What Is The Process For Teeth Whitening? Yellow color or staining on teeth may cause distress among several individuals. In this day and age, we can not ignore the beaming effects of white pearly teeth. Teeth whitening is a process of removing extrinsic and intrinsic stains from the teeth. Here we will explain the difference between bleaching and teeth whitening. Teeth whitening can be achieved in two ways, either by chemical and non-chemical (or physical) methods. Chemical methods include bleaching the teeth with peroxide and non-chemical includes removing the stains from the surface of the teeth by scaling, polishing, or using abrasive kinds of toothpaste and charcoal. Teeth Staining Teeth whitening can be done to remove stains or discoloration that are extrinsic (on the teeth surface) and intrinsic (inside the teeth). The extrinsic stains mostly occur due to factors such as poor oral hygiene, a diet rich in colors, various tobacco products, or red wine. The intrinsic stains could be caused by factors such as an internal trauma, tetracycline use, demineralization of enamel, hypo-mineralization of enamel, or fluorosis. Genetics can also play a vital role in determining the color of the teeth.
