As time passes it’s not uncommon for stains to darken your teeth. This could be compounded by other imperfections, like past dental work that no longer matches the current shade of your tooth enamel. In a situation like this, many people will consult with our dentists to help them select the best whitening method to brighten their smile. They have the training and experience needed to help you find the safest and most effective way to meet your whitening goals.
Deeply stained teeth usually cannot be brightened by retail level whitening products. Fortunately, our dentists can administer a professional teeth whitening procedure. This is the safest and most effective way to have the bright, white smile you’ve always wanted.
At the start of the dental bleaching procedure, your gums will be protected by a special gel or a rubber dam. Then a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel is poured into trays that are inserted into your mouth. How long you need to hold the tray in place will vary depending on how deeply stained your teeth are. A special ultraviolet light might also be used to brighten your teeth further.
