Dreaming Of A White Christmas? Try Professional Teeth Whitening

Why Do Teeth Stain?

Snow starts out as white but if you throw some dirt on it, it will turn brown. Your teeth are similar. They’re porous which means they absorb anything they come into contact with like a sponge. Certain foods and drinks can cause tooth staining as well as habits like smoking. Your teeth might also become stained due to your genetics, from taking tetracycline antibiotics in the past, or from fluorosis.

The only way to prevent your teeth from becoming stained is to avoid the foods and drinks known to stain your teeth and avoid habits that might stain your teeth. It’s also helpful to brush and floss regularly and visit us for regular dental cleanings so we can remove surface stains.

In some cases, brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings won’t be enough to maintain your white teeth. This is where professional teeth whitening comes into play.

What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is the process of making your teeth looking whiter with a product that has an active ingredient of hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide works as an oxidizing agent that breaks down and forms unstable free radicals that latch onto organic pigment molecules which creates a whitening effect. The concentration of the bleaching compound and the time it rests on the teeth determine how much it will whiten the teeth.
