For a variety of reasons, including our diets and age, the color of our teeth can change over the years. This discoloring can occur because the enamel, the outer protective layer of the teeth, has worn down. This wear allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through. This is what can give our teeth a yellowish tint. In order to help turn back the hands of time, NK Family Dentistry, your Waltham cosmetic dentists use teeth whitening to help restore your teeth to a shiny white color through the use of dental bleach.
How is it done?
Our Waltham office can provide you with take-home whitening kits. These whitening kits are purchased from your Waltham dentist for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually, the trays are worn for a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks, depending on the product.
