As you age it’s not uncommon for your teeth to lose their luster, or suffer from significant staining problems. Dr. Mauricio Martinez can help you find the best option for whitening your smile. The depth and degree of staining will go a long way towards influencing the options he recommends.

Brushing your teeth twice a day with a whitening toothpaste is an easy way to maintain your white smile between dental cleaning appointments. The concentration of whitening agents in whitening toothpaste, simply aren’t potent enough to brighten moderate to deeply stained teeth.

Whitening strips are popular and convenient because you can wear them while you go about your day. The clear plastic makes it hard for the casual observer to even notice you’re wearing them. Unfortunately, like whitening toothpaste the topical hydrogen peroxide is only strong enough to whiten minor surface stains.

Tooth bleaching gel uses stronger concentrations of whitening agents than toothpaste or strips. However, they can only be used at home, and you will need to take safety precautions to protect your gums from being irritated by the bleaching agents.

Deeply stained tooth enamel can only be safely and effectively whitened by Dr. Mauricio Martinez’s professional dental bleaching treatment.
