If you’re feeling insecure about the look of your teeth due to discolouration and stains, teeth whitening can help! Your teeth get noticed every day when you meet and greet people, so they can leave a lasting impression if they’re looking dull. Thankfully, there are a variety of different treatments that you can use that will lift stains and make them look whiter, brighter and better than ever.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Since all of our teeth contain tiny pores just like our skin, they are susceptible to discolouration whenever staining liquids or food – such as wine or coffee – is consumed. All teeth whitening methods use an active ingredient that can penetrate into the pores of your teeth to lift and remove those deep stains that get left behind.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Teeth whitening is safe, and as long as you follow the correct instructions provided, it won’t cause any damage to your teeth. During the whitening process, the active ingredients open up the pores temporarily, allowing the stains to be pushed out. Dehydration that occurs afterward can cause some sensitivity, but this will fade shortly after treatment.
Which Method of Teeth Whitening Should I Use?
There is a myriad of teeth whitening products available today, including at-home kits that can be very effective. And although whitening strips can be very effective at lifting stains, they aren’t always successful at targeting each tooth and area. For those with any misaligned teeth, some teeth can often get left out during the process since strips can’t contour too well to any teeth that aren’t perfectly straight.
That’s why whitening treatments offered by your dentist can provide the best results for your teeth. With custom-fitted trays designed to contour to your individual teeth, every inch and angle can receive a thorough whitening treatment, providing a flawless result that you’ll feel proud to show off.
