Dental stains can vary in severity, depending on certain lifestyle choices and activities. If they are not dealt with in a reasonable amount of time minor surface stains can gradually start to saturate deep into the pores of your tooth enamel.

Fortunately, Dr. Christopher Layton can help assess the depth of your dental stains to determine the safest and most effective method for removing them from your teeth.  

Occasionally brushing your teeth with a brand of whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance can help remove minor surface stains from your teeth. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the hydrogen peroxide used as the primary whitening agent in these products cannot affect significant dental stains.  

Whitening strips that have been approved for safe use by the ADA also help to remove minor surface stains from your teeth. You can apply them to your teeth as you go about your day. The clear plastic material makes it hard for the casual observer to even notice you’re wearing them.   

More significant dental stains can rarely be improved by the whitening products sold in stores. In a situation like this, you will need Dr. Christopher Layton to administer a dental bleaching treatment. This is the most effective method for removing significant dental stains.
