Your tooth enamel is made up of microscopic mineral structures. This creates pores that can hold onto surface stains. If the stains are not removed on a daily basis, these surface stains can penetrate into the tooth enamel, causing stubborn stains on your smile. One way to prevent this from happening is to brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste in Union Springs, Alabama.

This is also a convenient way to maintain your white smile between dental cleanings. Just keep in mind that the hydrogen peroxide concentration of whitening toothpaste can only brighten minor stains.

You should always look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance before purchasing a particular brand of whitening toothpaste. The seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

If your teeth have moderate-to-severe staining issues, you should talk to your dentist, Dr. Letitia M. Williams, about a dental bleaching treatment. This will safely and effectively whiten your tooth enamel. You can then maintain your bright new smile by brushing your teeth at least once a day with whitening toothpaste.

If you are struggling with stains on the teeth in your smile, you should call 334.738.3111 to schedule an appointment to explore your whitening options at Letitia M. Williams, DDS, LLC.
