Our teeth can discolor through the years as our enamel wears down. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through. This is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Teeth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach.
Teeth Whitening involves the use of a custom fit, take home whitening kit. These whitening kits are purchased from your doctor for use at home. Usually the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks depending on the product.
