Your tooth enamel is made up of densely packed microscopic mineral crystals. At the same time, certain compounds can stick to your teeth and over time can permeate the microscopic spaces in the enamel, causing stains. Stains on teeth in your smile can leave you self-conscious about your smile and wanting to explore your whitening options.
It’s a good idea to talk to Jackson Dental before starting a new whitening regimen. Our highly trained dental professionals have the knowledge and experience to help you select the safest and most effective whitening products and procedures to meet your whitening goals.
Whitening strips are a convenient way to whiten minor stains on the teeth in your smile. Whitening strips are essentially a clear plastic sheet that has been treated with a topical form of hydrogen peroxide. You can apply them to your teeth and the casual observer won’t even know they are in. While the whitening strips are in your mouth you should abstain from drinking, eating and using tobacco.
Just like whitening toothpaste, the topical hydrogen peroxide whitening agent is only strong enough to brighten minor surface stains on teeth. Moderate to deeply stained teeth, will require stronger measures. Fortunately, Jackson Dental offers a dental bleaching procedure that can whiten deeper stains safely and effectively.
