Everyone is unique. And just as our hair and skin colour, our teeth’s colour also vary.
Very few people are born with white teeth and besides, our teeth can also become more discoloured as we age.
Your teeth can also be discoloured by food and beverages such as tea, coffee, wine, and blackcurrant.
Smoking and use of other tobacco products can also contribute to discolouration and staining of the teeth.
If you have stained, discoloured, cracked, broken, or misshapen teeth, procedures like dental veneers and tooth whitening can improve your smile and overall appearance. Check out how teeth whitening can help!
Our Tooth Whitening Service in Canley Heights
Professional bleaching is the most commonly performed teeth whitening method. Our dental team in Canley Heights will be able to tell you if you are qualified for the procedure.
First, your Canley Heights dentist will put a rubber shield or a gel on your gums for protection. Next, the whitening product will be applied to the teeth using a tray that fits into your mouth like a mouthguard.
The ‘active ingredient’ that whitens the teeth is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.
As this ‘active ingredient’ breaks down, oxygen is absorbed into the tooth surface, and the tooth shade lightens.
At-home Care for Whitened Teeth
You can maintain the whiteness of your teeth by limiting the intake of staining food and beverages.
Do not forget, smoking cessation can also help prevent discolouration.
Following these tips will help you take care of your teeth:
- Brush your teeth before going to bed at night and at least one other time during the day. Use fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles.
- Limit your sugary foods and drinks intake.
- Visit your Canley Heights dentist regularly, as often as recommended.
