A smile that has been stained by the passage of time and dark foods and beverages can leave you feeling awkward in social situations. If you’ve been dissatisfied with the consumer grade whitening products sold in stores, or if your teeth are deeply stained, your dentist, Dr. Christine Lee, might recommend having a dental bleaching treatment administered.

The potent whitening agents and professional techniques that we use represent the safest and most effective way to whiten the teeth in your smile. If you use tobacco products, this might be the only measure strong enough to effectively whiten your teeth.

Before administering the treatment, the dentist will apply a special protective gel or install a rubber dam to your gums to protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Then, he will pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into trays that are held in your mouth.

The treatment time will vary depending on the severity of your tooth stains as well as your personal whitening goals. Once the bleaching procedure is complete, a special ultraviolet light can be used for additional whitening and to improve your smile’s luster.
