A winning smile plays in your favor in so many situations in life. Many people that are struggling with stains on the teeth in their smile often consult with Dr. Angela Catalano to explore their options for a brighter, whiter smile.

Regardless of the depth of the stains on your teeth, you should always consult with our dentist before you start using a new teeth whitening product. Deeply stained teeth can rarely be whitened by whitening toothpaste or strips. In most cases, the only way to effective improve this level of staining is to have our Innovative Dentistry team apply a professional bleaching treatment. The concentration of whitening agents in a tooth bleaching procedure is the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile.

The process starts by applying a special gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them from the powerful bleaching agents. Then, we will pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into trays that are held in your mouth for a few minutes. The duration of the treatment can vary depending on how deeply stained your teeth are, and your personal whitening goals. Once the bleaching is done, a special ultraviolet light might also be used for additional whitening and luster.

If you have moderate to deeply stained teeth, please contact our Innovative Dentistry team in Las Vegas, Nevada at (702) 508-0191 to ask about a our professional bleaching treatment.
