If your teeth are yellow or discoloured, professional teeth whitening is a common cosmetic dentistry procedure that can whiten and brighten your smile. Professional teeth whitening can get rid of the stubborn stains on your teeth and give you a smile that sparkles.
If you would like your smile to be whiter, it can be with just one trip to the dentist. We invite you to call Dr Tom Hogerheyde or Dr Chris Plackner of Kenmore Family Dental today to find out more about professional teeth whitening. Tooth whitening under the care of a dentist is easy and quick, and it can make you look younger and feel more confident about your smile.
Causes of Yellowed Teeth
If you are like many people, you enjoy a cup or two of coffee in the morning and perhaps a glass of red wine at the end of the day. These popular beverages are two of the biggest causes of stained and discoloured teeth. There are foods that can stain your smile as well, including: curries, tomato sauce and berries. Avoiding these foods and drinks can help keep your smile whiter.
There are other contributors to yellowing teeth, such as ageing and some types of medications, that are not so easy to circumvent. But others, such as the use of tobacco products and poor oral hygiene can be avoided.
Professional Teeth Whitening
There are many over-the-counter and do-it-yourself whitening options available, but why put your teeth at risk with unknown treatments? Professional teeth whitening under the care of your dentist is quick, safe and effective. In just one visit to our dental clinic, we can provide treatment to get the brighter and whiter smile you desire. At our Kenmore, QLD clinic, we use the Zoom! Teeth Whitening for consistent results.
The treatment is simple and safe and takes just about an hour. We will provide you with a take-home tray for top-up treatments when you want to refresh your results.
Long-Term Results of Teeth Whitening
Although there is nothing to be done about the ageing process, you can revise your lifestyle habits to promote white teeth. If you continue to eat foods and drink beverages that stain or keep using tobacco products, your teeth will not stay white. This will happen even faster to patients who do not take good care of their teeth at home or adhere to a dental maintenance programme by visiting the dentist every six months. Regular top-up treatments at home will also ensure your teeth whitening results are long-lasting.
