There are several dark foods and beverages that can slowly penetrate the microscopic pores in your tooth enamel, causing your teeth to become deeply stained. Stained teeth can leave you self-conscious about your smile, which can result in exploring your whitening options.

You should always consult with your dentist, Dr. Rebecca Barfield, before starting any new whitening program. Only she has the knowledge and experience you need to find the right whitening products or treatments to give you the whitest smile possible.

Our Jolly Family Dentistry bleaching treatment is the safest and most effective way to whiten your smile. The concentration of whitening agents used will give you a whiter smile than the one you will achieve with the whitening products sold in stores.

At the start of the tooth-bleaching procedure, your dentist will apply a special gel or a rubber dam to your gums to protect them from the potent bleaching agents. Once this is done, she will pour a small amount of concentrated bleaching gel into the trays that are inserted and held in your mouth.

The total time required for the dental-bleaching procedure will depend on how deeply stained your teeth are and your personal whitening goals. A special ultraviolet light might also be used to brighten your teeth further.

If you are interested in Dr. Rebecca Barfield’s dental-bleaching procedure in Little Rock, Arkansas, you should call 501.228.6360 to schedule an appointment.
