Why whiten your teeth?
There are many reasons why you might want to get your teeth whitened. Everyone is unique; and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people are born with brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we age.
Your teeth can also be stained by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, and blackcurrant. Smoking and the use of other tobacco products can also discolour and stain the teeth.
‘Calculus’ or tartar build-up can also affect the colour of your teeth. Some people may have stains under the enamel surface, which can be caused by certain medications or by tiny cracks in the teeth which absorb stains.
Our Teeth Whitening Service in Leederville
The ‘active ingredient’ that whitens the teeth is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As this ingredient breaks down, oxygen is absorbed into the enamel on the teeth, and the tooth colour lightens.
How long does this take?
There are also some new products which can be applied for up to eight hours at a time. This means you can get amazing results in as little as one week.
At-home Care for Whitened Teeth
You can keep your teeth white by limiting the amount of staining food and beverages you consume. Don’t forget, stopping smoking and using other tobacco products can also help prevent discolouration and staining.
Following these tips will help you take care of your teeth:
- Brush your teeth before sleeping at night and at least one other time during the day, using fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles.
- Limit sugary foods and drinks intake.
- Visit your Leederville dental team regularly, as often as recommended.
