Your tooth enamel has microscopic pores that are receptive to long-term staining. Many people interested in brightening their smile will turn to Dr. Albert Mendez to understand their whitening options.

Your dentist has the training and experience needed to help you find the safest, most effective way to brighten your smile. Often, they’ll recommend using a dental bleaching gel if your tooth stains are severe enough that other whitening methods won’t work.

The dental bleaching gels sold in stores use concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. This makes dental whitening gel more effective at whitening your teeth than whitening toothpaste or strips. However, you need to make sure to follow the directions closely or else you’ll run the risk of causing damage to your gums.

You use bleaching gels by pouring a little bit of the solution into the trays provided and inserting the trays into your mouth. If any of the dental whitening gel gets on your gums, you should clean the gel immediately with a clean cotton swab.

If you have deeply stained teeth, you should ask your dentist about our tooth-bleaching procedure at Mendez Family Dental. It is the safest and most effective way to whiten moderate to deeply stained teeth.
