Natural teeth are not blazing white, but they do have a brightness which becomes dull over the years. The foods you eat and drink discolor and stain your teeth. With time, they become darker and may look dull and dingy. You may not even be aware of how dark they are until you see the difference that teeth whitening can make.
The most popular cosmetic dental treatment all over the world is teeth whitening. This one procedure can make a huge difference in your smile. Whitening your teeth can lift years from your appearance, causing you to look younger. It removes stains and discoloration from teeth, leaving you with a brighter smile.
Professional vs. Over-the-Counter Whitening
There are many over-the-counter whitening products that actually do a decent job with whitening teeth. The problem is that some are ineffective and can damage your teeth. When you have your teeth whitened by a professional, not only are you assured of a safe procedure, your dentist will monitor the change in color so your smile will look natural and healthy.
The entire process may take about an hour to perform. Your dentist or hygienist will monitor the whitening progress every few minutes. You may feel a little twinge every now and then as the bleaching agent works to remove stains. Whitening products in the stores remove stains on the surface of the teeth. When you have your teeth whitened in the dental office, the whitening agents go into the tooth to remove stains at a deeper level than products available commercially.
