If the teeth in your smile have been yellowed by the passage of time or your enjoyment of dark foods and beverages, it can leave you feeling socially awkward. In a situation like this, there are several different options that Dr. Layal Assi might suggest.

Brushing your teeth whitening toothpaste can help brighten minor surface stains. This can be a convenient way to maintain your white smile between dental cleanings. Just keep in mind that the hydrogen peroxide concentration in whitening toothpaste cannot address deeper stains.

Wearing whitening strips is also a convenient way to whiten your teeth as you go about your day. You simply apply them to your teeth and just like whitening toothpaste, they can help you maintain your white smile.

Whitening gels employ stronger concentrations of whitening agents than whitening toothpaste or strips. However, they can still only effectively whiten moderately stained teeth.

Deeply stained teeth will require Dr. Layal Assi’s professional bleaching treatment, for full effective whitening.

If you would like to explore your whitening product and treatment options, you should call Dr. Layal Assi’s office in Houston, Texas at 713-909-0675 for a consultation.
