Microabrasion is a more advanced form of polishing that can be used for deeper stains which are part of the tooth structure i.e intrinsic rather than just on the surface. The same technique is applied but protection of the gum tissue is required as the paste contains a mild caustic agent which actually removes a few micrometres of the surface of the tooth and stain. The results can be very rewarding but it does depend on the extent of staining and therefore may not be suitable for everyone. Sometimes several visits may be required to achieve the desired final result.
