TEETH WHITENING HAMILTON
If you brush and floss regularly but can’t seem to get your smile as bright as you want it, you’re not alone. That’s why our teeth whitening Hamilton treatment is so popular. If you’ve ever thought about having your teeth whitened or doing it yourself at home, here are some things you need to know.
Why Aren’t My Teeth Getting White from Brushing Alone?
- Food stains – Coffee, tea, and red wine are some of the bigger culprits, but soda, citrus fruits, and berries can stain teeth too
- Tobacco – The tar and nicotine found in tobacco smoke can turn them yellow
- Age – As you get older, the enamel of your teeth thins, allowing the yellow color of the dentin inside your teeth to show through
- Injury – If you’ve had an injury that affected one or more teeth, you probably notice that the injured tooth is darker. This is because a tooth’s response to an injury is to lay down more dentin, making the inside layers darker
- Medicines – Various medications can change the color of your teeth. Certain antibiotics, antihistamines, blood pressure medications, and chemotherapies can darken them
What Is the Teeth Whitening Process?
There are several options, including:
- Whitening toothpaste – This type of toothpaste doesn’t use bleach; rather, they have special chemicals that allow them to remove more stains than normal toothpaste. That’s why they are for the most part available over the counter. While they may be more effective than regular toothpaste, they’re not the most effective whitening option.
- In office bleaching – This can usually be done in one dental visit. The dentist applies a gel or shield to protect your gums then applied bleach directly to the teeth. This method gives you the highest concentration of bleach and therefore the best results.
- At home bleaching – Home whitening kits use whiteners that contain peroxide, usually in the form of a gel, that will be placed on a tray and into your mouth. You can also buy whitening strips which have a thin layer of bleach on the surface that you place and wrap around your teeth.
Are There Any Downsides to Whitening?
If you whiten too frequently, you risk damaging your enamel or gums thus always follow directions carefully if you’re using an at-home kit and visit your dentist regularly.
