Once minor surface stains saturate your tooth enamel it can be hard for the whitening products sold in stores to fully whiten your smile. In a situation like this, you will need to have Dr. Casey Witty perform a dental bleaching treatment at his Nicholasville, Kentucky dental office.

The professional techniques and potent whitening agents that Dr. Casey Witty uses can remove deeply set in stains from your tooth enamel. Then he can help you understand certain lifestyle choices to alter and other means necessary to maintain your white smile.

Simple things like cutting back on dark foods and drinks and avoiding tobacco use will be especially helpful. If minor stains redevelop in your smile, you can clear them away by brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste

This can help maintain your smile between the dental cleaning and polishing of your regular dental exam with Dr. Casey Witty. Just keep in mind that the concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste simply aren’t potent enough to brighten moderate to deeply stained teeth.

Before using a particular brand of whitening toothpaste, you should look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This small logo on the packaging affirms that the toothpaste’s active ingredients have been researched and tested for safe use.

If you live in the Nicholasville, Kentucky area and you need help improving the appearance of your smile, please call our Witty Family and Cosmetic Dentistry team at 859-881-4633 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment. We look forward to helping you maintain your confident smile!
