Discolored tooth enamel and chronic staining issues can significantly impair the appearance of your smile. Many people in the Midlothian, Virginia, area struggling with an issue like this will contact Midlothian Dental Arts to explore their options for improving their smile. We have the professional training and experience needed to help you find the most effective way to safely whiten your smile.

Brushing twice a day with whitening toothpaste can be a convenient way to brighten minor surface stains. Unfortunately, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in whitening toothpaste simply won’t be strong enough to eliminate more than surface stains.

Whitening strips can also be occasionally used to maintain a white smile. The clear plastic makes it hard for the casual observer to even notice you’re wearing them. Just like whitening toothpaste, the topical hydrogen peroxide cannot remove moderate to deep stains from the tooth enamel.

The most effective way to safely whiten your smile is to have a dental bleaching treatment administered at Midlothian Dental Arts. The professional techniques and potent whitening agents we use can eradicate deep stains from the tooth enamel and restore the luster of your smile.

If you have other cosmetic imperfections in your smile, we might recommend forgoing dental whitening in lieu of dental veneers. These are special shells crafted from dental-grade porcelain to fit over the faces of each tooth visible in your smile. They are not as susceptible to staining as natural tooth enamel, making it easy to maintain your smile’s appearance going forward.

If you’re suffering with a stained smile, you should call 804-419-5155 to schedule a whitening consultation with Dr. Jeryl Abbott.
