A bright smile is perceived as a healthy smile, increasing the impression of youth, vitality, happiness, and warmth. A professionally developed teeth whitening system available only from your dentist – as opposed to over-the-counter brands – is one of the most effective and economical ways to enhance a healthy smile.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Stains on teeth can be classified in one of two ways: extrinsic or intrinsic. Extrinsic stains appear on the surface of your teeth. Intrinsic stains live between the micro cracks in your enamel and deep within your dentin (the layer of tooth underneath the enamel). Whitening kinds of toothpaste and mouth rinses may be able to remove some of the extrinsic stains on your teeth. But only professional teeth whitening agents can remove the stubborn extrinsic stains and the unsightly intrinsic stains that cause your teeth to look discolored.
Why choose a professional whitening system instead of over-the-counter products?
