There are several dark foods and beverages that can slowly penetrate the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel, causing your teeth to become deeply stained. Stained teeth can leave you self-conscious about your smile and wanting to explore your whitening options.
You should always consult with Dido Kim before starting any new whitening program. Our highly trained dental professionals have the knowledge and experience to you find the right whitening products or procedures to meet your whitening goals.
If the teeth in your smile are deeply stained or you have been dissatisfied with the results you’ve seen with consumer grade products, you can talk to Dido Kim about a dental tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of whitening agents in a tooth bleaching procedure is the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile.
At the start of the tooth bleaching procedure, a special gel or a rubber dam will be applied to your gums to thoroughly protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Your dentist will then pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into trays that are inserted and held in your mouth.
The duration of the dental tooth bleaching procedure will vary depending on how deeply stained your teeth are, and your personal whitening goals. A special ultraviolet light might also be used to brighten your teeth further.
Once your teeth are thoroughly whitened, you should spend some time identifying the cause of the stains, so you can alter the behavior and maintain your new, bright, white smile.
If you have questions or would like to explore your whitening options, please call Dido Kim at 201-854-5500 to schedule an appointment.
