Stains that develop on the surfaces of the teeth in your smile can leave you feeling socially awkward and uncomfortable with your appearance. Minor surface stains can be removed by a dental cleaning and polishing at our dental practice in Provo, Utah. However, more significant dental stains will require one of our dentists to perform a dental bleaching treatment.

The professional techniques and whitening agents he use can safely remove dental stains from deep within tooth enamel. Once your teeth have been fully whitened you can then maintain your bright smile with one of the whitening toothpastes sold in stores.

Most brands use a mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide as the primary whitening agent. Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste each day can help remove minor surface stains before they have a chance saturate your tooth enamel.

It’s important that you only use a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This small logo, printed on the package, indicates that the oral hygiene product has been subjected to rigorous research and testing for safe oral use.

If you live in the Provo, Utah, area and you are struggling with dental staining problems, we invite you to call 801-373-2060 to explore your whitening options at Robinson Wolfgramm Dental. Drs. Reed Robinson, Taylor Robinson,  and Owen Wolfgramm look forward to helping you smile!
