Do you see a dull, stained smile when you look in the mirror? Teeth whitening can dramatically improve your appearance if you have food teeth whiteningand beverage stains or yellowing due to aging or smoking. Our Deerfield Beach, FL, dentist, Dr. Mark Boukzam, explains how teeth whitening treatment brightens your smile.

Teeth whitening removes stains

Brushing your teeth is an excellent way to remove plaque, but it's not very effective in removing stains. Stains develop when dark pigments are deposited in microscopic pores in your tooth enamel. Any food or beverage that contains dark or brightly colored pigments can cause stains, including, tea, coffee, cola, berries, candy, tomato sauce, soy sauce, and sports drinks. Tobacco products also cause unattractive stains on teeth.

Although you may not be able to reach the pigments responsible for stains with your toothbrush, they can be easily removed with whitening treatment in our Deerfield Beach office. During the treatment, hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to your teeth. The gel penetrates the tiny pores in your enamel, breaking apart and removing the pigments. After whitening, your teeth will be considerably whiter.

Professional whitening is ideal for busy people

If your life is busy, you probably don't have weeks or months to devote to whitening your teeth at home. Over-the-counter products often take a long time to produce results because they contain a weaker hydrogen peroxide formulation. The professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel we use in our office lightens your teeth in just about an hour.

Professional whitening is also safer. Before your teeth are whitened, you'll receive a dental examination to ensure that you don't have any undetected dental issues, such as cavities or cracks in your teeth. If you do have a dental issue, it must be treated before you whiten your teeth. You'll also receive a dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. If these substances aren't removed, your teeth may take on a speckled appearance after whitening.

Your safety and comfort is very important during your whitening session. We'll apply a special gel that protects your roots and gums before your treatment begins and also use retractors to hold your cheeks and lips away from your teeth during your session.
