Frequently asked questions
How does it work?
Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discolored tooth enamel. It works by opening the pores of your teeth in order to draw out staining. Once the pores of your teeth are opened, the active ingredient works to oxidize stains and neutralize them. Over 95% of people treated achieve some level of teeth whitening.
What chemical whitens my teeth?
We use a non-abrasive chemical called carbamide peroxide. To achieve maximum results quickly, we use a concentration of 44% carbamide peroxide. This keeps your tooth structure intact, while also considering possible sensitivity issues.
What cause tooth discoloration?
The consumption of staining foods and drinks leads to tooth discoloration. Smoking is also a huge factor contributing to teeth staining as well. Foods you should avoid include, but are not limited to; coffee, soda, tea, fruits and fruit juices, and red sauces.
