Are you on the lookout to brighten the color of your teeth? Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses whitening gels to cosmetically enhance the color of stained or discolored teeth.
Types of enamel stains
Dental stains can be classified as intrinsic and extrinsic stains. Intrinsic stains are inside the tooth, whereas extrinsic stains are on the surface of the enamel. Although teeth whitening gels cannot penetrate deep inside the enamel to remove intrinsic stains, they can effectively remove surface stains caused due to medication, diet and beverage choices, bad oral hygiene, chewing tobacco, etc. Cosmetic teeth whitening procedures aim at minimizing and reducing surface stains.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is a non-invasive, chair-side teeth whitening procedure that is more effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening procedures. Patients can expect to obtain a much whiter and brighter tooth by a procedure that is painless and safe. Whiter and glowing teeth have the potential to change the appearance of your smile to make the patient look younger and attractive.
