Teeth whitening allows you to remove or reduce stains on your teeth, giving them a brighter, more attractive appearance. DeCo Dental Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is proud to offer professional teeth whitening in Fenton, and our dental team can use this popular technology to help give you the smile of your dreams.
Our teeth develop stains because the enamel becomes more porous as we age, and gradually becomes darker. Acidic foods and drinks — such as diet soda — make the enamel even more porous, and leave it vulnerable to stains. Tobacco, red wine, coffee and tea are the most likely to leave those ugly yellow stains on our teeth.
How does teeth whitening work? Well, dentists use different types of peroxide solution to whiten our teeth. The solution penetrates the enamel of our teeth, oxidizing the stains and bleaching the layer of tooth beneath the enamel.
Have you considered teeth whitening before, but weren’t sure about the options available? There are two choices: you can whiten your teeth at home — using kits you can purchase from DeCo Dental Family and Cosmetic Dentistry — or you can receive professional whitening in our conveniently-located Fenton dental practice.
