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. Razan, can administer a professional dental bleaching treatment that uses whitening agents that are far more potent than any you can find on store shelves.
At the start of the dental bleaching treatment, Dr. Razan will take measures to protect your gums by installing a soft rubber dam or applying a protective gel.
Dr. Razan will then pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into trays that are inserted into your mouth. They will need to be held in place for a few minutes. The total duration of the treatment will vary depending on how deeply stained your teeth are. A special ultraviolet light might also be used to brighten your teeth further.
If the teeth in your smile have been dulled and darkened by stained tooth enamel, you should call Time Square Dental Group at (832) 426.4433 to explore your options for a whiter smile in Pasadena, Texas.
