Many people feel that a bright white smile can help boost self-confidence. When dental stains start to develop on the teeth in your smile it can leave you looking for answers. Many of the dental whitening products sold in stores offer great promises for safety and effectiveness at removing stains from tooth enamel.

However, not all of them are as potent or as safe as they may claim. The wisest course of action is to schedule a whitening consultation with Dr. David J. Harsant. The years of training and experience he has received can help you find the best method for restoring your white smile.

Whitening toothpaste and whitening strips can be a convenient way to remove minor dental stains from the surfaces of your teeth. It’s worth noting that these products are more of a maintenance step and can often prove ineffective for improving more significant dental stains.

The dental bleaching gels sold in stores use stronger concentrations of whitening agents than whitening toothpaste or whitening strips. Unfortunately, if some of the gel gets on your gums it can cause severe irritation. Excessive use of these gels without a dentist’s supervision could also harm your teeth.

If you’ve been dealing with significant dental stains, the safest and most effective option for whitening your smile is to have Dr. David J. Harsant administer a dental bleaching treatment. The professional techniques and training he uses can safely remove dental stains that have set deep into tooth enamel without risking harm to your teeth or gums.
