In most cases where tooth enamel has been affected by moderate to significant dental stains, the consumer grade whitening products in the store simply prove insufficient for whitening your smile. In order to truly whiten your teeth without harming them or your gums, you will need to have Dr. Drew Hines perform a dental bleaching treatment.

This professional method of tooth whitening can safely remove significant dental stains from the teeth in your smile.

Afterward, you will need to take measures to prevent future dental stains from developing. This can involve several different things, including limiting your consumption of dark beverages. When you do drink a dark liquid, it might also be helpful to use a straw.  

There are some retail tooth whitening products that might help remove minor dental stains before they have a chance to worsen. Whitening strips that have been approved by the American Dental Association, can help you preserve your white smile.

Most approved brands use a clear sheet of plastic that has been treated with a topical form of hydrogen peroxide. While they are in your mouth, you will also need to avoid drinking, eating, or chewing gum.

If you live in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area and you are struggling to deal with significant dental stains on your teeth, you should call 704-366-3526 to set up a consultation at Drew Hines, DMD.
