A smile that has been stained by dark foods and beverages, tobacco use or the general passage of time, can leave you feeling self-conscious. Many people in a situation like this reach out to Dr. Joel Manalese to help understand their options for whitening their smile. One way to brighten minor surface stains is to use whitening strips.

These are basically clear plastic strips that have been treated with a special topical form of hydrogen peroxide. You can conveniently wear them as you go about your day, and the casual observer won’t even notice you have them on your teeth. While the whitening strips are in your mouth you will need to avoid drinking, eating and using tobacco products.

It’s important to keep in mind that the concentration of topical hydrogen peroxide on whitening strips is only strong enough to brighten minor surface stains on tooth enamel. Deep stains from regularly consuming dark foods and drinks and tobacco stained enamel can only be safely and effectively whitened by Dr. Joel Manalese’s dental bleaching treatment.

If you have teeth suffering from staining issues, you should not delay in calling Dr. Joel Manalese’s office in Riverside, California at 951-643-4405 to explore your whitening options.
