Many people feel that a white and winning smile plays into their favor in many of life’s social settings. Unfortunately, the passage of time and the regular consumption of dark foods and beverages can darken and dull your smile.

Fortunately, your dentist, Dr. Bennett R. Shanker, can administer a professional bleaching treatment in Bridgeton, New Jersey, that uses whitening agents that are far more potent than any treatments you can find on store shelves.

At the start of the dental bleaching treatment, Dr. Bennett R. Shanker will protect your gums by installing a soft rubber dam or applying a protective gel.

Then, he will pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into trays that are inserted into your mouth. They will need to be held in place for a few minutes. The total duration of the treatment will vary depending on the deepness of your tooth stains. A special ultraviolet light might also be used to further brighten your teeth.

If you have a darkly stained smile that needs whitening, you should call Shanker Dental at 856-455-1183 to see if you are a good candidate for a professional bleaching treatment.
