Understanding the Basics
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Tooth stains are caused by pigments becoming stuck and bonded to the tiny pores in our teeth over time. Pigments like tannins from coffee, wine, tea and cola can become bonded to our teeth and stain them. Some foods, like berries and tomatoes, can also cause stains. Microscopic particles from tobacco can also bond to the teeth if you smoke or use oral tobacco products like chewing tobacco.
Teeth whitening uses a special compound called a “peroxide” to whiten your teeth. Commonly-used peroxides include hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. These peroxides contain highly-volatile oxygen molecules, which react violently when they contact stains on your enamel. This reaction breaks the bonds that hold the stain in place, removing it from your enamel and restoring the natural, white color of your teeth.
Why Choose Whitening?
The Benefits Of A Brighter Smile
Teeth whitening has a number of great benefits. First, it allows you to reverse teeth staining and yellowing, and makes you feel more self-confident about your appearance. If your teeth are heavily stained, you may feel self-conscious about smiling, laughing or even eating in public. Teeth whitening helps you feel great about your smile again!
Teeth whitening is also very affordable. It’s typically one of the cheapest cosmetic dentistry treatments available, so you can whiten your teeth even if you’re on a tight budget. It’s also completely non-invasive and does not hurt or have any unpleasant side effects.
The effects last a long time, too. Depending on how well you care for your teeth, your new smile can last anywhere from 1-3 years. Regular touch-up treatments can extend your treatment even further.
