If you have discolored teeth that refuse to whiten even after rigorous use of over-the-counter whitening products, you likely have stained enamel. While it doesn’t necessarily harm the health of your enamel, stains are much more difficult to get rid of.

With that in mind, let’s look at a few of the options Dr. Kenneth Kirk offers to fix stained enamel and get you the white smile you deserve.

Whitening strips can be applied to the teeth in your smile as a convenient way to improve minor surface stains. You can apply them to your teeth as you go about your day. Since they are made of a clear, plastic material the casual observer won’t even notice you’re wearing them!

Dental bleaching gel can be used at home to whiten moderately stained teeth. However, it will not be strong enough to improve deeply stained teeth or teeth that have been dulled by tobacco use.

Here at Houston Cosmetic & Family Dental Associates, your dentist can perform professional teeth bleaching treatment. This is the safest, most effective way to whiten even the deepest stains on teeth.

If you want to ensure your smile stays white after a whitening treatment, then it’s suggested you use a whitening toothpaste as part of your daily oral health routine.
