Stains that develop on the surfaces of your teeth or that have been allowed to penetrate your tooth enamel can leave you with a stained, yellow, or otherwise discolored smile. Rather than living with an unappealing smile, you should consider calling 512-930-7645 to schedule a whitening consultation .

Dr. Mark Kupec has the extensive training and experience needed to help you find the safest way to restore the white gleam of your smile.

Brushing with a whitening toothpaste can be a very convenient way of removing surface stains before they can penetrate your tooth enamel. Unfortunately, the hydrogen peroxide concentration in whitening toothpaste can only brighten minor stains.

Whitening strips can be applied to the teeth in your smile as a convenient way of improving minor surface stains. You simply apply them to your teeth as you go about your day. Since they are made of a clear plastic material, the casual observer won’t be able to notice them in your mouth.

When shopping for whitening toothpaste or whitening strips, you should look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This small logo represents that the ADA has tested and researched the product for safe oral use.

An at-home whitening gel can be used at home to whiten moderately stained teeth. It’s also important to note that the whitening agents in these products can cause harm when exposed to gum tissues.

The most effective method for safely removing stains from your teeth is to have Dr. Mark Kupec perform a dental bleaching treatment. This can effectively remove stains from deep within your tooth enamel without causing undue harm to your teeth or gums.
