Moderately Stained Tooth Enamel Can Be Brightened by a Dental Whitening Gel

Posted .

Your tooth enamel has microscopic pores that small dark particles can sometimes adhere to. As time passes these stains can penetrate deeper and deeper into the tooth enamel. The depth of the stains will determine the best method to whiten the smile.

It’s wise to consult with Dr. Corey Johnson before starting any whitening program. The extensive training and experience he has can help you find the safest most effective method for whitening your smile in the shortest amount of time.

A whitening gel can help brighten teeth with moderate stains. In many cases, these stains are caused by regular exposure to dark foods and beverages. Without other means to mitigate the stains, like whitening toothpaste or whitening strips, these stains gradually set too deep into the enamel to be brightened by other consumer grade means.

Most whitening gels available in stores will employ concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, in concentrations that are stronger than most other retail whitening products.

You simply pour a little into the trays provided. The trays are then inserted into your mouth and held there for up to half an hour. If any of the whitening gel gets on your gums, you should remove it immediately with a clean cotton swab.

If your teeth are deeply stained, or you just haven’t been satisfied by your results from whitening products sold in stores. In a situation like this, Dr. Corey Johnson can administer a dental bleaching treatment. This is the safest and most effective way to whiten your teeth.

If the teeth suffer from moderate to deep stains, you should call Dr. Corey Johnson in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, at 970-945-9119 to find the best method to whiten your smile.
