Your tooth enamel has microscopic pores that small, dark particles can sometimes adhere to. As time passes, these stains can penetrate deeper and deeper into the tooth enamel. You should always consult with your dentist, Dr. Kristen Langworthy, before embracing a new whitening product or treatment. Our team has the training and experience needed to help you determine the most effective teeth-whitening method available in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.
If you haven’t been satisfied with your results from consumer-grade whitening products, our dentist can administer a professional bleaching treatment. This is the safest and most effective way to whiten the teeth in your smile.
At the start of the bleaching treatment, your dentist will apply a special gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them. Once this is done, she will then pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into trays that are held in your mouth. After the bleach has whitened your teeth, a special ultraviolet light might be used to eradicate stains in the tooth enamel.
Afterward, it might be best to limit your consumption of dark foods and beverages or to brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste. This will help you maintain your white smile between dental cleanings.
If you want a bright, white and winning smile, you should call Langworthy Family Dentistry at 919-762-3239 to ask about our professional bleaching treatment.
