Stains that develop on the surfaces of the teeth in your smile will inevitably start to penetrate deeper and deeper into the tooth enamel. In time, this can leave you with a yellow, unattractive smile that significantly hinders your overall appearance.
To effectively whiten a smile that suffers from significant staining problems, Drs. Klassen and Quiroz will often recommend a dental bleaching treatment. When you combine their professional tools and techniques with potent dental bleaching agents, you will have the safest method of fully removing stains from deep within the tooth enamel.
The potent whitening agents can potentially harm sensitive gum tissues. To prevent this from happening, Dr. Klassen and Dr. Quiroz will apply a special gel or a temporary rubber dam over your gums.
Then, they will pour a small amount of concentrated dental-grade bleach into a mouth-shaped tray. It is inserted into your mouth and held there for a specific amount of time. The total duration of the dental bleaching treatment will vary depending on the depth and severity of the stains.
With the bleaching completed, our dentists might use a special ultraviolet light to brighten your teeth and whiten any lingering staining particles that are deep within the tooth enamel. This can also help improve the luster of your teeth and eradicate deep stains from any trouble spots.
