There are several teeth whitening methods and products, including whitening toothpaste, over-the-counter whitening gels, rinses, strips, trays, and whitening products from a dentist.
Teeth whitening is good for people who have healthy, unrestored teeth and gums.
Individuals with yellow tones to their teeth respond best. But this cosmetic procedure is not for everyone.
Causes of Teeth Discolouration
Extrinsic discolouration is when foods, beverages, or smoking habits stain your teeth. Coffee, tea, red wine, foods with dyes, and tobacco products can contribute to this type of discolouration. These stains affect the outer surfaces of your teeth.
Extrinsic discolouration may be treated with whitening toothpaste that targets the teeth’s outside stains.
Intrinsic discolouration is from within the tooth. You may have intrinsic discolouration because of medication use, childhood illness, infection, tooth trauma, or aging.
Intrinsic discolouration may need to be professionally bleached to get the same level, or better, of teeth whiteness.
Teeth Whitening Procedure
If you want to have your tooth whitened, you’ll need to make several visits to the dental surgery over a couple of months.
During an in-chair whitening procedure, a bleaching product is painted to your teeth, and then a light or laser is shone on them to activate the whitening. In-chair whitening takes about an hour.
Your Miranda dentist will take impressions of your teeth to make a mould and tell you how to use it with the bleaching gel.
Then, using your mouthguard at home, regularly apply the gel for a specific period of time for over 2 to 4 weeks.
Some whitening gels can be left on the teeth for up to 8 hours each time, which shortens the treatment period to 1 week.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Boosts your self-confidence
A smile with bright, sparkly teeth is hard to miss! Whiter teeth is an indication that you take care of yourself and care about your appearance.
Enhances your appearance
After the proper whitening procedure, you’ll instantly notice the difference without having to ‘filter’ and/or edit your photos. Teeth whitening will help combat stains from your everyday food and drink.
Minimises the look of wrinkles
If you’re self-conscious about wrinkles, teeth whitening may be a great option for you! Instead of focusing on wrinkles, people are more likely to focus on your bright white smile. This will draw attention away from the appearance of surrounding wrinkles, acne scars, and frown lines.
Doesn’t break the bank
Teeth whitening doesn’t cost as much as plastic surgery! A touch-up kit after an in-office treatment will be enough to prolong the effect of your teeth whitening. The combination of teeth whitening plus an at-home enhancer is a small price tag that produces big results.
