Even occasional tobacco use can cause minor dental stains to quickly build up the faces of the teeth that appear in your smile. Frequent tobacco use, or frequently consuming dark beverages can also compound the appearance of dental stains to turn your smile an unsightly shade of yellow, tan, or gray.
At first you might be tempted by the whitening products sold in stores. Unfortunately, most of these items lack the potency to fully remove significant tobacco stains. Even some of the more potent options might potentially harm your teeth and gums.
If you find yourself struggling with a tobacco stained smile, you will likely need to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at Drs. Cynthia S. Becker & Cynthia A. Pistoia’s dental office. The potent whitening agents and professional techniques at Drs. Cynthia S. Becker & Cynthia A. Pistoia’s disposal represents the safest method for removing tobacco stains from your teeth.
Before administering the dental bleaching Drs. Cynthia S. Becker & Cynthia A. Pistoia will apply a special gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect your periodontal tissues. Then they will pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into trays that are held in your mouth for a few minutes.
The total duration of the bleaching treatment might vary depending on the severity of your tobacco stains. With the dental bleaching completed, Drs. Cynthia S. Becker & Cynthia A. Pistoia might also use special ultraviolet light to address any trouble spots. If you live in the Fishers, Indiana, area and your smile is suffering from significant tobacco stains, you should call 317-849-0999 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at My Dental Care.
