A smile that has been dulled by mild to moderate staining issues can leave you feeling awkward as you go about your daily social life. Most whitening toothpastes and whitening strips use a mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide to help brighten minor surface stains on teeth. These products are often meant to maintain your smile between dental cleanings or after a professional bleaching treatment.

Moderately stained teeth often require stronger measures to effectively whiten your smile. One method you can try at home is to whiten your teeth with a dental bleaching gel. Before doing this you should consult with our dentist to make sure this is the safest and most effective means to address your specific staining problem. 

Most dental whitening gels use either concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. While these are more potent than whitening toothpaste and strips, they are still not strong enough to completely whiten deeply stained teeth. To do this you will need Dr. James Johnson to administer an in-office power bleaching to lighten your teeth. Our professional strength dental bleaching treatment uses a powerful yet safe whitening gel applied to the surface of your teeth to lighten stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel.
