Why Tooth Whitening Is Not Equal to Tooth Brushing

Last updated 6 years ago

A white smile isn’t always a healthy smile. It’s important to know that at-home whitening treatments that contain powerful stain-removing chemicals can’t effectively remove plaque and tartar buildup.

For more information on why it is important to brush and floss your teeth every day, take a look at this video. You’ll hear from an American Dental Association representative about why whitening treatments can’t measure up to thorough tooth brushing. Remember to visit your dentist regularly in order to maintain a good oral hygiene routine and clean, healthy teeth.

Undergoing professional dental screenings and cleanings can help prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health complications. Visit the office of Dr. Kenn Kakosian, DDS if you need any general or cosmetic dental treatment. To learn more about our dental practice, visit our website or call (888) 775-8116 today.
