Dental stains that saturate the teeth in your smile can be very embarrassing. Unfortunately, they can also be very hard to remove with just the consumer grade whitening products sold on store shelves. Many of these products prove ineffective, frustrating, or pose a potential risk to your teeth and periodontal tissues.
When faced with dental staining problems of this magnitude, you should consult Dr. Meredith McClay to see if you are a good candidate for a dental bleaching treatment.
This professional whitening method uses potent whitening agents that are far more effective than the consumer grade whitening toothpaste and whitening strips. Our team also has the professional tools and training to ensure your teeth and gums remain safe while eradicating the dental stains from your tooth enamel.
Dr. Meredith McClay will start the dental bleaching treatment by applying a special protective gel to your gums or by installing a special rubber dam. Then she will pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into special trays that match the general shape of your teeth.
You will need to lightly bite down on the trays and a gentle suction wand for a few minutes. The exact 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 the luster of your teeth.
