If you had a powerful microscope to look at your teeth, you would notice the tiny pores and textures that cover your tooth enamel. Though tiny, these pores can trap pigments from food and drink and cause staining deep in the tooth enamel. Whatever the severity of your tooth stains may be, our dentist and team and help you select an appropriate treatment for teeth whitening to brighten your smile.

The simplest and most accessible method to remove minor tooth stains from the tooth enamel is to pick up a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips, which are store-bought products that contain a hydrogen peroxide formula to lighten minor stains on the tooth surfaces.

Another option for moderate stains is a dental bleaching gel with more potent whitening agents that you pour into a dental tray and then insert in your mouth for a few hours to lighten stains.

Deeply stained tooth enamel is often too stubborn to be affected by the whitening products sold in stores and may require professional teeth whitening treatment provided by our dentist. Dr. Faith Cousins has the training and professional techniques to whiten your teeth in as little as one treatment with safe and effective tactics.
