The surfaces of your teeth have microscopic pores and textures. When you consume dark foods and beverages, tiny dark particles can adhere to these areas. In time, they can set into the tooth enamel, causing stubborn stains on your smile. One way to prevent this is to remove minor surface stains by using whitening strips.
These clear, plastic strips have been treated with a special topical form of hydrogen peroxide. You can conveniently wear them as you go about your day and the casual observer won’t even notice you have them on your teeth. While the whitening strips are in your mouth, you will need to avoid drinking, eating and using tobacco products.
It’s important to keep in mind that the concentration of topical hydrogen peroxide on whitening strips is only strong enough to brighten minor surface stains on tooth enamel. If your smile is significantly stained, you will need a stronger means to effectively whiten your smile. A case like this usually calls for a dental bleaching treatment administered by your dentist, Dr. William Forero.
If you have stained teeth, you should call William Forero DMD, PA at 954-752-4901 to better understand your whitening options in Coral Springs, Florida.
