When deep stains set into tooth enamel, your teeth can rarely be fully whitened by consumer-grade whitening products. To effectively eradicate stains and whiten your smile, you will likely need to have your dentist, Dr. Edford Clark, perform a dental bleaching treatment in Prestonburg, Kentucky. This is the safest and most effective way to remove deep stains from your tooth enamel.
At the start of the bleaching treatment, Dr. Edford Clark will apply a special gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them. Once this is done, he will then pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into a tray that is held in your mouth. Once the bleach has whitened your teeth, a special ultraviolet light might be used to eradicate stains in minute textures of the tooth enamel.
In the future, you might want to limit your consumption of dark foods and beverages. At the same time, brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association can also be beneficial. This will help remove minor surface stains before they set in, maintaining your white smile between dental cleanings.
