If you regularly enjoy dark foods and beverages or use tobacco products, it can leave you with dull or yellow teeth. The severity and depth of the stains in your tooth enamel will largely determine the whitening method needed to fully brighten your smile.

To that end, it’s always a good idea to consult with your dentist, Dr. Wallace Lunden, before starting any new whitening treatment. The training and experience he has received can help you safely and effectively whiten your smile.

Many people brush their teeth with a brand of whitening toothpaste. At the same time, whitening strips are also popular and convenient because you can apply them while you’re on the go. The clear plastic makes it hard for the casual observer to even notice you’re wearing them. Each of these strips use a form of hydrogen peroxide that is only strong enough to whiten minor surface stains.

Whitening gels use stronger concentrations of whitening agents than whitening toothpaste or strips. To use them, you will pour a small amount of the whitening gel into the provided tray and will hold it in your mouth for a set amount of time.

If your teeth are deeply stained, you will need Dr. Wallace Lunden’s dental bleaching treatment to effectively whiten your teeth.
