Dark foods and drinks, regular tobacco use, or even the simple natural processes of aging can cause stains on the teeth in your smile. Selecting the best whitening products or procedures to improve your smile, will largely be determined by how deeply stained your teeth are as well as your personal whitening goals.

You should always talk to Dr. Maureen Toal before starting a new whitening routine. This is the safest and most effective way to select the whitening products or procedures to meet your whitening goals

If you haven’t been satisfied with your results from consumer level whitening products offered in stores, or your teeth are deeply stained, you should ask Dr. Maureen Toal about a dental tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of whitening agents in the tooth bleaching procedure is the most effective way to whiten the teeth in your smile.

Before bleaching your teeth Dr. Maureen Toal will protect your gums by applying a special gel or a rubber dam. Next, a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel is poured into trays that are inserted into your mouth. Afterward a special ultraviolet light might also be used for additional whitening.

If you have questions or would like to explore your whitening options, please feel free to call Dr. Maureen Toal at 602.485.0505 to schedule an appointment.
