If you were to look at the surface of your tooth enamel through a powerful microscope, you would see microscopic mineral crystals with pores and textures. These areas can sometimes trap microscopic staining particles from dark foods and beverages. If they’re not regularly removed, these stains can set deeper and deeper into your teeth.
Unfortunately, the vast of the whitening products sold in stores are only strong enough to whiten minor surface stains. To safely and effectively whiten a deeply stained smile, you should talk to your dentist, Dr. Timothy Dinkelman, about dental bleaching treatment in Lincoln, Nebraska. This can safely whiten your teeth in a single appointment and save you the futility and time of using inferior retail-grade whitening products.
At the start of the treatment, Dr. Timothy Dinkelman will take measures to protect your gums from the potent bleaching agents. This is usually done by applying a special gel or installing a temporary rubber dam over your gums.
Once your gums have been protected, Dr. Timothy Dinkelman will pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into a tray. This is inserted into your mouth and held there. The severity of your tooth stains will influence the duration of the treatment.
At the end of the appointment, Dr. Timothy Dinkelman might use an ultraviolet light to eradicate stains from textured areas in the enamel and improve the overall luster of your smile.
If you are tired of living with a dull and stained smile, you should call 402-477-1177 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at Northridge Dental LLC.
