Teeth Whitening Wilmington, DE
Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
Why do Teeth Stain?
Over time, it’s natural for our teeth to dull a bit as we get older. After all, tooth enamel is porous, which means that it absorbs all the colors found in dark foods and drinks such as red wine, coffee and tea, berries, and tomato sauce. These foods and drinks can contribute to a yellow or stained smile. While brushing and flossing can certainly prevent these stains from forming in the first place, once they are there, teeth whitening can help to break up these stain molecules in ways that your whitening toothpaste can’t.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

We have received the proper training to be able to safely administer whitening treatment to our patients. So instead of trying those DIY whitening tips, why not stick to a whitening system you know you can trust?
What is the Process of Teeth Whitening?
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we utilize a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we'll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the gel for a short period of time over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 - 8 shades!
