Whitening Strips and Whitening Toothpaste Can Help Maintain Your Smile After Dental Bleaching

Posted .

Many people in the Toluca Lake, California area who are struggling with a dull, stained or yellow-looking smile, will turn to the dental specialists at Lawrence Zabner, DMD’s clinic to have their teeth professionally bleached. The potent whitening agents we use and the professional techniques we’ve developed represent the safest way to restore your gleaming, white smile.

Once your smile has been treated and successfully whitened, you will need to take measures to prevent future stains from saturating your teeth. This typically calls for limiting certain foods, like chocolate, dark berries, and tomato sauces. It will also help to drink dark beverages through a straw.

To prevent surface stains from developing and potentially saturating your tooth enamel, you might want to consider using whitening toothpaste or whitening strips. 

–Whitening toothpaste uses dental-grade hydrogen peroxide to remove minor surface stains. You can brush with it each every evening to prevent any stains accumulated during the day from penetrating the microscopic textures of your tooth enamel

–Whitening strips are basically clear plastic strips that have been treated with a special topical form of hydrogen peroxide. You can conveniently wear them as you go about your day and the casual observer won’t even notice you have them on your teeth.

–Before using any of these products, be sure to look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance on your product of choice. This ensures that the whitening toothpaste or whitening strips have been professionally researched and tested for both safety and effectiveness.
