Teeth whitening is a simple process. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter. 


 Teeth can become discolored from different causes including reactions to medication, aging, and heredity. Wine, smoking, certain foods and certain medical conditions also contribute to dull, yellow teeth. If you want a quick boost of confidence, this is a good way to start a rejuvenation program on your teeth. Bleaching discolored teeth can remove years from the appearance.


 Teeth can be whitened at home or in the office. Home whitening is usually preferred and consists of using custom-made trays that fit the teeth so the chemical whitening agent can remain in place for a specified time. In-office whitening can be a good start to a whitening program. In just an hour or so, the front teeth can be whitened several shades immediately with the balance of treatment taking place over the next few weeks at home.



 It’s important to talk to your dentist before deciding to whiten your teeth, as whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. For example, yellow teeth will probably bleach well, brown teeth may not respond as well and teeth with gray tones may not bleach at all. 


 Whitening will not work on caps,veneers, crowns or fillings. It also won’t be effective if your tooth discoloration is caused by medications or a tooth injury
