Teeth Whitening 

The first thing people often notice during a conversation is a smile. If dull or discoloured teeth are hurting your confidence, you need not fret. With teeth whitening, you can get a white and bright smile that radiates and promotes vitality and confidence. Therefore, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures as it improves the appearance of the teeth. This procedure is an effective way of lightening the colour of your teeth without affecting the tooth surface.

How teeth lose their whiteness

Tooth enamel is porous. Staining and colouring elements in food and tobacco can penetrate the enamel far below the surface. Certain medications can also affect the enamel’s colour and clarity. Ageing itself can dull your teeth and darken them. Teeth can become yellowed, stained or darkened over time from any one of these sources, causing self-consciousness when smiling.

Causes of Tooth Discolouration

The outer layer of your tooth, also known as enamel is highly susceptible to stains. Some of the habits that lead to discoloration of teeth are:

  • Excessive use of tobacco
  • Drinking liquids such as coffee, cola, red wine and tea
  • Smoking
  • Lack of good oral care
  • Medications like antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure pills can also lead to teeth discolouration

How long it takes to Whiten your Teeth ?

Since only you can decide how white you want your teeth to become the amount that you bleach with custom trays is completely your decision. There is no reliable way to predict how light your teeth will whiten but it has been shown that the longer the whitening material is in contact with your teeth the more effect it will have.

Teeth are naturally darker along the gum-line so these areas may require more time to lighten than the rest of the tooth surfaces and usually remain slightly darker.
