Even people who are the most conscious about their oral health can develop discolouration and staining on their teeth. Discolouration tends to come with age, but it can also be caused by smoking and generally poor oral hygiene.
At Byfleet Dental, we use the Pola Day and Pola Night whitening systems to prevent staining from beverages such as red wine, tea and coffee.
Here is how teeth whitening works:
Home teeth whitening kits are also available to lighten the teeth more gradually. In this case, the trays with bleaching agent can be worn overnight. With all whitening treatment, individual results will vary and are dependant on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.
There are several factors that can cause teeth to become discoloured, including ageing, consumption of certain foods and drinks (such as coffee, tea, and red wine), smoking, and poor oral hygiene. While these are the most common factors, there are many lesser-known causes of tooth discolouration. For example, certain medications may cause the teeth to become darker in colour. Antihistamines, antipsychotics, and high blood pressure medications may all lead to tooth discolouration due to chemicals that become deposited within the enamel of the teeth over time. Beyond these medications, cancer treatments such as radiation therapy may also contribute to changes in tooth colouration.
Professional bleaching involves the use of special whitening products that contain higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The dentist will apply these products to your teeth and activate them with a special light or laser for maximum whitening effect. This method can produce dramatic results in a single visit, but you may require multiple visits to achieve your desired level of whitening.
Yes, teeth whitening is a safe procedure when done under the supervision of a dental professional. However, if you choose to use at-home whitening kits, it is important to follow the instructions carefully to avoid damaging your teeth or gums.
The results of teeth whitening can vary depending on the individual and the type of treatment used. Generally, the effect of teeth whitening lasts between 6 months to 2 years.
Teeth whitening is generally safe for most people, but it is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals with sensitive teeth or gums, or those with severe tooth decay or gum disease.
Some people may experience temporary side effects such as tooth sensitivity or gum irritation after undergoing teeth whitening. However, these side effects usually subside within a few days.
While there are several natural remedies that claim to whiten teeth, such as baking soda or apple cider vinegar, there is no scientific evidence to support their effectiveness. It is always best to consult with a dental professional before trying any home remedies.
To maintain your teeth whitening results, it is important to practice good oral hygiene, avoid consuming staining foods and drinks, and visit your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
Yes, you can. At-home teeth whitening is a convenient and cost-effective way to get rid of stains, yellowing and discolouration, as well as to give your smile a brighter look. Though the results may take longer than professional treatments such as in-office bleaching, the effects are still noticeable. The process starts with a consultation where your dentist will assess your oral situation and discuss possible solutions for you. To ensure maximum safety, they will then suggest which products would be suitable for your case.
