Why Professional Teeth Whitening Services?
Over-the-counter teeth whitening products, such as whitening strips, trays, gels, and toothpastes, will work to temporarily remove a small amount of surface stains on teeth, but require a consistent regime in order to achieve desired results.
The main advantage of professional teeth whitening services is the reduced time commitment and upkeep required to reach your goal. In-office whitening done by a dentist is typically quicker and more effective than over the counter solutions, as dentists are able to use stronger bleaching agents that are not available to the general public.
In addition, if you have sensitive teeth or gums, a dentist will be able to help identify this and take steps to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. It is always better to choose in-office teeth whitening versus over-the-counter products if you have existing sensitivities.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Discoloured teeth are a normal part of the aging process, which may be caused by either surface-level stains or the thinning of the enamel layer of your teeth.
Surface stains can be caused by a variety of activities, such as drinking coffee or red wine, consuming carbonated drinks, or smoking regularly. Typically, the process of removing surface stains is more straightforward and can often be accomplished in an appointment of 30 minutes or less.
If your teeth are discoloured due to thinning enamel, it is more complicated. The enamel layer gives our teeth their white look. Beneath the enamel is what’s called the dentin layer, which is naturally yellower in colour. Once the enamel begins to thin and the dentin is exposed, it can lead to a gradual discolouration of the teeth.
Whitening toothpastes and mouth rinses might be able to remove surface stains, but they won’t be able to alter the dentin discolouration. To accomplish this, you will require professional whitening and bleaching products that only a dentist can provide.
The active component in most professional whitening gel is hydrogen peroxide, which is to penetrate into the dentin layer of the teeth and re-stain the structure of each tooth. To learn more about the teeth whitening process, book an appointment with our team today.
