What Causes Tooth Discolouration?
It is important to understand what may be causing your teeth to become discoloured before you opt to have them whitened.
Many of the causes of tooth discolouration come from what you put in your mouth, be it coffee, tea, red wine or cigarettes. Dark foods such as mulberries, beetroot and cherries can also cause staining.
Outside of consumables, factors such as poor dental hygiene, certain diseases, medication, advancing age, genetics, excessive fluoride exposure and trauma to teeth can also cause teeth discolouration.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that can give teeth a dramatic transformation in as little as one hour.
The procedure at Pitt Street Dental uses Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed whitening treatment to lift your teeth between 8-15 shades in just one in-chair session.
Dentist-Administered vs At-Home Treatments
You can buy teeth whitening powders, pastes, gels and kits in pharmacies, retail stores and online, but are they actually beneficial to your teeth?
There are a number of differences between dentist-administered teeth whitening and at home treatments. The biggest of which is at home treatments can legally only be below 6% hydrogen peroxide. Dentist-administered teeth whitening is the only way to get your teeth back to the white they need to be.
An at-home treatment may appear better due to the lower cost, however, they only work for removing stains and do not actually whiten your teeth. These ‘take home’ treatments are not as effective or as safe at dentist-administered. In some cases, at home treatments have been reported to actually burn gums!
At a dental clinic like Pitt Street Dental, our highly trained dentists will conduct a thorough dental examination to determine your suitability for teeth whitening treatments. Factors such as untreated tooth cavities, receding gums or the presence of ceramic or porcelain crowns or veneers may mean you are unsuitable to have teeth whitening treatment.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Other than whitening your smile, teeth whitening can provide a host of cosmetic and psychological benefits
In social situations, you may find yourself holding back a smile or laugh to avoid showing off stained or discoloured teeth for fear of judgement from others.
