Stains on the teeth in your smile can often leave you feeling self-conscious. Tooth enamel can be stained from several different sources like dark food and drinks, tobacco use or simply the natural processes of aging. The depth of staining in the enamel of your teeth will greatly determine which whitening products and procedures are called for to meet your whitening goals.

Be sure to talk to your dentist before starting a new whitening regimen. At Double Take Dental we are trained to help you find the most effective whitening products and procedures to meet your needs.

Whitening strips are a popular and convenient way to whiten your smile while you are out and about. Whitening strips are made from a clear plastic material that has been treated with a topical form of hydrogen peroxide.

You simply apply them to the teeth in your smile for a half hour and the casual observer won’t even notice you’re wearing them. While the whitening strips are in your mouth you should abstain from drinking, eating and using tobacco.

The topical hydrogen peroxide in whitening strips is only strong enough to brighten minor surface stains on teeth. Deep stains on tooth enamel can rarely be whitened by retail level products. At Double Take Dental we offer a dental bleaching procedure that can whiten deep stains safely and effectively.
