Obtaining whiter teeth has become one of the most common requests at the dental practice. The colour of a tooth in good condition is somewhere between white and yellowish, and teeth with thicker enamel are less translucent and more luminous.
The colour of the enamel is also defined to a large extent by the enamel surface, because if the tooth is smooth and even it will have a brighter appearance, while if it is uneven, it will acquire a more matte, dimmer tone since the light reflected loses intensity when it hits the surface.
Over time, teeth can change colour due to enamel wear, which makes the dentin more visible, acquiring an orangey tone as it ages.
Whitening of tooth enamel can be done at the clinic through several specific procedures, amongst which are those based on laser technology, microabrasion, or the application of a chemical agent on the surface of the tooth. To remove stains, people often employ whitening toothpastes for use at home. These contain active ingredients such as papain, phosphates or silica, but whose efficacy is inferior to that of treatments at dental clinic.
VITIS® whitening toothpaste, containing hydroxyapatite nanoparticles, represents an advance in home whitening products because it recovers natural whiteness - the hydroxyapatite nanoparticles act by filling in the irregular surfaces of the tooth enamel - and provides a smoother, more uniform surface, thereby returning teeth their natural white gloss.
In addition, these particles prevent dental hypersensitivity, as they act by sealing exposed dentinal tubules. Use after in-office tooth whitening helps keep teeth whiter for longer.
The new VITIS® whitening toothpaste has an exclusive formula that provides five actions:
Removes stains from the surface of the tooth enamel and prevents them from forming again.
Triple phosphate system
Acts by sequestering metal ions, like calcium, which are essential for the bacterial plaque (biofilm) to crystallize and form calculus, or tartar. The triple combination provides a more effective anti-tartar action.
Polishes and smooths tooth enamel without damaging it, and provides a smoother, shinier surface. In addition, it protects tooth enamel, as it has a minimally abrasive effect.
Sodium monofluorophosphate (1.10%, 1,450 ppm fluoride ion)
Remineralises the enamel and prevents the onset of decay.
5. Repairing and whitening
Hydroxyapatite nanoparticles (0.45%)
Naturally-occurring in teeth; integrate into the tooth enamel:
* Fill the irregular surfaces of the tooth.
* Repair tooth enamel, providing a smoother, brighter surface.
* Seal exposed dentinal tubules, by forming a protective layer that helps prevent and treat dental hypersensitivity.
