Many people struggle with stains on the teeth in their smile. Fortunately, Durango Dentistry’s staff of dental professionals are well-versed in a wide variety of whitening products and treatments. It’s a good idea to consult with us before trying a new whitening program. We can help you make sure it is safe and potent enough to address your particular staining issue.

Applying whitening strips to the teeth in your smile can help brighten minor surface stains. This can be a convenient way to maintain your white smile between dental cleanings or after a bleaching treatment. Just keep in mind that the concentration of topical hydrogen peroxide on whitening strips cannot address deeper stains.

You should only use whitening strips that have earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents that a product has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

It’s important to remember, that the hydrogen peroxide concentration used in whitening strips can only brighten minor stains. If your teeth are already moderately to deeply stained, they will require stronger measures to correct the issue.

Here at Durango Dentistry our dentists can administer a professional dental 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.

If you are struggling to find the best method for maintaining your smile’s luster, you should call Durango Dentistry’s Durango, Colorado clinic at 970.259.1646 to explore your whitening options.
