Teeth get stained from several factors. A major reason for teeth staining is the diet that you keep. Tea, coffee, and wine can severely stain teeth if they are consumed regularly, in addition to certain foods. Additionally, the outer layer of enamel, which is naturally white, starts to wear away over time. This happens at different rates from one person to another, but when it does, the layer underneath becomes more visible. This layer is called the dentin and is more yellow in appearance, so it makes your smile appear dingy or yellow.
Over-the-counter products like toothpaste and mouth rinses contain a low concentration of an active whitening ingredient, so they can only effectively target surface stains, and it takes a while for the results to become apparent. A professional treatment at Miller Family Dental, however, utilizes a higher concentration of the active ingredient. The solution can then penetrate the outer layer of enamel to break down stains underneath, making them less visible. The whiteness of your smile then becomes easier to see.
A teeth whitening treatment in Torrance, CA usually takes under an hour. Your dentist will start by cleaning your teeth to prepare them for the whitening solution. A barrier will then be placed around the gums to keep them protected from the solution, which can be irritating if it comes into contact. The whitening solution will then be painted onto the teeth. It will be activated with a special light. Your dentist will repeat this process of applying the solution and the light until your desired shade has been reached.
The advantage of a professional whitening treatment is that you will see dramatic results immediately and be able to enjoy them for longer than with an at-home treatment.
