You have teeth whitening options in Boise, ID
Most people would like to have brilliantly white, shiny teeth. Yet every smile, lifestyle, schedule, and budgets are different, Dr. Enright understands. She and her team at Horizon Dental Group – Dr. Sarah Enright & Associates in Boise, ID provide personalized teeth whitening, with solutions to fit virtually every smile.
How teeth whitening works
Enamel looks smooth and impervious, but it is covered with microscopic channels that extend into the dentin layer. Pigment molecules from tobacco and dark colored beverages and foods become embedded in these tubules. While brushing is vitally important to oral health, toothbrush bristles are too big to dislodge these stains. Plus, as we age, enamel thins allowing the yellowish dentin to show through, and teeth may darken internally from certain medications or trauma.
With professional whitening, teeth are treated with a prescription-strength peroxide compound. The chemical reaction loosens and lifts pigments, without harming the tooth structure or nerve of the tooth. As the formulation cleans tubules, it penetrates and bleaches underlying dentin, for a level of brightness you cannot achieve with over the counter tooth whitening products.
