Yellow stains on the teeth in your smile can leave you feeling self-conscious and socially awkward. Many people in this position will try to use retail-grade whitening products to remove stains from their teeth. Some people will turn to using dental bleaching gels to attempt to whiten their smile.

Before using any self-administered whitening procedure, you should consult with Dr. Milan Sata. Your dentist has the training and experience needed to help you understand the safest and most effective methods for whitening your smile.

Most dental whitening gels use either concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. While the gel is more potent than whitening toothpaste and strips, it is still is not strong enough to completely whiten deeply stained teeth.

Using the gel is simple. You pour a little bit of the solution into the tray provided and then insert it into your mouth. If any of the dental whitening gel gets on your gums, you should remove it immediately with a clean cotton swab.

Unfortunately, most whitening gel cannot whiten deeply stained teeth. To do this, you will need Dr. Milan Sata to administer a professional-strength dental bleaching treatment.
