Teeth whitening is a chemical treatment of the enamel crown where the tooth acquires clearer tones improving its esthetics. The most common treatment in whitening is the use of carbamide or hydrogen peroxide activated by laser light, cold light or plasma. The composition of the enamel itself or habits such as smoking or drinking coffee can limit the effects. Dental hygiene is necessary prior to treatment for an adequate result.
