The enamel of the teeth in your smile can be stained from several different sources like dark foods and beverages, tobacco use, and natural processes of aging. How deeply your teeth are stained will determine the best whitening products or procedures needed to give you the whiter smile you want.

It’s a good idea to consult with a dentist at Dean Doles Family Dentistry before starting a new whitening routine. All of our dentists are trained to help you find the most effective whitening products and procedures to whiten your teeth and maintain good oral health.

Whitening strips are made from a clear plastic material that has been treated with a topical form of hydrogen peroxide. When they are applied to your teeth the casual observer can’t even notice them. When using whitening strips you should not drink, eat or use tobacco.

You can only effectively brighten minor surface stains on your teeth with whitening strips. Deep stains on tooth enamel can rarely be whitened by retail level products. At Dean Doles Family Dentistry we offer a dental bleaching procedure that can whiten deep stains safely and effectively.

If you have questions or would like to explore your whitening options, please feel free to call Dean Doles Family Dentistry at 972-727-7269 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to helping you meet your whitening goals!
