Why Professional Teeth Whitening Matters So Much

With the heavy push for its availability and the marketing success achieved for teeth whitening, many different options have become available for consumers to improve their dental appearance. However, just because the treatment is available doesn’t mean a particular approach is the safest. Fundamentally, teeth whitening involves the use of chemicals that interact with the teeth. Often referred to as “bleaching,” the products do use components that have a strong effect on the surface of the tooth treated. 

What Causes Discoloration of Teeth

Teeth change color naturally for many reasons. Food is a significant cause, especially drinks that are strong in color and staining, such as coffee and wine. Similarly, habits can cause color changes as well, such as smoking and other tobacco use. Injury, where the tooth has been damaged and no longer receiving proper circulation, could also change the color. Finally, age causes the teeth to “yellow” slightly as the outer enamel layer wears off with use.

Teeth Whitening Treatment

The actual chemical process uses two active ingredients to do the work: carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. Both directly impact stains and reduce them to fragments that fall off or lose color. The result is lightening or removal of color altogether.

While there are over-the-counter options which some consumers gravitate to because of cost, self-application can be tricky. With a professional approach, the right amount of product is applied and monitored for any side effects.
