If you yearn to have a bright, white, shining smile that fills the room with light. Dr. Todd Johnson, a dentist serving in Onalaska, WI, can help you get the smile of your dreams. Whether your teeth become discolored due to medication, fluorosis, coffee or tea drinking, or tobacco use, Dr. Johnson can help.

Dentist Office Teeth Whitening

Dr. Johnson loves to educate people about in-office teeth whitening options.

While there are many ways to make your smile shine, some whitening agents are not ideal for certain stains, like brownish or grey stains or on crowns, porcelain veneers, or tooth-colored fillings. Most dentists offer multiple teeth-whitening remedies ranging from in-office tooth bleaching to the use of ultraviolet light to fixing stained teeth with veneers.

At-Home Remedies

There are some proactive things you can do at home to prevent teeth staining. These include:

  • Regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing: If you brush and floss regularly, then there is less likelihood that foods and drinks will stain your teeth. This also keeps bacteria and plaque from building upon them, causing discoloration.
  • Coconut oil pulling: Coconut oil pulling has been practiced for centuries as a way to naturally brighten teeth and reduce bacterial build-up. It’s also a great way to increase oral hygiene. 
  • Eating fruits and vegetables with high water content: The water content in some fruit and vegetables can help to wash away stains. Replacing sugary foods and snacks with fruit and vegetables can also reduce dental cavities. 

Why Not Over-the-Counter Whitening?

Some over-the-counter whitening agents and whitening toothpaste temporarily do a decent job whitening teeth a few shades lighter, but many of them contain abrasive agents that irritate the gums and also harm the delicate enamel of your teeth.

Will Teeth Whitening Give Me the Smile I Want?

A great diet and good oral hygiene is the start to a bright smile, but there are dental remedies for brighter, whiter teeth.
