The natural processes of aging along with factors like tobacco use, staining foods and drink can cause unappealing stains on your teeth. How deeply stained your teeth are will directly influence the whitening products or procedures needed to give you a bright, white smile.

Make sure you talk to your dentist before starting any tooth whitening program. They are trained to help you find the right products or procedures for bright white smile you’ve always wanted.

Many people choose to use whitening toothpaste to deal with teeth with minor stains. They are a convenient and popular way to add tooth whitening into your daily oral hygiene routine.

Before selecting a whitening toothpaste, you should look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance, for safety and effectiveness.

Keep in mind that the concentration of the peroxide whitening agents in whitening toothpaste will only be strong enough to brighten minor surface stains. If your teeth are deeply stained, you should talk to your dentist about a dental tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of whitening agents used are stronger than anything else available on the market.
