How professional teeth whitening works
Though tooth enamel looks smooth, under magnification you would see that it has tiny pits, grooves, and pores. Pigments from tobacco and dark colored foods and beverages become lodged in these contours. Brushing scrapes away some surface stains, but it cannot remove embedded pigments.
Teeth bleaching penetrate enamel with an oxidizing agent that breaks up stains and lifts them to the surface. It even lightens the yellowish dentin layer beneath enamel.
At a young age our teeth are healthy white. But overtime the enamel coating the tooth is so slowly worn down. Causing our teeth to become stained and yellow, which is why teeth whitening is become increasingly popular today. There are a few methods for whitening. They include at home and in office.
