The tooth enamel layer on each of your teeth is made from a complex matrix of microscopic mineral crystals. This is what gives your teeth the hardness to bite, chew, and grind the foods you eat. At the same time, the surfaces of your teeth also have microscopic textures that can trap tiny dark particles from certain foods and dark beverages.
If they aren’t cleared away by your daily oral hygiene routine, these minor surface stains can start to saturate your tooth enamel. Over time, this can cause significant dental stains to appear in your smile.
In a situation like this, you will need Dr. Joseph Conard to administer a professional dental bleaching treatment at his dental office in Waynesville, North Carolina. This professional whitening method employs potent whitening agents that are far more effective than the whitening products sold in stores. Dr. Joseph Conard also have the professional tools and training to ensure your teeth and gums remain safe throughout the process.
At the start of the dental bleaching treatment, Dr. Joseph Conard will apply a special protective gel or install a rubber dam to protect your gum. A small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent will then be carefully poured into special trays that match the general shape of your teeth.
The trays will be inserted into your mouth along with a small suction wand. You will then need to bite down lightly to hold everything in place. The amount of time you need to hold the trays in your mouth will vary depending on the depth of your dental stains.
Once the bleaching procedure is complete, special ultraviolet light can be used for additional whitening and to improve your smile’s luster.
If you are struggling with a deeply stained smile, and you live in the Waynesville, North Carolina, area, you should call 828-452-1187 to schedule a dental bleaching at Joseph R. Conard, DDS.
