Tobacco use and frequently consuming dark beverages can cause significant dental stains to appear on the teeth in your smile. When this happens, the whitening products sold in stores often fail to have the potency needed to restore your smile’s white appearance.

In a situation like this, you will need to turn to Dr. Kenneth Browning Prince to have a dental bleaching treatment performed at his dental office in San Jose, California. The potent whitening agents and professional techniques our dentist uses can safely remove dental stains without risking harm to your teeth or gums.

Dr. Kenneth Browning Prince will first take measures to protect your gums from direct exposure to the powerful dental bleaching agents. This usually involves applying special gel or installing a special rubber dam.

This will protect your gums from being irritated during bleaching treatment. Dr. Kenneth Browning Prince will then pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into special trays that will be inserted in your mouth. This will gradually remove stains from the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel. At the end of the bleaching treatment, our dentist will use a special ultraviolet light to address any minor trouble spots.

In the future, you might want to limit your consumption of dark foods and beverages to prevent new dental stains from developing. You might also want to try brushing your teeth with a whitening toothpaste to help remove minor dental stains between dental cleanings.

If you live in the San Jose, California, area and you want a bright, white smile, you should call 408-243-5044 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment at Prince Dental Care.
