It’s an unfortunate truth that most of the whitening products sold on store shelves lack the potency to do more than remove surface stains from the tooth enamel. If you have more significant stains on your teeth, you will need to have your teeth professionally whitened at Country Club Dental.

Our potent dental bleaching agents and our professional tools and techniques can safely remove stains from deep within tooth enamel.

With your lustrous white smile fully restored, you can then prevent future surface stains from penetrating your teeth with whitening toothpaste or whitening strips.

Whitening toothpaste uses dental-grade hydrogen peroxide to remove minor surface stains. You can brush with it each evening to prevent stains that were accumulated during the day from penetrating the microscopic textures of your tooth enamel.

Whitening strips are basically clear, plastic strips that have been treated with a special topical form of hydrogen peroxide. You can conveniently wear them as you go about your day and the casual observer won’t even notice you have them on your teeth.

You might want to also consider cutting back on dark foods and only drinking dark beverages through a straw. This will reduce the potential for staining on a daily basis.

If you live in the Cameron Park, California, area and you’re concerned about how to safely maintain your white smile, you can always call 530.677.4457 to schedule a whitening consultation with Dr. Sonny Afshar.
