Why Do Teeth Change Color?
There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including food and drinks like coffee, tea, wine and tobacco. Medications and disease can also cause discoloration, and your teeth naturally darken with age.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening is a simple process. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.
Why Get Your Teeth Whitened in a Dental Office?
Dr. Dunson will use a procedure called Philips Zoom! in-office whitening, which can unlock a smile up to 8 shades whiter in just 45 minutes. The added bonus? You get outstanding results with little to no sensitivity.
When you choose in-office tooth whitening, stronger whitening ingredients are used to safely complete your treatment. The result?
You’ll leave the dentist chair with an instantly brighter, more confident smile.
Finally, professional teeth whitening in Dr. Dunson’s office can last for one or more years, depending on how well you take care of your teeth, and if you’re following up regularly with a home whitening product for regular maintenance.
