Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to remove surface stains from the teeth. A number of over-the-counter products are available that promise to increase the brightness of your smile, but you are sure to achieve better results with professionally administered tooth whitening treatments. The office of Chesterfield Hilltown Dental offers quality whitening solutions from Opalescence teeth whitening brand.
The Opalescence whitening system offers brilliant results for your smile. It effectively works on the intrinsic stains on your teeth which commonly occur between the dentin and the small cracks in the enamel of the teeth. The Opalescence gel contains an active whitening ingredient that penetrates the tooth enamel to reach any discolored molecules. Oxygen molecules from the whitening agents react with these molecules, breaking the bonds that hold them together. You are then left with a brighter, whiter smile.
While teeth whitening is not a permanent treatment, you can extend the effects through proper care of your teeth and avoiding tobacco products and excessive consumption of coffee, red wine or tea. Also, if you wear restorations such as veneers, crowns or fixed bridges, they will need to be replaced before or after your whitening treatment, since they are not affected by the whitening agent.
Professional teeth whitening can give you long-lasting, dramatic results in just a single session.
