It's easier than ever to have a brighter, whiter smile!
Have you been wondering what it would be like to have whiter teeth and a brighter smile? You are not alone. When asked about what they would like to change about their smile, most people responded that they wanted whiter teeth. Tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. It is an easy way to brighten yellow, stained teeth and remove any discoloration. Isn't it time you enjoyed the white smile you've always desired?
How Do Teeth Get Stained and Discolored?
Teeth are made up of outer enamel, and inner dentin layers. When you consume foods or beverages with staining agents such as coffee or red wine, a coating called a pellicle film begins forming on your enamel. If not removed by careful brushing and dental cleanings, the pellicle film will start to enter your tooth through the porous enamel surface.
Over time, you will notice your teeth becoming more and more stained and discolored. Once the stains are not on the surface anymore and they enter your enamel, regular brushing or dental cleanings can't remove them. You will need teeth whitening treatments to bleach your teeth and lift the stains. You can enjoy whiter teeth once again!
Can whitening work on any teeth?
Teeth whitening will work best on yellow teeth. Ones that are gray or brown will not respond as well. Additionally, teeth discolored due to trauma or medication do not usually respond to whitening. Tooth whitening does not work on restorations such as fillings, crowns, or dentures, but if used on surrounding teeth, it will not cause damage.
Is teeth whitening safe?
While brushing your teeth aggressively or abusing your teeth in any way can damage them, tooth whitening has been shown to be safe, especially when performed at a dentist’s office. During the whitening process, the ingredients used will open the pores in your teeth temporarily and will lift the stains.
Experiencing some tooth sensitivity during the whitening process is normal. Your teeth may become temporarily dehydrated, reducing their ability to insulate the nerve from temperature changes. Tooth sensitivity is a temporary condition that will soon resolve. After each tooth whitening session, your teeth will naturally remineralize and rehydrate.
