Your smile says a lot about you, and a smile that has been dulled by aging or staining issues from dark foods, beverages or tobacco use can leave you feeling self-conscious in social situations. The source and depth of the stains on your teeth, will help to determine which the whitening products or procedures will be required to meet your whitening goals.

You should always consult with North Point Dental Group, LLC before using a new whitening product. Our highly trained dental professionals have the training and experience required to help you find the safest and most effective way to meet your whitening goals.

Brightening minor stains on the teeth in your smile can sometimes be as simple as using a whitening toothpaste in your daily oral hygiene routine. This can be a very simple way to reduce minor surface stains between dental cleaning appointments. Moderate to deeply stained will require stronger measures.

The mild concentrations of hydrogen peroxide in whitening toothpaste is only strong enough to brighten minor surface stains. Moderate to deeply stained will require stronger measures.

When shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should always look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents 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 store. At North Point Dental Group, LLC we offer a dental bleaching procedure that can whiten deep stains safely and effectively.
