Whether you’re a student who wishes to make a stunning impression on the first day of school, or a teacher who aims to appear flawless before your new students, your smile will help determine the outcome of either situation. A bright, strong, confident smile will infect others around you with the same smiling exuberance. A weak, insincere smile, however, can have the exact opposite effect, and cause some people to feel uneasy in your presence. When your teeth are not as white you wish them to be, your confidence can diminish slightly. The change can be seen as you attempt to hide your teeth instead of proudly showing them. Dallas dentist Dr. Truong offers a variety of options to whiten your teeth and bring the joy back to your smile.

Removing the Stains

Most toothpastes on the market today consist of mild abrasives that lift some stains from your tooth’s surface. Some toothpastes are specifically marketed as tooth-whitening products, and contain chemical agents that provide additional stain-removal power. Other abrasive products, such as baking soda, are also popular home-remedy choices for whitening your teeth, and operate on the same basis of stain-removal as whitening toothpastes. Stain removal may whiten your smile up to a whole shade. If you require more whitening power, consult with Dr. Truong to determine the best treatment to suit your needs.
