If your teeth are yellow or discoloured, professional teeth whitening is a common cosmetic dentistry procedure that could 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 Chris Plackner of Kenmore Family Dental today to find out more about professional teeth whitening.
Causes of Yellowed or Stained Teeth
If you are like many people, you might 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 with lifestyle changes.
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 often safer and more effective. In just one visit to our dental clinic, we can provide an in-chair treatment to help promote the brighter and whiter smile many people desire. At our Kenmore, QLD clinic, we use the Pola Teeth Whitening system.
The treatment is simple 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 typically stay white. This will happen even faster for patients who do not take good care of their teeth at home or adhere to a dental maintenance programme by visiting the dentist routinely. Regular top-up treatments at home will also help keep teeth white.
