Stains that have managed to penetrate deep into your tooth enamel can be unsightly and can leave you feeling socially awkward about your appearance. Unfortunately, most consumer-grade whitening products available on store shelves lack the potency to do little more than remove minor surface stains. To truly restore the white luster of your smile without risking harm to your teeth and gums, you will need Dr. Sean Ky to administer a professional dental bleaching treatment at our dental office.
The potent whitening agents and professional techniques she employs can safely and effectively remove stains from deep within your tooth enamel.
Once the luster of your smile has been fully restored, you can then take measures to prevent future stains. This can involve tobacco cessation as well as cutting back on dark beverages and foods. You can prevent new surface stains from developing by brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste.
To find a high-quality, safe whitening toothpaste, you should look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This logo can only be printed on oral hygiene products that have met stringent guidelines for safety and effectiveness.
With these methods in place, you can maintain your smile between your regular dental checkups at our dental office.
If you live in the Pasadena, California, area and you have stained teeth in your smile, you should call 626-792-0448 to set up a whitening consultation with Dr. Sean Ky.
