Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can significantly improve how your teeth look.
The most common reasons for teeth to get yellow or stained are aging, tobacco, tea and coffee. All of these can stain the surface of the teeth. It is also possible to have stains that are inside the tooth. These are called intrinsic stains. For example, intrinsic stains can be caused by exposure to too much fluoride as a child while teeth are developing.
The teeth can be restored to their natural color by tooth whitening. This can be done at our clinic in a 20 minute procedure, or it can be done at home. The technique produces an improvement in the brightness of the teeth with only minimal treatment.
Whitening of teeth is a tradition that has been passed over from generations to generations, the only difference being the method used. With time and rough use, one’s teeth are subjected to the accumulation of stains and even discolouration from white to various shades of yellow. Thus, dental whitening is used to improve how one’s teeth look.
Enamel is the outer layer on every tooth. The environment and other factors end up creating thin layers of pellicle on the enamel which disrupts the whiteness of the teeth. These thin layers are basically stains that hinder how perfect a person’s teeth look. The enamel also has thin pores on its surface that hold stains.
The various factors that cause the yellowing of teeth are as follows:
1. Drinking liquids that are dark – tea, coffee, alcohol, wine, soda
2. Using tobacco products
3. Improper brushing routine and lack of proper oral care
