Your tooth enamel is actually microscopically porous. When you drink dark beverages, consume dark foods or use tobacco products, it can release tiny dark particles into your mouth. These can adhere to the tooth enamel, causing minor surface stains. If they’re not removed in a timely manner, the dark particles can gradually start to sink into the enamel pores, causing deeper and deeper stains in your smile.
This drives many people to experiment with their whitening options. However, before you start any new whitening program, you should consult with your dentists, Drs. Sani, Mangan, and Barredo. The training and experience they have can help you find the safest way to effectively whiten your smile.
Sometimes a dental bleaching gel available in stores can remove moderate stains from the tooth enamel. Most brands use concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to remove stains from your teeth.
This involves pouring a small amount of the bleaching gel into the tray that is provided. You then hold it in your mouth for up to a half an hour. If any of the whitening gel gets on your gums, you should remove it immediately with a clean cotton swab. The gel could potentially cause severe irritation of sensitive gum tissues.
If your teeth are deeply stained, or if you just haven’t been satisfied by your results from whitening products sold in stores, you will need to have Drs. Sani, Mangan, and Barredo administer a dental bleaching treatment. The professional techniques and whitening agents they use have the ability to eradicate stains from deep within teeth.
