The Non-Invasive Way to Eliminate Stubborn Tooth Stains

Do you have tooth stains or discoloration on your teeth that just won’t go away? Have you tried whitening and think that maybe bonding or veneers are your only solution for finally finding a beautiful, white smile? There is a solution that is surprisingly simple – Enamel Micro Abrasion. Think about what microdermabrasion can do for your skin and apply that concept to your teeth. Enamel Micro Abrasion is the process of eliminating or greatly reducing the appearance of superficial enamel stains using an abrasive microparticle paste. We simply add a protectant to your gums, apply the paste and gently buff away the stain. The procedure’s success depends, of course, on the type and extent of the discoloration. The stains most affected by this procedure are often caused by fluorosis; excessive fluoride intake during the tooth forming years, hypoplasia; high fever or illness during enamel development, or demineralized spots after orthodontic treatment. Patients are excited to find that there is a conservative treatment option to explore for tooth stain removal before they decide to move on to a more complex procedure such as bonding or porcelain veneers.
