Many different factors and lifestyle habits can lead to stains developing on the teeth in your smile. Just how deeply the enamel layer of your teeth is stained will influence the kind of whitening product and procedure that will best meet your whitening goals.
You should consult with Bull City Dental before starting any whitening program. Our highly trained dental professionals can help you develop the whitening program to safely and effectively whiten your smile.
If the teeth in your smile are deeply stained or you simply have been dissatisfied with your results from consumer grade whitening products, you should ask Bull City Dental about a dental tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of whitening agents in a tooth bleaching procedure is the safest and most effective way to brighten your smile.
The procedure starts by applying a special gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Then the dentist will pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into trays that are inserted and held in your mouth. An ultraviolet light might also be used to brighten your teeth further.
It’s important to note that even after your teeth have been completely whitened, you will need to curb the activities that caused the original staining, or you will develop stains yet again.
