If you are looking to whiten your teeth at a deeper level, Dr. Sumayyah Khan and Dr. Maja Sukovic offer micro abrasion treatments at Smile Studio 87. During this treatment, surface stains are eliminated by removing a very thin layer of enamel on your teeth. If this is a service you are interested in, call 630-427-2019 to speak with our dentists about micro abrasion in Woodridge, Illinois!

Our dentists may recommend enamel microabrasion to remove discolorations on your teeth and give you back a beautiful smile. Teeth may become discolored for any number of reasons, including:

  • Tetracycline staining
  • Smoking and other tobacco usage
  • Dietary habits (foods and drinks which stain)
  • Fluorosis (excessive consumption of fluoride)
  • Tooth decay
  • Dental trauma
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Antibiotics, infection or other illness

Enamel microabrasion is an alternative to traditional teeth whitening and works to remove even the smallest of discolorations and improve the appearance of your teeth. When you receive enamel microabrasion, our dentists will gently clean the stained areas of your teeth with a mild acid. This reduces or removes the discoloration so that we can prepare the tooth and restore its original color and shape. Your tooth is polished to complete the treatment, and the final result is indistinguishable from your other teeth.

While enamel microabrasion is an excellent solution for stains and discolorations on the tooth surfaces, deeper stains and discolorations within the tooth structure may require more extensive treatments to remove in order to brighten your smile.
