There are many factors that can affect the color of our teeth such as the foods we eat and drink, tobacco use, and certain medications we take. Also as we age our teeth naturally darken. Whitening is one of the easiest and fastest ways to improve the look of your smile.
For whiter, brighter and confident smile, we use Philips Zoom in our office.

How tooth bleaching works?
Bleaching gels usually contain either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. When applied to human teeth, peroxide molecules go into the tiny pores of the enamel and dentin. They break down into oxygen molecules and break up the stains that block out the light. Then, more and more light passes through the teeth and they appear lighter.
Yellow to slightly brown intrinsic stains that accumulate over time respond best to bleaching. Intrinsic stains that are dark brown to blue- gray are the most difficult to bleach because the stain is so deeply embedded into the tooth.
