Is teeth whitening safe for my teeth?
Yes, it’s perfectly safe. People think that teeth whitening takes off a layer away from their teeth which is not true. The mechanism of teeth whitening is such that the chemical agent we use neutralises the staining agents which have incorporated into the body of teeth. It’s not a mechanical process of abrading the surface to teeth.
All forms of whitening employ the same basic chemical process, whether they’re a home whitening kit or teeth whitening that’s done by a dentist.
At Carrara Dental Practice we offer both these techniques. Our state of the art latest in-office whitening is an internationally acclaimed system called “Zoom” (Zoom Bright White System).
