If you could look at your teeth on a microscopic level, you would see minute texture variations and pores in the enamel. When staining particles from dark foods and beverages become trapped in these microscopic textures, they can slowly adhere and penetrate the enamel.

Fortunately, Dr. James E. Gaff’s dental bleaching treatment can remove even deep stains from tooth enamel. This is the safest and most effective way to restore your youthful, white smile

Before administering the bleaching treatment, your dentist will protect your gums by applying a special gel or a rubber dental dam over them. Then, he will pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into a tray that is held in your mouth. Once the bleaching treatment is done, he might use a special ultraviolet light to address any minor problem areas.

In the future, you might want to think about limiting your consumption of dark foods and beverages. You could also brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste. This will help you maintain your white smile between dental cleanings and spare you the expense of having future dental bleaching treatments administered.

If you have been struggling with significant staining issues on the teeth in your smile, you should call Dr. James E. Gaff at 904-641-2655 to have your teeth professionally whitened in Jacksonville, Florida.
