Dental whitening: what is it?

Tooth whitening is a dental treatment that aims to lighten the color of teeth, making them whiter and brighter. It is completely painless.

What does tooth color depend on?

Tooth color is determined by the combination of two dental tissues: enamel and dentin. The transparency and luster of enamel allow the natural shade of dentin to reveal itself. Dentin can vary in color, with shades that can be white, yellow or gray. It is the color of dentin that mainly influences the external appearance of teeth.

  • Coffee, tea, red wine, carbonated drinks, acidic fruit juices;

  • Cigarette smoking;

  • Treatment of antibiotics;

  • Fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries;
