If you’ve been struggling to find an effective way to whiten your smile, then we recommend you consider whitening strips. They can do quite a lot to help improve the appearance of your smile, which will, in turn, increase your self-confidence.

So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at the whitening strips Dr. Param Gill suggests you use, and other steps you can take to whiten your smile.

Whitening strips are essentially a clear sheet of plastic that has been treated with a topical form of hydrogen peroxide. You will need to avoid drinking, eating and using tobacco while the strips are in your mouth.

The concentration of topical hydrogen peroxide used in whitening strips is only strong enough to brighten minor stains on your teeth. To whiten deeply stained teeth, you will need to have your dentist, Dr. Param Gill, perform a professional teeth bleaching treatment. This will safely and effectively whiten even the darkest stained teeth. You can then maintain your smile’s whiteness and luster with whitening strips.

Whitening strips are certainly convenient when you don’t have the time to come into our Monte Vista Dental office in Turlock, California, but if you have deep enamel stains they just won’t do the trick.
