Teeth whitening is a process that lightens the colour of a tooth. Whitening may be accomplished by physical removal of the stain or a chemical reaction to lighten the tooth colour. Tooth stains consist of compounds that have colour or darker shades called chromogens that are accumulated in the tooth (intrinsic) or on the tooth (extrinsic).

Whitening requires expert assessment and careful administration. If it is not done correctly, it could lead to risks like increased sensitivity and mild gingival irritation. We offer expert consultation, administration and follow up support to ensure you have comfortable experience.

Description

Tooth stains consist of compounds that have colour or darker shades called chromogens that are accumulated in the tooth (intrinsic) or on the tooth (extrinsic). Intrinsic staining, sometimes called internal staining, can be attributed to factors such as genetics, age (from enamel wear over time exposing yellower dentin), antibiotics, high levels of fluoride, and developmental disorders and can start before the tooth has erupted. After eruption of the tooth some dental restorations can cause tooth staining. Extrinsic staining, sometimes called external staining, is largely due to environmental factors including smoking, pigments in beverages and foods, antibiotics, and metals such as iron or copper. Coloured compounds from these sources are adsorbed into acquired dental pellicle or directly onto the surface of the tooth causing a stain to appear.
