A smile that has been stained by dark foods and beverages, tobacco or time can make you feel self-conscious. This might drive you to explore your teeth-whitening options in Middletown, Connecticut, for restoring your bright, white smile.

Moderately stained teeth can often be whitened by using an at-home bleaching gel. Most bleaching gels use concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These are held in concentrations that are much stronger than those in retail whitening toothpaste or strips.

To use the whitening gel, you will pour a little solution into the trays provided and will insert the trays into your mouth for a specific amount of time. If any of the bleaching gel seeps onto your gums, you should remove it immediately with a clean cotton swab. Prolonged access to the potent bleaching gel can actually irritate gum tissues.

If your teeth are deeply stained, or if you haven’t been satisfied with your results from the whitening products offered in stores, you should ask your Laura Miller DDS dentist, Dr. Laura Miller, about a dental bleaching treatment. This is the safest and most effective way to restore your smile’s whiteness and luster.

If you have moderate to deeply stained teeth, you should call Laura Miller DDS at 860-346-6872 to find the best method for restoring your bright, white smile.
