What is Teeth Whitening?

Over time, our teeth show a certain degree of wear and tear. Heredity, food and drink stains, worn tooth enamel, and stains from smoking cause teeth to lose their natural white beauty. With tooth whitening technology at Family Gentle Dentists, saying goodbye to discoloration is easy and affordable. Teeth whitening is a process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. Hydrogen Peroxide is the active ingredient in whitening gel and as it is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged.

Why should I whiten my teeth?

Why do it? Aging and consumption of many substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. cause tooth discoloration. Also, consumption of certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride during tooth formation may cause tooth discoloration.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, whitening is likely the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. Tooth whitening is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women. At Family Gentle Dentists we apply the safest teeth whitening procedures and latest technologies.
