Teeth Whitening is an effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth’s surface. In some cases it can make a complete colour change while in other cases we can achieve a result a few shades whiter. There are a number of reasons why you might get your teeth whitened. Everyone is different; and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people have brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we get older.
Your teeth can also be stained on the surface by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine and blackcurrant. Smoking will also stain teeth. ‘Calculus’ or tartar also affects the colour of your teeth. Some people may have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains.
If you are considering a few Dental Crowns or Veneers to restore the appearance of your Smile line you may also consider Teeth Whitening before choosing your Crown/ Veneer colour to create an overall Brighter/ Whiter Smile line.
Researches and microscopic studies; showed no harm in the use of a 10 percent whitening solution. There is not a single study to show that teeth have structural changes and permanent damage to teeth due to whitening.
