Northridge, CA (PRWEB) November 10, 2014
Teeth consist of several different layers. The inner chambers are filled with pulp, which includes the nerve, blood vessels and other soft tissues. The dentin layer encloses and protects the pulp, and the outer layer is enamel, which is the hardest substance in the human body. Various substances, including tobacco, food and coffee and other beverages, accumulate in the form of a film called a pellicle. Certain substances in food and drinks, or chromogens, penetrate the structure of the tooth and, over time, they oxidize.
The enamel layer of teeth is porous, and the crystals that form this layer, can be penetrated by the chromogens in the pellicle. These stains work their way into the porous enamel and can even stain the deeper dentin layer. While these stains are essentially harmless, they can be unsightly. Dr. Arami offers teeth whitening treatments that penetrate into the deeper layers of the tooth to break up the stains they contain. Both in-office and take-home whiteners can be used to eliminate stains from:
- Sodas and soft drinks
- Coffee and tea
- Energy drinks and juices
- Artificial dyes
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
Not all patients are candidates for tooth whitening treatments, and some may benefit from additional services, such as dental bonding, porcelain veneers, dental bridges and dental implants.
