Home Dentistry in Dubai Teeth Scaling and Polishing

Teeth Scaling and Polishing

Maintaining your dental hygiene and oral health is crucial because various infections and diseases can be caused by dental bacteria and viruses. Regular dental visits for check-ups and cleanings can protect you from gum diseases and other dental problems, contributing to overall dental health. This care helps maintain the whiteness, strength, and alignment of your teeth over time.

However, without proper care, teeth can lose their natural white color and become discolored. Yellow teeth may affect your confidence and how you feel about your smile. We offer comprehensive teeth scaling and polishing services in Dubai, essential components of a thorough oral hygiene regimen.

What is Scaling?

Eating and drinking can lead to the accumulation of food particles and bacteria on our teeth, eventually forming dental plaque. With the passage of time, this plaque calcifies and hardens to form tartar. Regular teeth brushing and flossing can remove plaque, but tartar requires professional removal.

During the scaling treatment, dentists use special instruments to carefully remove plaque and tartar without damaging the gums or teeth.


Scaling is also effective for removing smaller pieces of tartar and plaque that are often found between the gum and teeth line or under the gums. During the procedure, manual scraping tools are used. These tools are intricately curved to match the profile of the teeth, ensuring thorough cleaning. The dentist applies gentle to moderate pressure to scrape off the tiny pieces of tartar from teeth. Continued scraping will eventually remove all the tough plaque from teeth.

What is Polishing?

Polishing, typically performed after scaling, further cleans the teeth by removing stains and making them shiny and smooth. Dentists use an instrument with a special paste to polish your teeth. 


For polishing, dentists use a small instrument with a soft rubber cup at its end, along with a special prophylaxis paste that provides the appropriate friction to the rubber surface. The paste is filled up in the cup which is then rotated at a slow speed. 

The gritty texture of the paste, combined with the gentle pressure from the rotating cup, effectively smoothens the teeth’s outer surface. Teeth polishing Dubai ensures complete cleaning of teeth and protects you from several periodontal diseases.


There are countless benefits to teeth scaling and polishing in Dubai, including the following:

  • Removes the plaque and tartar from your teeth.
  • Makes your teeth shiny and pearly white.
  • Protects you from gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis.
  • Effectively eliminates surface stains for a brighter smile and contributes to the overall strength and health of your teeth.
