When minor surface stains are allowed to penetrate into your tooth enamel, they can leave you with a dull, yellow, and unappealing smile. For a smile this seriously afflicted with stains, Dr. Dido Kim will often advise having a dental bleaching treatment administered.

The potent whitening agents and professional techniques he uses can safely eradicate even the deepest of stains from the tooth enamel.

At the start of the treatment, your dentist will take measures to protect your gums from having direct exposure to the powerful dental bleaching agents. This usually comes in the form of a special gel or a rubber dam.

This will protect them from irritation and help maintain your comfort throughout the treatment. Your dentist will then pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into a tray that is held in your mouth. A special ultraviolet light might be used to eradicate stains in minute textures of the tooth enamel.

Going forward, you might want to limit your consumption of dark foods and beverages to prevent new stains from setting in. You might also want to try brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste to help maintain your white smile between dental cleanings.

If you live in the North Bergen, New Jersey, area and you want a bright, white smile, you should call 201-854-5500 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at Dido Kim.
