We use a great product called Sylc at our practice which is designed to remove stain and plaque efficiently. The Sylc (a type of bioactive glass powder) system lightens the tooth surface restoring its natural pearlessence. It can also remove coffee and tobacco stains in a shorter period of time than other methods.
Sylc can be a perfect product to use before tooth whitening in order to prepare the teeth for the bleaching gel.
Due to its properties, Sylc will only remove stain and damaged tooth material, leaving healthy tooth material intact.
There are some great benefits for you as a patient as the system can remove stains with less soft tissue irritation and no salty taste, it can help remove more stubborn plaque, it can lead to less sensitive brighter and healthier teeth and is a restoration process that continues between visits to the dentist.
