Stains that have been allowed to set into tooth enamel can be very stubborn and hard to remove. This is largely because the whitening products sold in stores are not potent enough to safely penetrate tooth enamel. Even retail-grade bleaching gels pose a threat as their potent whitening agents could potentially harm teeth and gums.

A dental bleaching treatment administered at Dr. Brian Scaff is the only truly effective method for removing set-in stains from deep within tooth enamel.

Before administering the bleaching treatment, Dr. Brian Scaff will protect your gums by applying a special gel or a rubber dental dam over them. Then, he will pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into a tray that is held in your mouth. Once the bleaching is completed, he might use a special ultraviolet light to address any minor problem areas.

With your white smile fully restored, you might want to consider limiting your consumption of dark foods and beverages. You could also brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste. This will help maintain your white smile between dental cleanings and spare you the expense of needing to have future dental bleaching treatments administered.

If you are struggling with a deeply stained smile in Austin, Texas, you should call 512-792-2688 to set up a whitening consultation with the specialists at our clinic.
