Whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.
The colour of natural teeth is created by the reflection and scattering of light off on the outer layer of the tooth which is called enamel.
There are some common reasons to get teeth stained called extrinsic stains such as:
Intrinsic stains can be caused by exposure to too much fluoride as a child while teeth are developing. Also tetracycline antibiotics can stain a child’s teeth if taken by a mother during the second half of pregnancy or by a child who is 8 years old or younger. Dental trauma my darken teeth.
According to the American Dental Association whitening your teeth can be achieved in two different ways:
1) Using a product that contains bleaching ingredients that change the colour of the tooth by penetrating through the enamel and bleaching your yellowy dentin
2) Abrasive methods that simply remove the superficial stains on the top of your enamel such as the more controversial “whitening” toothpaste” and mouthwash.
When carried out by a dentist or dental hygienist, whitening is a safe, effective and predictable way to boost the appearance of your smile.
All products available online, on the high street and from beauty salons that claim to lighten your teeth, should be avoided.
