Your tooth enamel is made up of densely packed microscopic mineral crystals. At the same time, certain compounds can stick to your teeth and over time can permeate the microscopic spaces in the enamel, causing stains. Stains on teeth in your smile can leave you self-conscious about your smile and wanting to explore your whitening options.
It’s a good idea to talk to Ravago Dental before starting a new whitening regimen. Our highly trained dental professionals have the knowledge and experience to help you select the safest and most effective whitening products and procedures to meet your whitening goals.
Whitening toothpaste is a convenient way to brighten minor surface stains on your teeth as part of your oral hygiene routine. However, the concentration of peroxide whitening agents in whitening toothpaste can only brighten minor surface stains. If you have moderate to deeply stained teeth, it will require stronger, more effective measures to brighten your smile.
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 you have moderate to deeply stained teeth, you should talk to Ravago Dental about a dental bleaching procedure that can whiten deep stains safely and effectively.
If you have questions or would like to explore your whitening options, please feel free to call Ravago Dental at 505.292.6414 to schedule an appointment.
