For millions of patients, the opportunity for a whiter smile can be obtained with the help of cosmetic dentistry and professional teeth whitening.
Understanding Teeth Whitening
Specially formulated peroxide solutions are applied to the enamel to break up and bleach away the sediments that are known to discolor the teeth. These solutions may be self-activated, or they may require light or heat in order to be activated. Without altering or changing the structure of the enamel, these solutions deliver oxygen deep inside the outer layer of the tooth to eliminate the appearance of stains.
When to Whiten Your Teeth
Bleaching or whitening the teeth is recommended whenever you have the desire for a whiter or brighter smile. Stains from coffee, tea, smoking, red wine, and berries can make your smile appear dull over time. If these stains cannot be removed with normal brushing or flossing, you may be interested in teeth whitening.
Often times, the aging process can take a toll on the brightness of your smile, causing the teeth to appear dull yellow or brown. Many of our mature patients are seeking whitening treatments in order to return to more youthful smiles.
