A smile that has been stained by the passage of time and dark foods and beverages can leave you feeling awkward in social situations. There are a number of different methods for whitening your smile, but the severity of the stains to your tooth enamel will directly dictate which treatment is best for you.

Using a whitening toothpaste when you brush your teeth is a popular and convenient way to brighten minor 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.

Before purchasing any brand of whitening toothpaste, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The seal proves that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

Deep stains on tooth enamel can rarely be whitened by the products available in the store. For deep stains, your Bayside Family Dentistry dentist, Dr. Aram Cazazian, can administer a professional dental bleaching treatment that can whiten deep stains safely and effectively.

If you have a stained smile, you should contact Bayside Family Dentistry at (718) 423-7009 to find the best whitening treatment in Bayside, New York.
