There are hundreds of teeth whitening products on the market, but professional whitenings will produce the best results in the shortest amount of time.
Professional teeth whitening products use strong, safe peroxides as their primary whitening ingredient. When a peroxide molecule comes into contact with a surface stain on the tooth enamel, it “breaks” the chemical bonds that hold the stain in place.
When your teeth are whitened at Dapper Dental, we create custom trays for you to ensure that the bleaching agent doesn’t damage your gums, and that all of your teeth are whitened properly.
Because peroxides only affect the outer enamel of the teeth, only surface stains can be treated. Stains from drinking coffee, tea, soda or wine, smoking or using other tobacco products, or yellowing caused by aging can all be treated with a professional teeth whitening.
However, teeth whitening cannot treat internal stains caused by antibiotics like tetracycline, or grayish teeth that are a result of a root canal or trauma. To correct these internal cosmetic issues, patients may require a different treatment, such as veneers, dental bonding, or a porcelain crowns.
At Dapper Dental, our teeth whitening services have benefits that will keep you smiling:
