Enamel can only be so whitened. When in-office bleaching is ineffective or you’re just not happy with the color, many dentists will suggest microabrasion. During this procedure, your dentist will apply a mild acid and abrasive to the surface of the teeth to remove white and brown spots. This procedure is painless and usually effective, except on stains that are embedded too deep in the enamel or dentin.
If you’re not a candidate for microabrasion, porcelain veneers may be your only alternative for the brightest smile you could want.
