A smile that has been stained by dark foods and beverages or tobacco use can leave you feeling self-conscious about your physical appearance. Using a whitening toothpaste to brush your teeth is a popular and convenient way to brighten minor surface stains.Before purchasing any brand of whitening toothpaste in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

Unfortunately, moderate to deeply stained tooth enamel can rarely be improved by retail-grade whitening products. In a case like this, your dentist, Dr. Tim J. Brooks, will need to administer a professional dental bleaching treatment. This is the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile.

Once your teeth have been completely whitened, you can then add a brand of whitening toothpaste to your daily oral hygiene routine to help remove surface stains before they set in. This can be an effective way to maintain your white smile and reduce the need for future dental bleaching treatments.

At the same time, it might also help to make some minor changes in your lifestyle choices. Cutting back on dark foods and beverages and avoiding tobacco use will go a long way toward maintaining your smile.

If you have a stained smile, you should contact Dr. Tim J Brooks, DDS at 405-752-0600 to find the best method for maintaining your white smile.
