Dr. Adam Hodges’s dental bleaching treatment will safely and effectively whiten your smile. However, these results will only be temporary, if you continue to consume dark foods and beverages without some means of countering their inherent staining effects.

Whitening strips are popular and convenient way to maintain your white smile. You can wear them while you go about your day, and the clear plastic makes it hard for the casual observer to even notice they are in your mouth Unfortunately, like whitening toothpaste the topical hydrogen peroxide is only strong enough to whiten minor surface stains.

When you are shopping for whitening strips you should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. The seal represents that the product has been researched and tested for safety and effectiveness.

Keep in mind that if the stains on your teeth are related to tobacco use, you may need to cease, or the stains will merely return in short order. Tobaccos simply stains tooth enamel so easily and deeply that only professional measures like Dr. Adam Hodges’s bleaching treatment can remedy them.
