How is it done?
To remove a thin layer of the enamel, an acid-abrasive gel is applied to the tooth surface. It is then lightly polished until the staining or roughness gradually disappears.
After the microabrasion and/or teeth whitening, home application of a remineralising crème such as GC Tooth Mousse or GC Tooth Mousse Plus, is recommended for a period of time to enrich the treated tooth enamel with calcium and phosphate minerals for added strength and shine.
What can it do for me?
- Improves the appearance of white spots
- Removes surface stains
- Improves surface texture
- Minimally invasive and preserves natural tooth structure
- Can make teeth appear brighter overall
- May improve the results of teeth whitening if done prior
Restorative treatments such as infiltration resin or composite/porcelain veneers may be the next step if microabrasion and dental bleaching are unable to achieve the desired result.
