Microabrasion offered by Boain Dental Care, Gives Florissant, MO Patients A Whiter, Brighter Smile
Microabrasion is a specialized tooth whitening technique employed by Florissant, MO’s Boain Dental Care. As more and more patients inquire on ways they can gain a whiter, brighter smile, Dr. Boain wants them to understand what options are available through Boain Dental Care.
Microabrasion is a combination of two teeth whitening methods that focus on the tooth’s enamel. The first method is known as mechanical whitening, in which stains and discoloration are minimized through the use of tiny abrasives. When you purchase toothpaste that claims to possess teeth whitening properties, it usually means that toothpaste contains mild micro abrasives that are meant to remove stains through the act of brushing. Dr. Boain performs mechanical whitening as part of microabrasion, but rather than using common whitening toothpaste, a special abrasive compound is carefully applied to the tooth’s enamel. The second part of microabrasion is known as chemical whitening. Chemical whitening is completed through the use of a bleaching agent. This can be used to remove stains on teeth through an oxidation process, but it can also be used to adjust the overall color of the teeth. Chemical whitening also gives teeth a much sought-after sheen or glisten that Boain Dental Care patients especially love.
Microabrasion has been used to target specific discolorations, dark stains and white speckles. The process can be very successful for patients with mild to moderate tooth discoloration. Many of Dr. Boain’s patients have been satisfied with the effects of their microabrasion procedure, and find it a suitable and cost effective alternative to veneers or crowns. If you’re seeking a whiter smile but you’re unsure whether Microabrasion or another whitening method will work for you, Dr. Boain welcomes your call and the opportunity to help you decide.
