Want whiter teeth?
You’re not alone! Americans spend nearly $2 billion dollars every year trying to make their teeth whiter and brighter.
Many people spend too much time and money on over-the-counter whitening strips, charcoal toothpaste, and other home remedies only to get lackluster results. Worse, without dentist supervision, these methods can cause severe tooth sensitivity.
The best way to whiten your teeth, protect your health, and feel confident about your smile is to:
- Change your lifestyle, diet, and brushing habits
- Visit your dentist for a professional teeth whitening treatment

Are stained teeth bad?
Extrinsic stains are strictly a cosmetic/aesthetic issue. However, intrinsic stains can be a dental health concern.
It’s important to monitor the health of your smile and make sure your discolored teeth aren’t at risk of cavities, cracks, and other issues.
If you have stained teeth, ask Dr. Waring about what might be the cause at your next dental exam.
