It’s an unfortunate truth that most of the whitening products available on store shelves lack the ability to remove stains that have set into tooth enamel. There are a small number of dental bleaching gels that are strong enough to improve a moderately stained smile. However, they can pose a serious threat to the health of your teeth and gums. This draws many people to schedule a whitening consultation at Cox and Manegold Dentistry.
Dr. Cox, Dr. Manegold, and our staff have the years of extensive training and experience to help you find the safest method for whitening your smile. Oftentimes, this calls for your dentists to administer a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents they employ can remove stains from deep within the tooth enamel while also protecting your mouth from harm.
Your dentists start by applying a special protective gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Your dentists will then pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into a special bleaching tray. Then that tray will be inserted in your mouth and held there for a few minutes.
The duration of the bleaching treatment will depend on the severity of the stains. Once the bleach has done its job, your dentists will likely use a special ultraviolet light to eradicate spot stains from small troubled areas.
If you live in the West Chester, Ohio, area and you’re struggling with a severely stained smile, you should call 513-777-5513 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at Cox and Manegold Dentistry.
