Unsightly stains that penetrate into your tooth enamel can leave you with a disconcertingly yellow smile that is not easily improved by the whitening products sold in stores. A whitening consultation with Dr. Milad Nourahmadi can help you find the most effective method of fully whitening your smile.

This often calls for a dental bleaching treatment. The professional-strength whitening agents your dentist uses are very potent. First, he will take measures to protect your gums by installing a soft rubber dam or by applying a protective gel to your gums before the dental bleaching treatment.

Your dentist will then pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching gel into a tray that is inserted into your mouth. It will need to be held in place for a few minutes. The length of the treatment will vary depending on the severity of your tooth stains.

Once this is completed, your dentist will likely also use a special ultraviolet light to brighten any trouble spots and improve the luster of your smile.

Once white smile has been fully restored, you might want to consider cutting back on dark foods and beverages to prevent future stains. This could include drinking dark beverages through a straw or brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association.
