Many people struggle with stains on their teeth. A stained smile can leave you feeling self-conscious and wanting to explore your whitening options. Fortunately, Dr. Alex S. Abernathy is highly trained and has years of experience helping people find the bright, white smile they’ve always wanted.

Brushing your teeth twice a day with a brand of whitening toothpaste is a popular way to reduce minor stains on your teeth. Just keep in mind that the concentration of hydrogen peroxide whitening agents in whitening toothpastes will not be strong enough to whiten moderately or deeply stained teeth. It is also not an overnight process.

Wearing whitening strips on their teeth is a convenient way for people on the go to brighten their smile. Just like whitening toothpaste, the whitening strips can really only help remove minor stains.

Dental bleaching gels use stronger concentrations of whitening agents than whitening toothpaste or strips. These whitening agents can often brighten moderately stained teeth, but are rarely effective at whitening deeply stained teeth.

Deeply stained teeth can rarely be completely whitened by the whitening products sold in stores. Fortunately, Dr. Alex S. Abernathy can administer a dental bleaching procedure that can safely and effectively whiten even the deepest stains on teeth.

If you would like to explore your whitening options, you should call Lakeland Dental Care at 601-981-8166 to schedule an appointment.
