Over the years organic minerals and compounds from foodstuffs, liquids and in some cases tobacco settle into the millions of pores located on the surface of the teeth enamel, as these compounds build up discolouration of the tooth enamel occurs.
There are two types of staining:
Extrinsic staining appears on the tooth surface due to exposure to different dark drinks and certain foodstuffs as well as tobacco. Some of these stains can be removed by brushing and regular dental attention. The more stubborn stains though, need a more concerted effort such as teeth whitening.
Intrinsic stains are stains that have formed inside the teeth, the main causes of these stains are antibiotic use such as tetracycline, aging, trauma to the teeth and in some cases excessive ingestion of fluoride.
While these stains were initially thought to be immovable the vast improvement in teeth whitening technology has led to experts now believing that even these stains can be improved!
The state of the art LED blue ray whitening light we use activates a specialist non peroxide gel we use called p3, the gel breaks down into water and oxygen molecules which then penetrate the pores in the tooth enamel and breaks down the stains into such small particles that more and more natural light can pass through leading to whiter and whiter teeth.
