Stains that develop on the surfaces of the teeth in your smile can leave you feeling socially awkward and uncomfortable with your outward appearance. Minor surface stains can be removed with a dental cleaning and polishing at Bertha D. Bravo, Dentist PC. However, more significant staining issues will require Dr. Bertha Bravo to perform a dental bleaching treatment.

The professional techniques and whitening agents she uses can safely remove stains from deep within your tooth enamel. Once your teeth have been fully whitened, you can then maintain your newly whitened smile with a retail-grade whitening toothpaste.

Most brands use a mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide as the primary whitening agent. Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste each day will remove minor surface stains before they have a chance penetrate deeper into the tooth enamel.

You should only consider whitening toothpastes that have earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This small logo printed on the package signifies that the toothpaste has been subjected to rigorous research and testing for use in a daily oral hygiene regimen.

If you live in the Hempstead, New York, area and you are struggling with a dull, yellow smile, you should call 516-485-1145 to set up a whitening consultation at Bertha D. Bravo, Dentist PC.
