Dark stains on your teeth from things like tobacco use, dark foods and drinks can leave you with an unappealing smile. The depth and degree of staining on the teeth in your smile will go a long way towards determining which whitening products and procedures are called for to effectively whiten your smile.

It’s a good idea to talk to your dentist before starting any whitening routine. They are trained to help you understand the products and procedures that can brighten you smile while also being mindful of your long term oral health.

If your teeth are deeply stained, or you simply haven’t been satisfied with your results from store-bought whitening products, you should ask your dentist about their dental tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of whitening agents used in the procedure is the most effective way to brighten your smile.

Before bleaching your teeth, your dentist will protect your gums by applying a special gel or rubber dam. Next, they pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into trays that you will hold in your mouth. The duration of treatment will vary depending on how deeply stained your teeth are and your overall whitening goals. The dentist might also use a special ultraviolet light to further whiten your teeth.
