Teeth whitening treatment and procedures are very common in today’s society. In the same way different people have different hair and skin colour, everyone also has different tooth colour. Some teeth are more yellow than others, while others have a soft grey hue to them.
Your natural tooth colour can be affected by many different things, such as drinking tea or coffee for years, but brightening your smile is easier than ever. If you’re interested in making your teeth whiter then you’re not alone. With a selection of different options available, from special toothpaste to whitening strips, teeth whitening treatments are more common than ever.
Why teeth change colour
Everyone’s teeth will gradually change colour over time, in the same way we all eventually get wrinkles. And just like how prolonged sun exposure can cause premature aging, there are factors which cause your teeth to change colour at a faster pace.
The biggest factor in tooth staining is smoking. Tobacco, whether smoked or chewed, is a sure-fire way to turn your teeth a nasty yellow/brown, not to mention the disastrous consequences for your health.
Tea and coffee are also guilty of staining tooth enamel, along with other drinks such as cola or red wine. Pigmented food such as blueberries or cherries should be avoided as a regular meal, and of course not taking care of your teeth is also a huge factor. Unhealthy teeth may also turn brown, grey or black due to decay underneath or a ‘leaky’ amalgam (silver) filling.
Why it can change your life
Nothing boosts a person’s confidence more than a beautiful smile. The more we smile, the happier we are. Having beautiful white teeth gives a person a certain type of self-esteem that can only come with a great smile. Clients even report feeling younger after treatment!
Many people undergo teeth whitening treatment for a certain occasion, such as a wedding or family portrait. A new, bright smile not only makes a great first impression, but the confidence boost that comes along with it certainly helps in a job interview!
How to prevent discolouration after treatment
If you come to SDAI for teeth whitening treatment, then afterwards you’re going to want to keep those pearly whites for as long as possible. The same things that caused your teeth to change colour over the years are still going to affect them after treatment. Food and drink which stain teeth, such as tea and coffee, should be taken in moderation. Practical solutions also work, such as drinking through a straw which keeps the food colouring and dyes away from your teeth. And of course, if you smoke, quit!
Teeth whitening options we offer at SDAI
Here at Sydney Dental Aesthetics and Implants, we provide a range of proven methods and treatments when it comes to teeth whitening.
Smartbleach® Laser Teeth Whitening
At SDAI, we use the Smartbleach® teeth whitening system. Combined with a KTP Laser, we promise you, you will have long lasting whiter teeth within around an hour.
This highly effective teeth whitening treatment uses a unique and patented process that combines pure green light from the KTP Laser, and a specially formulated non-acidic red whitening gel. This unique combination is highly effective, yet gentle on tooth enamel. The dentist treats each tooth individually until optimal results are achieved. Laser – activated fluoride treatment is then placed on all the whitened teeth to stabilise the results.
Smartbleach® Laser teeth whitening is currently the gold standard in teeth whitening and is unlike any other system, in fact it is the only true “Laser” Whitening. Comparisons with other methods at two Universities in Europe have shown Smartbleach® to give by far the best results.
Take Home Kits
If coming in for treatment isn’t your thing, or you simply don’t have the time, then try our home kits. These kits allow you to get whiter teeth in the comfort of your home, at a time which is convenient for you. We provide the best take home kits available with the added benefit of oversight by a professional to maximize results.
