Our teeth become stained over time because enamel, the porcelain-like surface of our teeth that once started out sparkling white, starts to hold stains within its pores and becomes more transparent and permits the yellow color of dentin, the tooth’s core material, to show through. Enamel is designed to protect teeth from the effects of chewing, gnashing, trauma and acids attacks caused by sugar but over time stains and debris will inevitably accumulate. This eventually results in our teeth developing a dull, lackluster appearance that most people will develop at one point in their lives. The solution is teeth whitening, a comfortable and safe treatment that reverses the effects of stains and aging.
For those who have tried other teeth whitening approaches but haven’t been happy with the results, we also offer teeth bleaching. This uses more powerful whiteners that are designed to penetrate deeper into the teeth achieving even more dramatic results.
