Teeth Whitening 101
So, what exactly is teeth whitening? It’s pretty basic: it lightens teeth and helps remove stains and discoloration. It’s among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can vastly improve how your teeth look. How do teeth get discolored or stained? It’s a slow process, but one that never lets up.
• Tobacco use
• Drinking dark colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
• Not taking good care of your teeth
Virtually every patient who prefers a teeth whitening solution sees moderate to substantial improvement in the brightness and whiteness of their smile. However, whitening is not a permanent solution to discoloration. It requires proper maintenance or touch-ups for a longer lasting effect.
Why Teeth Whitening?
Most of us start out with bright white teeth, thanks to their porcelain-like enamel surface. Tooth enamel is composed of microscopic crystalline rods and is designed to protect the teeth from the effects of chewing, gnashing, trauma and acid attacks brought about by sugar. As time passes your enamel wears down and becomes much more transparent. All of this adds up to your tooth’s dentin, or core material, to show through resulting in a yellowish color.
Did you know during routine chewing, dentin remains intact while millions of micro-cracks occur in the enamel? That’s a lot of cracking. It’s these cracks that gradually fill up with stains, debris and other bacteria. Teeth whitening removes these stains and debris, leaving the enamel cracks open and exposed. Some of the cracks are re-mineralized via saliva, while others are filled up with organic debris.
