HOW TEETH WHITENING WORKS
It is good for you to understand the procedure before you make a decision to make your teeth whiter. Teeth discoloration can be caused by many thing including age, food, wine and tobacco. These stains can be removed by simply bleaching your teeth and it can even whiten the natural color of your teeth so that they are beyond the whitest natural shade. The common methods of bleaching include brushing using special toothpaste, bleaching strips, gels or pen. These are easy to use at home but there are also special whitening procedures that can only be done by an expert dentist. When you choose to have your teeth professionally whitened, this will be achieved with bleaching agents containing hydrogen and carbamide peroxide. Substantial concentration of this exposed to the enamel will penetrate its rod like structure to be deposited in the dentin where it removes stubborn stains. When having our in-office whitening system performed, this process is accelerated by the use of an LED light.
