Minor surface stains on your smile can gradually start to penetrate the tooth enamel, causing more significant stains. Once this happens, only professional methods will be strong enough to restore the whiteness of your smile. Removing minor surface stains in a timely manner can prevent this from happening.

Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste is a popular and convenient way to brighten surface stains. Just keep in mind that the concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste isn’t potent enough to brighten moderate to deeply stained teeth.

When you are shopping for whitening toothpaste in Dearborn, Michigan, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

Deep stains on the tooth enamel can rarely be whitened by the products available in the store. Fortunately, your dentist, Dr. Robert Farber, can administer a professional dental bleaching treatment that can whiten deep stains safely and effectively.

If you are struggling to remove stains from your smile, you should call Dearborn West Dental at 313-562-5610 to explore your whitening options.
