San Jose, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2014
Japantown Dental is excited to announce that they are now offering a new teeth whitening technique. Air polishing is a technique used to remove external stains during regular cleaning appointments.
Dark teeth can be caused by a number of factors, which are separated into two categories: external stains and internal stains. External stains include coffee, wine, tea, smoking and chewing tobacco. Internal stains can be caused by certain medications, such as tetracycline, and direct trauma to the tooth.
There are several options for patients to obtain whiter teeth. Japantown Dental not only offers custom whitening options, which can target both external and internal stains, but they now also offer air polishing to remove those stubborn external stains during regular cleaning appointments.
Many times, removing external stains (coffee, wine, smoking, etc.) between teeth was especially challenging and not all stains could be removed without harming the tooth structure. Conventional dental instruments may be too wide to reach areas in between teeth and in the grooves of teeth.
Air polish is a procedure that uses a steady stream of pressurized air, water and a polishing agent to remove surface stains, plaque and other soft deposits without damaging the enamel (outer surface of teeth). Fine particles of powder are propelled into those hard to reach areas, resulting in whiter teeth.
