 “Add white to your wardrobe with our teeth whitening”

  May be you have always wanted a beautiful smile or your teeth have yellowed over time or you are not happy with the staining that results from drinking coffee, tea or cola. Whatever your reason for wanting whiter teeth, you are not alone. Just like we all have different hair and skin colour, people also have different tooth colour. Some teeth are more yellow than others, while others yellow with aging. Your natural tooth colour can also be affected by many factors. Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy.

  1. Why did my teeth change colour?

Over time, your teeth can go from white to not so bright for a number of reasons:-

  • Loss of enamel with age
  • Certain food and drinks like cola, coffee, tea, red wine
  • Dental plaque / calculus / tartar
  • Tobacco / smoking / betel chewing
  • Tooth decay
  • Trauma / injury to tooth

 

  1. What is tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. A non invasive method of lightening dark or discoloured teeth.

 

  1. How does teeth whitening work?

Whitening is actually a pretty simple process. Whitening products contain one of the two bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces which makes the colour less concentrated and your teeth brighter.

 

  1. What are my whitening options?

Talk to your dentist to figure if you are a candidate. There are certain ways to put the shine back in your smile:-

  • Whitening strips
  • Whitening gels
  • Whitening tooth pastes
  • Whitening pens

But the most effective, sure and safe way is the professional Tooth Whitening treatment by your Cosmetic Dentist.

In – office bleaching:-

The procedure usually requires only one office visit. The dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your gums. Bleaching gel is then applied to the teeth. A special light or laser might be used to enhance the action of the whitening agent. Not all offices offer this type of system so speak with your dentist and see if this is an option. The session lasts 10 to 15 minutes. Two or three of these sessions may be required varying from case to case.

  1. Does whitening work on all teeth?

No, this is why it’s important to talk to your dentist before deciding to whiten your teeth, as whitening may not correct all types of stains. For example, yellow teeth will probably bleach well, brown teeth may not respond as well and teeth with gray tones may not bleach at all. Whitening will only work on natural enamel and will not have any effect on caps (crowns), veneers or fillings. It also won’t be effective if your tooth discolouration is internal, this is the result of the staining associated with medications or trauma.

 

  1. Is tooth whitening safe?

Yes ! It is totally safe and effective. There are some myths regarding tooth whitening which need to be corrected :-

  • It can cause damage to enamel but the fact is enamel is the hardest tissue. It does not cause any damage to it.
  • It can cause tooth sensitivity but the fact is it is a safe procedure and does not cause any tooth sensitivity.
  • You can whiten your teeth with baking soda but the fact is this simply doesn’t work.
