Dental stains on the teeth in your smile can be embarrassing and cause you to guard certain facial expressions. This is even more likely to be a problem for tobacco users, as tobacco introduces chemicals and potent tar residue to the mouth. This could leave you with a deeply stained smile in a very short amount of time.
In a situation like this, scheduling a whitening consultation with Dr. Jacob Avner can help you understand your options for restoring your smile’s appearance. In just a single appointment he determine the severity of your dental stains and the safest most effective method for removing tobacco stains from your teeth.
This often calls for Dr. Jacob Avner to administer a dental bleaching treatment. The potent whitening agents and professional tools he uses can safely resolve significant dental stains without harming your mouth. This is typically done in a single outpatient appointment.

Once this is done, he will pour a small amount of the concentrated bleaching agent into special trays. You will need to hold them, and a small suction wand, in your mouth for a few minutes while the dental bleach whitens your teeth. Dr. Jacob Avner might also use a special ultraviolet light to address any minor problems spots. This will fully restore your smile’s white gleam.
