When minor surface stains are not removed from the surfaces of your teeth during your daily oral hygiene routine, they will gradually start to settle deeper into the tooth enamel. As time goes on, this can leave you with unappealing stains on the surfaces of your teeth. Many people in a situation like this will turn to Dr. James Gunelson to have a dental bleaching treatment administered at his Stanley, Wisconsin, clinic.

With your smile professionally whitened, Dr. James Gunelson will likely suggest cutting back on certain dark foods and beverages. At the same time, he might also recommend drinking dark beverages through a straw. Brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste can also be helpful for removing surface stains between dental cleanings at Stanley Hometown Dentistry LLC.

Most brands of whitening toothpaste use a special hydrogen peroxide whitening agent. Brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste each day can remove minor surface stains before they have a chance to penetrate deeper into the tooth enamel.

While shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should only consider a brand that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This seal signifies that the toothpaste has been subjected to rigorous research and testing for use in a daily oral hygiene routine.

If you live in the Stanley, Wisconsin, area and you need help whitening your smile, you should call 715-644-3601 to set up a whitening consultation with Dr. James Gunelson.
