All About Wearing Whitening Strips to Maintain Your White Smile

The tooth-polishing treatment in your regular dental checkup or the professional tooth-bleaching treatment that is administered by your dentist, Dr. Razan, will only whiten your teeth for a limited amount of time. If you enjoy dark foods and beverages on a regular basis, you will need to find a way to remove mild surface stains from your teeth before they have a chance to set in.

Many active people wear whitening strips to remove minor surface stains from their teeth as they go about their day.

You should always look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance before purchasing a particular brand of whitening strips. The seal proves that a product has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

It’s important to remember that the hydrogen peroxide concentration that is used in whitening strips can only brighten minor stains. If your teeth are moderately or deeply stained, they will require stronger bleaching treatments to effectively whiten them.

Fortunately, Dr. Razan can administer a professional tooth-bleaching treatment to safely and effectively whiten moderate to deeply stained teeth. Once your teeth have been professionally whitened, you can maintain their brightness by wearing whitening strips each day.
