So, when they feel that their teeth lack some brightness or lost their sparkle, they try everything to get their bright smiles back. Teeth whitening has now become the most demanding method to get pearly white teeth.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Using toothpaste or mouthwash for teeth whitening is a common and old practice. But, when you feel that your teeth have lost their sparkle and white color, you immediately want to get back your bright teeth. For this purpose, dental clinics offer teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental care procedure to get back the white color of your teeth without any loss to your teeth surface. Though you cannot change your teeth color completely you can lighten it as much as possible.
Why Does the Teeth Color Change?
There are a few people who have ideal white teeth when they grow older. But mostly as we age our enamel starts losing its sparkle causing yellow teeth. Everyone has different skin, hair, and teeth too so, everyone responds differently to the teeth whitening process. Some go well with it whereas some have to try serious discoloration methods to get their desired teeth.
The reasons that affect the color of the teeth include:
- Intake of major staining food items such as coffee, tea, and red wine.

Newbury Dental Group provides information on two main types of teeth whitening to its patients. The one is in-office treatment whereas the other can be done at home. But since the in-office treatment produces instant results so, people find it the ideal way of teeth whitening.
At Newbury Dental Group, we offer another treatment in our offices and that is whitening trays. These customized whitening trays fit around the teeth securely and do not allow the solution to leak into the mouth. This is the best teeth whitening treatment as you can use the tray at any time. You just have to use them for a couple of hours every night for about a week or so, and when you feel that your teeth have become white you can stop using it.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
The whitening solution contains Hydrogen Peroxide that enters through the enamel to start oxidation. Due to this process, the molecules reflect less or no light to seem colorless which results in lightening the teeth color. This makes your teeth white again. Teeth whitening just follow this simple procedure which you can repeat frequently.
To keep your teeth white always, you will have to reduce the intake of staining culprits such as tea, coffee, red wine, and smoking. Brush your teeth before going to bed at night and take care of your teeth as your dentist recommends.
