Stains can penetrate your teeth, from a number of different sources, including dark food and drink, tobacco use or even simply the natural processes of aging. Stains on your teeth can sometimes be embarrassing and leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. This drives many people to want to explore their whitening options.
Choosing the right whitening product or procedure to whiten your smile, can have several different factors involved. So it’s a good idea to talk to Dr. Arnold H Brokstein before beginning a new whitening regimen.
If the teeth in your smile are deeply stained or you have been dissatisfied with the results you’ve seen from retail products, you talk to Dr. Arnold H Brokstein about a dental tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of whitening agents in a tooth bleaching procedure is the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile.
Before bleaching your teeth Dr. Arnold H Brokstein will apply a special gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Then he will then pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into trays that are inserted and held in your mouth.
The duration of the dental tooth bleaching procedure will vary depending on how deeply stained your teeth are, and your personal whitening goals. A special ultraviolet light might also be used to brighten your teeth further.
If you have questions or would like to explore your whitening options, you should call Dr. Arnold H Brokstein at 510-482-5700 to schedule an appointment.
