Teeth Whitening is one of the effective ways to get more whiter teeth. Whitening process will not damage the surface or enamel of teeth. The process will lighten the natural colour of teeth to become more brighter and whiter.
Normally teeth whitening is needed when we get older. It is natural fading of teeth colour. Teeth enamel absorbs stains from food items. The stains can be from tea, coffee, juices, red wine etc. and other food items that have strong colours that can affect the colour of teeth. Also teeth can be stained from other habits like smoking, drinking etc.
Some people's teeth will have grey shades, it may be because of other diseases or other problems with their teeth. These can be removed to get whiter healthier teeth. The teeth whitening procedures should be done only with the consultation of a Dentist.

Then he will discuss about the treatment procedures and will give you a report whether you can have teeth whitening. According to the condition of the patient, dentist will start the procedure. This procedure will take only half to one hour. Starts with carefully painting a light-cured protective layer on gums & papilla. After that a bleaching agent carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide is applied to the teeth.
