Teeth whitening is a treatment that involves applying a peroxide gel to the teeth so they reach a bright white shade.
Several causes explain the undesirable colouring of your natural teeth. Indeed, your teeth may be covered superficially with an accumulation of plaque and/or tartar. These deposits are coloured during frequent consumption of coffee, tea, red wine or use of tobacco products.
A simple treatment of teeth (cleaning and polishing) performed by one of our dentists is enough to eliminate these so-called “superficial” stains. However, it happens that the colour is housed in the tooth enamel or dentin and may require bleaching in order to achieve optimal results.
Natural ageing, diet, the use of tobacco products, the taking of certain drugs of the tetracycline family, the intake of too much fluoride in infancy and decay can cause these colourings that are forming inside the tooth.
Tooth whitening is an effective treatment to eliminate these stains. However, it should be noted that some colorations react better to treatment than others. When you start a whitening treatment with us, we follow its progression all along the process so that, together, we can achieve the best results.
