Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening will restore the look of stained, dull, or discolored teeth.

The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like coffee and tea.

Food particles are naturally attracted to a tooth’s enamel. Products such as coffee and tea, berries and some juices are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth become more porous which makes them vulnerable to staining.

Some stains caused by traumatic injuries, medications or fluorosis begin inside the tooth. Brushing and flossing will not help this condition. Many people also choose tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and inhalant stains.

Some commercially available toothpastes can be relatively effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have abrasive substances that will wear away a tooth’s enamel.
