What is the teeth whitening process?
Teeth Whitening is actually a bleaching process that lightens discolorations of tooth enamel. Diamond Whitening systems uses an effective whitening solution applied with a revolutionary pen applicator with a targetable, soft applicator tip, twice daily until you have reached your desired level of whitening. Using professional-strength whitening gel formulated with hydrogen peroxide is the most widely used and most desirable path to establishing effective dental whitening.
How it removes stains?
Diamond Whitening will remove most stains by generating a gentle action that whitens your teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel (hydrogen peroxide), is broken down, oxygen acts upon the stained organic deposits, which oxidizes them into a white color. This process makes the overall tooth color closer to its natural unstained color. Your tooth structure remains unchanged. Years of clinical tests have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of this type of system. Over 95% of people treated achieve some level of tooth whiteing. Crowns, bridges, bondings, and fillings do not lighten.
