As we age, our teeth lose their luster due to the thinning of enamel and the resulting exposure of yellow dentin that lies underneath. Fortunately, you can visit our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Stephen T. Parker, to rejuvenate your smile with professional teeth whitening. Here at Parker Dentistry in Hollywood, FL, we offer two different methods of whitening to help patients look and feel their best—read on to learn more!
What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?
Here at our Hollywood office, we utilize Zoom Whitening as well as Nite White and Day White systems to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals. The Zoom in-office method allows you to sit back and relax, while a chair-side lamp safely and effectively accelerates the bleaching process without changing the structure of the tooth. Nite White and Day White Systems combine custom-molded trays and take-home formulas designed to suit your specific needs and preferences.
Which Types of Stains are Removed?
On a daily basis, our teeth pick up stains from dark-colored liquids, foods, tobacco, and poor oral hygiene habits. Depending on the level of severity, many of these won't go away with brushing and flossing, and can only benefit from professional teeth whitening treatment. These stains include:
Extrinsic stains, which are located on the outer surface of the enamel and turn the teeth yellow.
Intrinsic stains, which are located deep in the inner layer of the tooth and can only be counteracted by a cosmetic dentist.
