When you smoke, chew tobacco, or use other tobacco products it can introduce tar and other chemicals to your mouth. These agents are known for their ability to quickly saturate tooth enamel with significant dental stains. As the tobacco stains continue to accumulate on your teeth you will likely find the retail whitening products sold in stores to be ineffective at whitening your smile. In fact, some of these products could also cause harm to your teeth and gums.
One of the safest and most effective ways for whitening a significantly stained smile is to have Dr. Sandra L. Parker and her associates perform a dental bleaching treatment.
The process starts with Dr. Sandra L. Parker protecting your gums from the potent dental bleaching agents. Then she will pour a small amount of concentrated dental bleach into special trays. They will be inserted in your mouth along with a small suction wand. The total length of the treatment might vary depending on the severity of the dental stains. Once this is done, she will also use a special ultraviolet light might also be used to whiten minor problem areas.
