Teeth Whitening

Our teeth can discolor through the years as our enamel wears down. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes up the core of our teeth, to show through. This is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Teeth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach.

Teeth whitening methods

Take-home whitening kits. These whitening kits are purchased from your dentist for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is higher than that found in white-strips and over the counter whitening systems, which means it will take less time to reach your optimum whiteness. The dentist take an impression of your upper and lower teeth which is used to make thin, plastic whitening trays that are custom made to fit your mouth.

Whitening can be complicated by fillings in your front teeth or temporary cold sensitivity. Its best to consult your dentist to understand the whitening option that is best for you.
