Teeth whitening is an increasingly popular practice. If you wish to brighten your smile, discuss it with your dentist and hygienist during your next visit. They will do a thorough examination to ensure you have no cavities or defective dental fillings and that your overall oral condition allows for whitening treatment.
Teeth discolouration is caused by several factors, including:
- Plaque and tartar accumulation
- Coffee, tea, red wine and tomato sauce consumption
- Cigarette smoking
- The use of some medications
- Natural ageing of the teeth
Note that some people respond better to whitening treatments than others. Those with yellowish teeth usually respond better than those with brownish teeth.
Feel free to discuss teeth whitening with us during your next visit.
