How Does Teeth Whitening work?
Your teeth are porous, meaning they are full of little holes. These holes make it easy for certain materials to heavily stain or yellow teeth. Nearly all of these materials are things we might consume as food, such as:
- Tomato-based Sauces.
- Red Wine.
- Fruit Juices.
Smoking can also cause teeth to prematurely turn yellow and become stained. In addition, it’s common for teeth to yellow with age. Teeth whitening can make a big difference in teeth that are stained prematurely by the foods and drinks you consume or teeth that are yellowed with age.
Teeth whitening uses a bleach or whitening agent that penetrates past the hard layer of enamel protecting your teeth down into the area where the discolored molecules are. The agent then breaks the bonds holding the discolored molecules together. This process of breaking the molecules leaves teeth whiter in appearance.
