Many people feel that a white and winning smile plays into their favor in many of life’s social settings. However, if you enjoy dark foods and beverages on a regular basis, it can darken and dull the luster of your tooth enamel. If minor surface stains aren’t removed on a timely basis, they can set deeply into the microscopic pores of your tooth enamel.

If you have moderate to deeply stained teeth, your dentist, Dr. Scharla Collins, can administer a dental bleaching treatment. This employs whitening agents that are far more potent than any you can find on store shelves.

The potent whitening agents and professional techniques that we use represent the safest and most effective way to whiten the teeth in your smile. If you use tobacco products, this might be the only measure strong enough to effectively whiten your teeth.

Before administering the dental bleach, your dentist will apply a special protective gel or install a rubber dam over your gums to protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Then, she will pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into a tray that is held in your mouth.

The length of the treatment might vary depending on the severity of the tooth stains as well as your personal whitening goals. Once the bleaching procedure is complete, a special ultraviolet light can be used for additional whitening and to improve your smile’s luster.
