Why do teeth turn yellow and darken?
Your teeth will naturally darken as you get older. This effect can be compounded by certain foods and drinks such as colas, coffee and tea. Some people’s teeth are dark genetically—just like the colour of your eyes. Some people’s teeth are dark because they have internal stains on the tooth, not on the surface. Surface stains come off during a cleaning, but the deeper stains embedded in the enamel are what comes off during in-office teeth whitening treatments. Now it’s never been easier to enjoy a whiter, brighter smile – professional teeth whitening treatments in-office or as take-home kits are available at Dixon Dental in Newmarket. Teeth whitening is a 100% safe method. Take years of your appearance and smile with confidence again!
At-Home Whitening vs In-Office Whitening
When whitening your teeth at our Newmarket dental office, we’re using 35% hydrogen peroxide. When you do it at home, it can be anywhere from 7% to 10%. When you’re doing an in-office treatment, there’s a much better chance that your teeth will whiten due to how concentrated the hydrogen peroxide is, which is a bleaching agent.
