Tobacco is a complex plant with many chemicals and components. When you smoke or chew tobacco, it releases tar and a myriad of these chemicals into your mouth. This can have a significant adverse effect on your oral health, contribute to medical conditions, and cause significant stains to quickly develop on your teeth.
In just a short amount of time even minor tobacco stains can start to saturate into your tooth enamel. This can leave you with a smile that looks increasingly yellow, gray, or brown.
Unfortunately, the dental whitening product sold in stores rarely are potent enough to fully remove set in tobacco stains from teeth. In a situation like this you will need Dr. Richard J. Gawarzewski and his staff specialists to administer a dental bleaching treatment. This represents the most effective method for safely restoring your white smile.
Dr. Richard J. Gawarzewski will start by carefully protecting your gums from direct exposure to the potent whitening agents. This usually involves him applying special gel or installing a special rubber membrane over your periodontal tissues.
A small amount of the concentrated dental bleaching agent will then be poured into special trays that will be inserted in your mouth with a small suction device. This will gradually remove stains from the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel.
Dr. Richard J. Gawarzewski might also use a special ultraviolet light to address any minor trouble spots that remain after the dental bleaching.
