YOUR TEETH HAVE
PORES JUST LIKE
YOUR SKIN OR A SPONGE…
THEY ABSORB

FACT: Your teeth have pores just like your skin or a sponge. Anything you put in your mouth that has colour will absorb into these pores. Wine, coffee, berries and smoking are extremely active in staining teeth. Over time the natural colour of your teeth becomes darker due to these stains. These stains will never go away unless you actively remove them.

Professional teeth whitening is safe

FACT: Teeth whitening does not damage your teeth if done correctly at a dentist but just like aggressive brushing, abuse of any kind can be damaging. Bleaching and UV whitening open pores and lift stains and it is important to note that you should not whiten your teeth excessively, as this can literally strip the teeth of their opaque nature and cause a more translucent look to your smile. Additionally, when used incorrectly, home kits can lead to burned or even temporarily bleached gums.
