If you were to look at your tooth enamel under a powerful microscope, you would see a porous structure made from tiny mineral crystals. When you consume dark foods and beverages, or occasionally use tobacco products, microscopic dark particles can adhere to the faces of your teeth.
As time goes on they can start to penetrate into your tooth enamel. As this continues to happen it can leave you with an increasingly yellow, gray, or otherwise stained smile.
To effectively remove these dental stains and safely whiten your teeth, you will need the dentists at KC Smile Doc to administer a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents and professional techniques used by Dr. J. Richard Burch and his associates can safely remove dental stains without risking harm to your teeth or gums.
Dr. J. Richard Burch will start by carefully protecting your gums from direct exposure to the powerful whitening agents. This usually involves applying special gel or installing a special rubber membrane over your gums.
Dr. J. Richard Burch will then pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into special trays that will be inserted in your mouth. This will gradually remove stains from the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel.
As the bleaching treatment concludes Dr. J. Richard Burch might also use a special ultraviolet light to address any minor trouble spots.
In the future, it would be wise to limit the number of dark foods and dark beverages you consume. This can help to prevent new dental stains from developing. You might also want to try brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste to help remove minor dental stains between dental cleanings.
