Understanding Tooth Stains

The outer-most layer of your tooth, the enamel, is what becomes stained or discolored and adversely, whitened during teeth whitening treatment. The tooth's enamel is actually quite porous when looked at up close and thinking about it this way makes it easier to understand how teeth can become stained.

Coffee, tea, colas, wine, certain fruits and vegetables, smoking or chewing tobacco and inadequate brushing and flossing can all cause the tooth's enamel to stain. Tiny microscopic particles lodge themselves into the porous enamel layer of your teeth which causes the overall appearance of the tooth to become discolored. Southeast Dental Group offers professional-grade whitening solutions that eliminate stains and discoloration by blasting out the particles within the porous enamel layer and effectively bleaching the enamel. What is left behind is a beautiful whiter enamel layer.

Teeth Whitening

Looking for Teeth Whitening in Maywood? Yearning for a bright youthful smile?

Southeast Dental Group offers a full range of cosmetic dentistry including professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is the #1 requested and performed cosmetic dental procedure. Teeth whitening (sometimes called teeth bleaching) is a procedure that brightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration.

Throughout the day, a thin coating of bio-film collect on teeth. The bio-film can attract stains that can be trapped in the pores of tooth's enamel.

Teeth whitening by a dental professional is key as cavities need to be treated before teeth are whitened. Cavities are problematic because whitening solution can penetrate the cavity allowing decay to reach inner areas of a tooth. People with good dental health may also use a kit to whiten teeth at home. However, in a single office visit, teeth whitening performed by a dental professional will produce brighter results that are more consistent in color across all teeth.

Single Visit Whitening

  1. Preparation - We start the whitening process by covering your lips and gums leaving only your teeth exposed. At this time, we can usually estimate how white your new smile will be by matching your teeth with a whitening shade and estimate approximately up to 8 shades whiter from here.
  2. Application - Next a high-strength whitening gel is applied to the surfaces of your teeth. This special gel is specifically designed to work with the whitening light.
  3. Whitening - The whitening light is placed directly in front of your teeth to maximize exposure to the gel. The special light activates the gel which gently penetrates the outer-most (enamel) layer of your teeth; breaking up stains and discoloration during the process.
  4. Smile - Smile with confidence as you leave the office with a brighter, whiter smile!
