Stains on your smile can leave you feeling self-conscious in many of life’s social situations. Sometimes minor surface stains can be removed with store-bought whitening products. However, moderate to deeply stained teeth will need professional measures. After your dentists, Drs. Ben Vela & Allan Ng, whitens your teeth with our professional tooth bleaching treatment, you will still need to take measures to maintain the whiteness of your smile.

Adding a whitening toothpaste to your daily oral hygiene routine is an easy way to maintain your smile’s luster. The concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste is only strong enough to whiten minor surface stains. This is more of a preventative measure than an effective treatment that reverses moderate or deeply stained tooth enamel.

When you’re shopping for whitening toothpaste in Corpus Christi, Texas, you should only consider a brand that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This means that the whitening toothpaste has been reviewed, tested and researched to meet rigorous guidelines for safety and effectiveness.

If you have stained teeth in your smile, or if you’re looking for the best method to maintain their brightness, you should call Vela Dental Centers Southside at 361.994.4900 to seek professional advice.
