You already know that if you’re looking for a whiter smile, the best place to achieve this is at our practice! We offer teeth whitening, veneers, and more. However, your Moreno Valley dentist knows you might have other ideas regarding ways to whiten up your grin. While we appreciate your interest in presenting your best smile, we would also like to offer a word of caution: If it’s not a professional treatment, you’re not going to be happy with the outcome (it might even include damage). So, without further ado, consider a few things that just won’t work!

#1: Brushing Harder

We know! The temptation to brush longer, harder, and with more attention to detail seems like it should work. However, it’s not going to help you erase stains, explains your Moreno Valley dentist. Discoloration (for the most part) is not on the surface, so it’s not accessible by brush bristles. What you will accomplish is irritated gums and damaged teeth if you try this for too long.

#2: Whitening Toothpaste

Your Moreno Valley dentist explains that whitening toothpaste is not without its benefits. It can certainly give your smile a bit of a glow because it can take away some extremely minor stains. However, when you want a smile that is much whiter, you’re going to require cosmetic care from us, the professionals.

#3: Pinterest Suggestions

You might see tons and tons of remedies on Pinterest or throughout the internet that seem similar. They must work then, right, if you keep seeing them along with testimonials that they’re effective? Not quite! In most instances, the results will fall flat. In others, you’ll end up facing damage to your smile.
