SCALING & POLISHING
We understand the importance of maintaining a healthy and vibrant smile, which is why we offer professional scaling and polishing treatments to help you achieve optimal oral health. Scaling and polishing are integral parts of preventive dental care, aimed at removing plaque, tartar, and surface stains from your teeth.
Our skilled dental hygienists use specialized instruments to meticulously remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. These stubborn deposits can accumulate over time, particularly in hard-to-reach areas, and contribute to gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. Through thorough scaling, we effectively eliminate these harmful substances, promoting the health of your teeth and gums.
Once your teeth are scaled, our dental professionals perform dental polishing to smoothen the tooth surfaces. This step helps to remove surface stains, resulting in a cleaner and brighter smile. By eliminating stains caused by factors like coffee, tea, and tobacco, dental polishing enhances the aesthetic appearance of your teeth.
Here are the reasons why scaling and polishing are important:
- Removal of Plaque & Tartar
- Prevention of Gum Disease
- Halting Tooth Decay
- Fresher Breath
- Brighter, Whiter Teeth
- Early Detection of Oral Health Issues
Investing in regular scaling and polishing treatments is an investment in your oral health. By keeping your teeth and gums clean and free from harmful deposits, you can enjoy a healthier smile, fresher breath, and reduce the risk of dental problems in the future.
At Sultan Al-Olama Medical Center, we offer professional teeth whitening treatments that are safe, effective, and tailored to meet your specific needs. Our dental professionals will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and oral health to determine if teeth whitening is the right option for you. We consider factors such as the type and extent of tooth discoloration, the health of your teeth and gums, and any existing dental restorations. Based on your evaluation, our dental team will develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and goals. We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options, and we will recommend the most suitable approach for you.
We use advanced technology and techniques to activate the whitening gel, allowing it to break down stains and brighten your teeth. This treatment typically takes about an hour, and you can see immediate results. We will provide you with post-treatment instructions and guidance on maintaining your newly whitened smile. This may include recommendations on oral hygiene practices,
dietary adjustments, and periodic touch-up treatments to prolong the longevity of your teeth whitening results.
