Enamel Microabrasion is a healthy and helpful tool for whitening teeth and improving smiles.
There are several ways to get your teeth whitened. From Invisalign to different kinds of whitening toothpaste, the teeth whitening scene has continued growing for several years. Nonetheless, many teeth whitening options are expensive and sometimes completely ineffective. That’s where enamel microabrasion comes in.
Microabrasion is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that helps to whiten your teeth. Whether your teeth have yellowed or discoloured due to a poor dental routine or drinking too much coffee, microabrasion might be right for you.
Why Choose Microabrasion?
If you are looking for a way to improve the colour of your smile and traditional teeth whitening treatments have not given the results you want, enamel microabrasion may help you meet your smile goals.
Your Leederville dentist might recommend that you try enamel microabrasion if your teeth are discoloured so that you can restore your beautiful smile.
Teeth discolouration can happen for many reasons, including:
- Tetracycline staining
- Smoking and tobacco use
- Consuming foods and drinks that stain
- Tooth decay
- Dental trauma
- Poor oral hygiene
- Antibiotics, infection or illness
We can discuss different ways to address these underlying factors and provide microabrasion so that your new smile can last!
Advantages of Microabrasion
- You won’t feel any pressure or vibration on your mouth throughout the process.
- Anaesthesia may not be needed anymore. This is especially the case for a minor tooth cavity.
- Microabrasion is more conservative as it leaves behind healthy tooth tissues.
- This procedure helps reduce the risk of tooth chipping/cracking.
- This can be done in several areas in your mouth, all in one visit.
How it Works
The process of enamel microabrasion is simple and isn’t quite as invasive as it sounds.
The simple procedure is a 4-step process.
- The teeth need to be isolated from the rest of the mouth to not catch the gums or damage any parts of soft tissues.
- The microabrasion tool removes discoloured enamel while being carefully guided by the dental professional.
- After the discoloured part is removed, the teeth are polished with an acid abrasion slurry.
- The teeth are finally cleaned and rinsed.
Your smile will be noticeably whiter afterwards, and you’ll be able to keep it that way by taking care of your teeth.
After all, the best way to make sure that your teeth stay white is through proper dental hygiene and being cautious about what you eat.

What is Microabrasion?
Enamel microabrasion is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can serve as an alternative to conventional teeth whitening. It can remove any stubborn discolouration and improve the overall colour of your teeth.
It is a gentle process that will not harm your teeth, and your smile’s appearance can be significantly enhanced afterwards.
Is there any aftercare after the enamel microabrasion procedure?
For the rest of the day, drink only plain water or plain milk. However, anything else should be taken through a straw as the teeth can stain easily during this time. The next day the teeth are back to normal.
