Dark foods and drink, tobacco use and the natural process of aging can stain and dull the enamel of the teeth in your smile. How deeply your teeth are stained will greatly determine which whitening products and procedures will be needed to meet your whitening goals.

Before starting any tooth whitening program, you should talk to your dentist. They are trained to help you find the safest most effective products to meet your whitening goals.

If you have deeply stained teeth or you are dissatisfied with the results you’ve seen from retail level whitening products, you should talk to your dentist about a bleaching procedure. The concentration of whitening agents is the most effective way to brighten your smile.

At the start of the procedure your dentist will protect your gums with a special gel or rubber dam. Once this is done they will pour a small amount of bleaching agent into a set of trays that are inserted into your mouth. After bleaching the dentist might also use a special ultraviolet light to further brighten your teeth.
