While it might not seem like it at first, simple things, like a morning cup of coffee, a glass of red wine at dinner or the occasional cigar at sundown, can actually leave trace amounts of dark particles in your mouth. These can easily adhere to the surfaces of your teeth, causing dental stains and dulling and darkening your smile. If these dental stains are not removed in a timely manner, they can saturate your tooth enamel so severely that they cannot effectively be resolved with retail-grade whitening products.
To remedy a chronic staining problem of this magnitude, you will need Dr. Kimberly Fee to administer a dental bleaching treatment.
The first step in the process calls for Dr. Kimberly Fee protecting your gums from the potent dental bleach with a special gel or a rubber dam. Once this is done, she will pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into a tray that is inserted into your mouth. This will penetrate the pores on your tooth enamel and dissipate the set-in stain particles.
The total length of the bleaching treatment will vary depending on the severity of your dental staining problem. A special ultraviolet light might also be used to eradicate deep stains in textured areas. This can also help restore the luster of your teeth.
With your white smile fully restored, Dr. Kimberly Fee can help you understand measures to maintain your smile’s appearance. This might include cutting back on certain foods, drinking dark beverages through a straw or brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste.
