Smile stains that result from tobacco use, dark foods and dark beverages can hamper your self-confidence. When these dark shades penetrate deep into your tooth enamel, the whitening products sold in stores might not be strong enough to completely remove the stains. Even worse, some of them could potentially harm your teeth or gums.

Fortunately, a whitening consultation at Dayley Family Dental can help you safely and effectively restore your bright smile.

Brushing your teeth each day with a whitening toothpaste approved by the American Dental Association can help remove surface stains before they can penetrate your tooth enamel. Just remember that the concentration of hydrogen peroxide whitening agents will not be strong enough to remove deep stains from your teeth.

Whitening strips can also be convenient and helpful for removing surface stains. They can whiten your smile while you go about your day. Just like whitening toothpaste, the whitening strips are only strong enough to remove minor surface stains and they cannot brighten a deeply stained smile.

A dental bleaching treatment administered at Dayley Family Dental is the safest way to effectively remove stains that have penetrated your tooth enamel. Once your smile has been professionally whitened, Dr. Blake Dayley can help you understand what retail-grade whitening methods can help maintain the luster of your smile.

If you live in the Boise, Idaho, area and you are struggling with a stained smile, you should call 208-321-1141 to set up a whitening consultation with Dr. Blake Dayley.
