Deep stains on your smile can leave you feeling self-conscious. The depth and degree of the stains will influence the whitening method Dr. Feldman recommends. If you’ve been unimpressed with the whitening products sold in stores, or if your teeth are deeply stained, he will likely recommend a dental bleaching treatment.
The potent whitening agents your dentist uses represent the safest and most effective way to whiten the teeth in your smile.
At the start of the dental bleaching treatment, Dr. Feldman will protect your gums with a special gel or a rubber dam. A small amount of concentrated bleaching gel will then be poured into trays that are then inserted into your mouth. This gel will penetrate into the pores on your tooth enamel and dissipate the stain particles.
The trays will need to be held in place on your teeth for a few minutes. The total duration of the treatment will vary depending on the severity of your tooth stains. A special ultraviolet light might also be used to brighten your teeth even further, and sometimes another treatment may be needed.
If you have a darkly stained smile that needs whitening, you should call James K Feldman DDS at 202-362-8412 to have your teeth professionally bleached in Washington, District Of Columbia.
