Tooth discolouration can be either on the outside of teeth as a surface stain or internal. Tooth whiteners are peroxide based products designed to lighten the discolouration. They can also penetrate your enamel to lighten the overall appearance of your tooth.
In office, take home and over the counter
There are three popular methods for tooth whitening. In-office lightening is where bleach is applied to the tooth and light energy is used to create heat to speed the reaction. Some patients may select a take-home kit where the bleach is applied in several doses to lighten gradually. The third popular option is an over-the-counter kit where the bleach is applied via pre-dosed strips.
We can determine the right solution
Unfortunately not all discolourations will respond to the bleach, nor will it penetrate artificial materials such as fillings or crowns. It is best to talk to your dentist to determine the most effective solution for your needs.
