Consuming dark foods and beverages can dull the whiteness of your smile, leaving you feeling self-conscious in social settings. At the same time, the natural aging process or the occasional tobacco use can also cause deep tooth stains.

It’s best to consult with your dentist, Dr. Sonny Ashfar, before embracing any new whitening product. Our highly trained staff of dental professionals will make sure you are using the best products and treatments that safely and effectively whiten your smile.

At the start of the bleaching treatment, our Star Dental team will take measures to protect your gums from the potent bleaching agents, which will usually involve placing a temporary rubber dam over them.

Once your gums are safely protected, your dentist will pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into trays that are inserted into your mouth and held there. The duration of the treatment will depend on the deepness of your tooth stains. To complete the treatment, a special ultraviolet light will be used to further brighten your teeth.

If you are interested in a bleaching treatment in Roseville, California, you should call Dr. Sonny Ashfar at 916.773.6222 to set up an appointment.
