Whitening Strips Can Help Maintain Your Smile After a Professional Whitening Treatment

Posted .

The natural processes of aging and a habit of consuming dark beverages and foods can cause stains on your teeth. This is even more likely to be a problem if you use tobacco products or if you procrastinate your regular dental cleaning at Chandler Dental Excellence.

When stains manage to deeply penetrate your teeth, the only way to safely and effectively remove them is to have a professional whitening treatment administered by Dr. Kerry Taylor.

Once our potent whitening agents and professional techniques have restored the white luster of your smile, you will still need to take steps to maintain it. Cutting back on certain foods and beverages will certainly help. Occasionally using whitening strips can also remove future surface stains before they have a chance to penetrate your teeth.

The clear, plastic strips 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. When using the strips, you need to avoid drinking, eating, or chewing gum.

When you’re shopping for whitening strips in Chandler, Arizona, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This means that the product in question has been reviewed, tested, and researched to meet rigorous guidelines for safe oral use.

It’s important to remember that the concentration of topical hydrogen peroxide on whitening strips is only strong enough to brighten minor surface stains on tooth enamel. If stains do manage to penetrate your teeth, you will likely need professional measures to fully remove them.
