The tooth polishing in your regular dental checkup or the dental tooth bleaching treatment administered by Dr. Truong Nguyen will whiten your teeth for a time. If you enjoy dark foods such as berries, and beverages such as coffee or wine on a regular basis, or if you use tobacco, you will need to find a way to mitigate stains on a daily basis.

Brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste can help brighten minor surface stains. This can be a convenient way to maintain your brighter smile between dental cleanings. At the same time, you should also note that the hydrogen peroxide concentration in whitening toothpaste cannot address deeper stains.

When shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should always check to make sure it has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This seal signifies that the ADA has researched and tested the product for safety and effectiveness as part of an oral hygiene routine.

Keep in mind that whitening toothpastes can only brighten minor surface stains. The professional tooth bleaching procedure we offer is the safest, most effective way to brighten moderate to deeply stained teeth. Our teeth whitening treatment is available in both in-office and take-home systems.

If you are unhappy with the shade of your tooth enamel, we invite you to call Dr. Truong Nguyen’s office in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania at 484.392.7687 to explore your whitening options.
