Your tooth enamel has microscopic textures where small staining particles and residue can adhere. If they are not removed on a daily basis, they can slowly start to penetrate the enamel layer and setting the stains in deeply. The depth of the stains on your teeth will directly influence the whitening products or treatment that Dr. Scott Elrod recommends.

If the teeth in your smile are deeply stained or you haven’t been impressed with your results from retail level whitening products, you should ask Dr. Scott Elrod about a dental bleaching treatment.  The concentration of whitening agents employed by this treatment represent the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile.

Dr. Scott Elrod will start by protecting your gums with a special gel or a rubber dam. A small amount of concentrated dental bleach is then poured into a mouth tray. This will be held in your mouth for a few minutes to allow the bleach to whiten your tooth enamel. 

How long the trays are held in your mouth depends on the depth and severity of the stains. A special ultraviolet light can be used to brighten your teeth further. Our professional teeth whitening treatments uses a powerful, safe whitening gel applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel lightens the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel. 

If you have moderate to deeply stained teeth, you should contact Distinctive Dental Services in Lake Jackson, Texas at 979-297-0337 to ask about a dental bleaching treatment. We are happy to help you achieve a confident smile!
