What causes discolouration?
Discoloured teeth can affect your entire smile and appearance. Discolouration may result from a variety of factors, including;
- Consumption of coffee,
- Tea or red wine,
- Smoking regularly
- Eating highly coloured foods (such as darkly coloured berries or food with dark dyes),
- Part of the ageing process (stains tend to accumulate as we get older) Certain medications and dental hygiene,
- Tooth decay,
- Genetic Factors that occurred as the patients teeth were developing (for example, the use of certain types of antibiotics)
Exactly as it sounds, this procedure is meant to help whiten the colour of your teeth.
This can refresh your entire appearance with a simple, non-invasive treatment.
It’s often ideal to first understand what is causing your discolouration before beginning whitening treatment; if you eliminate certain factors like tooth decay or medication use, then you and your dentist will have a better idea of what will work for you.
How long do the effects of whitening treatment last?
