Let's talk about how to whiten a dog's teeth. Now staining comes from tartar and basically what happens is bacteria likes to set up on top of teeth and create plaque which is kind of a film. When that happens, tartar which is almost like a concrete type of hard substance starts to form and embed on that plaque. Once that occurs everything gets kind of nice and hard and stained. Plaque can now stain the teeth as well and so prevention is going to be the key. There are several ways to help prevent tartar and staining of the teeth but how to whiten dog's teeth is more difficult when they have it. A dentistry procedure through your veterinary clinic can remove tartar and polish those teeth up and get them white again but again prevention is the key. There are a lot of products out there especially toothpaste and toothbrush kits which is always a good idea because that overall health of the dental and in the mouth actually is going to improve your pet's livelihood and survival time and so if you have a lot of tartar toothpaste is not going to whiten the teeth but it will definitely keep those teeth white. Now there are a lot of bones and products out there as well that they can chew on that can help strip tartar and keep teeth white as well. There are no strips or anything like there are in humans to whiten teeth, you have to get rid of that tartar or prevent that tartar from happening to keep those teeth white.
