What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a simple yet effective way to revitalize your smile. Also called bleaching, teeth whitening uses a powerful but safe whitening gel to whiten the color of your teeth. The whitening gel is applied directly to the surface of your teeth and allowed to absorb into your tooth enamel. In just one or two treatments, you will notice that your teeth are brighter and whiter. You can rest assured that professional teeth whitening in Marlborough, Connecticut, is safe; this process will not damage your teeth, although you may experience an increase in tooth sensitivity during and immediately after your whitening treatment.

What stains teeth?

Several factors may contribute to tooth discoloration and staining. These may include:

  • Consuming certain foods and drinks, such as soda, wine, tea, and coffee
  • Tobacco use
  • Fluorosis
  • Aging
  • Certain medications and illnesses
  • Poor dental hygiene and oral care

Professional teeth whitening is an effective way to reduce the appearance of stains and discoloration caused by these and other factors.
