Teeth Whitening

A great smile can make all the difference. One of the surest and cheapest ways to improve your smile is by whitening your teeth, which is why offer this service to our clients.

Teeth discolouration can be unpleasant even when it’s not a symptom of tooth decay, no one likes looking at stained teeth.  Your lifestyle can go a long way in determining this discolouration

 

Here are some factors that could lead to discolouration

Smoking

tobacco products are especially guilty of causing discolouration. This is due to the chemicals found in the products – nicotine and tar. When nicotine mixes with oxygen, it forms a yellowish substance that will stain the teeth. Tar, on the other hand, is naturally dark, so it'll cause a stain.

Food & Drinks

Many foods usually leave a stain on the teeth. Also, drinks such as coffee, red wine and tea cause stains. Their strong colour pigment sticks to the teeth's outer part and overtime; this can lead to a visible discolouration.

Medications

Some drugs have the side effects of making your teeth darker. Antipsychotics drugs, high blood pressure drugs, antihistamine drugs can cause this. Also, children exposed to drugs like tetracycline during the formation of their teeth may have discolouration as adults.

Traumatic injury

An injury in the mouth will cause your tooth to react with more dentin, which is a darker layer under the enamel. An excess of this will cause discolouration.

Age

Discolouration can occur naturally too as you grow. With consistent brushing, the enamel, which is the outer part of the teeth, starts to thin out, and the dentin, i.e. the darker layer under the enamel, starts showing.

When you notice discolouration and wish to whiten your teeth, the right thing to do is visit the dentist. Don't make the mistake of buying off-the-counter whitening kits. As dentists, we will prescribe the best procedure based on years of experience and certified expertise. Also, not all teeth respond to whitening and overusing whiteners could also damage your enamels and gums; thus, getting a dentist prescription is best for you. When you visit a dentist, the procedure is safer as the gums are first protected before the whitening agent is applied. Our whitening service comes with consultation, treatment, and aftercare, all available at a very affordable price. So what are you waiting for?
