A smile that has been stained by dark foods and beverages, tobacco use and time can leave you feeling self-conscious. This might drive you to explore your options for restoring your bright, white smile.

If you’ve been dissatisfied with the consumer-grade whitening products sold in stores, or if your teeth are deeply stained, your Tree City Family Dental dentist, Dr. Connaughton, might recommend having a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents and professional techniques that we use represent the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile.

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

The total duration of the bleaching treatment will vary depending on the deepness your tooth stains and your personal whitening goals. Once the bleaching treatment 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 Tree City Family Dental at 208-286-2699 to schedule a dental bleaching treatment in Boise, Idaho.
