the same time, the natural processes of aging or the occasional tobacco use can also cause deep stains in your tooth enamel.

It’s best to consult with your dentist, Dr. Sean Thompson, before trying any new whitening product. The training and experience he has will help you find the safest and most effective method for whitening the stains on your teeth.

Many people find that brushing their teeth with a whitening toothpaste helps maintain the brightness of their teeth. The hydrogen peroxide whitening agents can help improve or maintain whiteness, especially after a professional bleaching procedure or between your regular dental cleanings.

However, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in whitening toothpastes is not strong enough to whiten moderate or deeply stained teeth.

When shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This seal proves that the whitening toothpaste has been tested for safety and effectiveness.
