Tooth whitening is a method of lightening the colour of your teeth without the need to remove any surface tooth material. It is a popular treatment in these image-conscious times. White teeth project an attractive image and can be a signature of social confidence.
How does tooth whitening work?
The surfaces of your teeth gradually stain over the years from foods which may contain certain natural or artificial dyes, smoking, poor tooth brushing technique and beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine, and fizzy drinks. In some cases the porosity of the enamel is quite high making the teeth more likely to absorb stains.
There are two different methods of tooth whitening which can be used individually or in combination with one another:
Home whitening involves the use of carbamide or hydrogen peroxide gel which is applied to the teeth through custom-made trays (like gum shields). The trays should be worn for two to five hours per day over a period of two to three weeks for effective whitening.
