Yellow or otherwise discoloured teeth can be a source of insecurity for many people, making teeth whitening a popular dental service in cosmetic dentistry. At TCare Dental Centre, we offer teeth whitening services that will brighten your smile in as little as a single visit.
Why Are Your Teeth Yellowed & Stained?
Some of the most common reasons teeth become yellowed and stained are:
- Teeth gradually turn yellow with age
- Thinned enamel can allow the dentin beneath to show through, which appears yellow
- Genetics can play a part in teeth appearing yellow
- Smoking can cause teeth to discolour over time
- Some foods cause teeth to turn yellow, such as tomatoes, berries and curry spices
- Certain drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine can cause teeth to discolour
- Fluorosis (caused by excess fluoride consumption) can cause yellow or brown spots
How to Keep Your Teeth From Discolouration
When it comes to discoloured teeth, trying to avoid discolouration is as important as tooth whitening procedures. Regular brushing and flossing, avoiding consuming anything that causes stains and prioritising visits to your dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning can help prevent your teeth from becoming discoloured.
Teeth whitening can help a wide range of discolouration, whether you’re looking to brighten up your smile or want to remove severe discolouration.
After having your teeth whitened at TCare Dental Centre, we recommend keeping up with positive daily habits to maintain your bright smile. That includes avoiding foods and drinks that can cause staining, brushing and flossing daily, avoiding smoking and visiting us for regular check-ups and teeth cleanings.
DIY Teeth Whitening
In almost any pharmacy or supermarket, you’ll find a variety of whitening products in the oral health care aisle. From strips to toothpaste, plenty of products promise whiter teeth in just a few sessions.
While some of these may work in the short term, the whitening effect is often temporary or, in many cases, the product contains harsh abrasives that will damage your teeth in the long term. We recommend that any of our patients looking for whiter teeth do so in the safety of our practice.
