Consuming dark beverages, eating certain foods and even occasionally using tobacco can cause dark stains on your smile. As time goes by, these stains can penetrate deeper and deeper into your teeth. Staining problems this severe can rarely be improved by the whitening products sold in stores.

Before using any whitening product, it’s always a good idea to consult with Dr. Brian Scaff. Your dentist has the extensive training and experience needed to help you find the most effective method to safely whiten your smile.

In most cases like this, the only way to fully whiten your smile is to have him administer a professional dental whitening treatment. The potent whitening agents he employs with his professional techniques and tools can remove stains from deep within tooth enamel.

Your dentist will start by applying a special gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Then, he will pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into a tray that is held in your mouth for a few minutes.

The length of the treatment will vary depending on the severity of your tooth stains and your personal whitening goals. Once the bleaching is done, a special ultraviolet light might also be used to whiten deep pores in the tooth enamel.

If your smile is suffering from significant stains and you’re interested in a professional teeth-whitening treatment in Austin, Texas, you should call 512-792-2688 to schedule a whitening consultation at Dr. Brian Scaff.
