With so many high-tech teeth whitening treatments available these days, there’s one method that’s often overlooked: dental microabrasion. While this type of teeth whitening isn’t a fit for every patient and every type of staining, it is highly effective, affordable, and pain-free.
How Enamel Microabrasion Works
If the stains on your teeth are in the outermost layer of tooth enamel, dental microabrasion may be a good choice for you. This type of stain and discoloration is typically caused by drinking tea, red wine, or coffee or using tobacco products. Removing a thin layer of enamel removes the staining.
There is no anesthetic needed for dental microabrasion because all of the work on your teeth is external. The treatment itself is simple—we remove the stained enamel, then polish your teeth with an abrasion slurry. The procedure is typically completed in a single appointment.
Microabrasion permanently removes the stained enamel and as long as you don’t return to the habits that caused your stains in the first place, you can expect lasting results.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Microabrasion
Is microabrasion safe for teeth?
Yes, the microabrasion treatment we provide in our office is safe; we work conservatively to ensure that we only remove the outermost layer of tooth enamel and no more.
How long does enamel microabrasion last?
The results of your enamel microabrasion can last for decades with proper care and upkeep, including brushing for two minutes twice a day, dental cleanings every six months, and following our aftercare instructions. If, however, you return to the habits that caused your stains, you can expect new stains to appear.
How much does microabrasion cost?
The cost of your microabrasion procedure depends on the number of teeth being treated. Microabrasion is a more affordable alternative to other teeth whitening treatments, with the cost typically ranging between $50 and $250.
What is the most effective teeth whitening treatment?
There are many options to give you a whiter smile; choosing the one that’s right for you depends on the type of stains you have and how severe your stains are. Dental microabrasion is the most cost-effective means of treatment for teeth with extrinsic, or external, stains on the enamel.
How can I whiten my teeth in one day?
One of the many benefits of dental microabrasion is that it allows you to whiten your teeth in a single day. Most at-home whitening kits require a week or more of use before you see any noticeable results.
