A winning smile is a huge advantage in many business and social situations. Unfortunately, the passage of time and the stains brought on by dark beverages and foods can stain your teeth and dim their once youthful luster.

Many people reach out to Dr. Richard Timm to have their teeth in their smile professionally bleached.

Once your teeth have been safely and effectively whitened, you can then maintain your bright smile between dental cleanings with whitening toothpaste.

These toothpastes have a special hydrogen peroxide whitening agent incorporated into them. By brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste each day will remove minor surface stains before they have a chance penetrate deeper into the tooth enamel.

When shopping for whitening toothpaste, you should only consider a brand that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This seal signifies that the toothpaste has been subjected to rigorous research and testing for use in a daily oral hygiene routine.

If you have questions about the best way to maintain your smile after a dental bleaching treatment, you should call All Family Dental’s clinic in Oakdale, Minnesota to consult with one of our dentists.
