Smoking, chewing tobacco, and other forms of tobacco use can introduce tar, and other chemicals to your mouth. While they certain can affect your oral health, and other medical conditions, these substances can also cause significant dental stains to appear on the teeth in your smile.
At the same time, the whitening products sold in stores often lack the potency to remove tobacco stains. Even some of the stronger options could prove harmful to your teeth and soft tissues in your mouth.
The potent whitening agents and professional techniques available at Dr. Kelly Wilson’s clinic can safely remove tobacco stains from the teeth in your smile. This often involves Dr. Kelly Wilson performing a dental bleaching treatment.
Dr. Kelly Wilson will start by taking measure to your gums to protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Then he 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 duration of the bleaching treatment might vary depending on how deeply the tobacco stains penetrate your teeth. Once the bleaching is done, a special ultraviolet light might also be used to whiten minor problem areas.
If you live in the Rocklin, California, area and your smile is suffering from tobacco stains, you should call 916-663-5555 to discuss a dental bleaching treatment at Rocklin Dental.
