How does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth Whitening in Bloomington, MN, brightens discolored or dull teeth. The treatment restores natural tooth color and can even whiten further than the natural color.

This process involves a potent bleaching agent, such as carbamide peroxide or concentrated hydrogen peroxide. The bleaching agent can be made faster with heat or light. 

The whitener is applied to the surface of your teeth and left to sit. The whitener penetrates the tooth enamel and dentin layers and triggers a molecular chemical reaction that dissolves stain-causing molecules. Even after rinsing, the whitener continues to dissolve stains for 24 hours.
