Perhaps you’ve forever fancied a white smile or your teeth have yellowed. Maybe you’re not content with the discolouration that occurs from drinking coffee, tea or fizzy beverages. The same way we all have different hair and skin colour; we also have different coloured teeth.

Certain teeth are more yellow than others, whereas others yellow through maturing. Reasons for wanting whiter teeth vary from boosting confidence & self-esteem, getting a younger appearance, a special event or to make a positive first impression. Whatever the reason for wanting whiter teeth, you’re most certainly not alone.

The first step should always be an appropriate dental examination — with X-ray pictures — to decide the cause of the discolouration.

This is the best way to learn about suitable whitening options, with the only person who knows you: your dentist.

While the benefits teeth whitening are solely cosmetic, It’s a very safe procedure that will not harm your teeth. There are three major ways of turning ‘off white’ teeth into brilliant white teeth. These are Enlighten, the world’s best whitening system, in-surgery blast of laser teeth whitening or just controlled home teeth whitening. These are easy and effective ways of bringing out natural whiteness in the teeth. The good news is that there is virtually no damage to your teeth and you have a perfect white smile.

Research has found that low amounts of peroxide, from a reliable foundation, are harmless if used as instructed after a suitable dental examination. However, tooth sensitivity is a common side effect of whitening. If you already have sensitive teeth, there are safeguards you can take before starting the lightening procedure.

Maintain your regular oral hygiene routine at home and your professional clean-ups at the dentist’s. Avoid tobacco and beverages that stain such as red wine, tea and coffee. Your dentist can advise you about upkeep practices that best serve your individual needs.
