How does tooth whitening work?
When a whitening product is applied to the tooth, it breaks down into water and oxygen ions. The oxygen ions enter the enamel and attack the long stain molecules to effectively break them down to be short and colourless. These short and colourless molecules are then naturally removed from the tooth by saliva. The intensity of whitening is related to the number of ions available and the length of time they are on the tooth.
We currently use a take home whitening system called Pola. This system involves you wearing trays containing whitening gel at home daily/nightly until you achieve the desired results.
Ask your dentist about whitening and what results you could achieve at your next appointment or call 0121 3609898 to book a consultation.
