As time goes by, the natural processes of aging and the regular consumption of dark foods and beverages can cause stains on tooth enamel. This is even more likely to occur if you use tobacco products on a regular basis. Unfortunately, the whitening products sold in stores do not use whitening agents that are potent enough to remove deep stains from teeth. In a case like this, your dentist, Dr. Susanne Baaqee, will likely recommend a dental bleaching treatment in Ocoee, Florida.
Before administering the bleaching treatment, Dr. Susanne Baaqee will protect your gums by applying a special gel or a rubber dental dam on them. Then, she will pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into a tray that is held in your mouth. After the bleach has whitened your teeth, a special ultraviolet light might be used to eradicate the stains in the small textures of the tooth enamel.
Afterward, it might be advisable to limit your consumption of dark foods and beverages or to brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste. This will help you maintain your white smile between dental cleanings and spare you the expense of future dental bleaching treatments.
If you have been struggling with significant staining issues on the teeth in your smile, you should call Classic Smiles at 407-293-3002 to ask about a dental bleaching treatment.
