A white and winning smile plays to your favor in many of life’s social settings. When stains set into your teeth, they can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. The depth of the stains in your tooth enamel will directly influence the whitening method that your dentist, Dr. Sherif Gabr, recommends to safely whiten your smile.

Using whitening toothpaste in your daily oral hygiene routine is a convenient way to brighten minor surface stains. Just keep in mind that the concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste aren’t potent enough to brighten moderate to deeply stained teeth.

Using whitening strips is also a convenient way to whiten your smile. The clear plastic makes it hard for the casual observer to even notice you’re wearing them. Just like whitening toothpaste, the topical hydrogen peroxide will only be strong enough to whiten minor surface stains.

Dental whitening gel employs stronger concentrations of whitening agents than whitening toothpaste or strips. You can apply it to your teeth in the comfort of your own home to whiten moderate stains from your smile.

Dr. Sherif Gabr can administer a dental bleaching treatment to remove deep stains from tooth enamel. This is the safest and most effective method for completely whitening even the darkest stained teeth. Then, you can easily maintain your smile by using whitening toothpaste or whitening strips.
