Many people feel that a white and even smile says a lot about them. Unfortunately, the natural processes of aging, dark food and drinks or tobacco use can stain the teeth in your smile. This might leave you feeling self-conscious and wanting to explore your whitening options.

It’s a good idea to consult with Dr. David Goldschein before starting a new whitening routine. The training and experience he has can help you find the safest and most effective way to meet your whitening goals.

Moderately stained teeth can often be whitened by using dental whitening gel. Most whitening gels use concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These are much stronger than the whitening agents you find in whitening toothpaste or strips.

To use whitening gel, you simply pour a small amount into the trays provided. The trays are then inserted into your mouth and held there for up to half an hour. If any of the whitening gel gets on your gums, you should remove it as soon as possible with a clean cotton swab.

If your teeth are deeply stained, or you simply haven’t been satisfied with your results from retail level whitening products, you should talk to Dr. David Goldschein about a professional tooth bleaching procedure. This is the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile.

If you would like to explore your whitening options, you should call Dr. David Goldschein at 813-251-5740 to schedule an appointment.
