If minor surface stains are not removed in a timely manner, they can penetrate deep into the tooth enamel. Once this happens, retail whitening products are rarely potent enough to remove them. In many cases, the only way to effectively whiten badly stained teeth is to have your dentist, Dr. Kyle M. Triggs, administer a dental bleaching treatment in Anchorage, Alaska.

Before bleaching your teeth, your dentist will apply a special protective gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Your dentist will then pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into trays that are held in your mouth.

The treatment time will depend on the severity of the stains in your tooth enamel.

Once the bleaching procedure is complete, a special ultraviolet light can be used for additional whitening.

If you are interested in the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile, you should call Dentist in Anchorage, AK | Alaska Dental Associates at 907-562-2284 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment.
