What stains teeth in the first place?

Teeth whiteningThere can be several reasons as to why your teeth are becoming stained or discoloured, but firstly you must realise that not all teeth are naturally brilliantly white and there are several factors why this is. If you think about, we all have different colour skin and hair tones, the same goes for teeth. There is also the age factor to consider, because teeth actually become darker with age!
However, there are two main types of staining, external and internal;
Internal staining can be caused through prescription medicines such as antibiotics taken while the teeth are developing, while a crack no matter how small can also produce the appearance of staining. External staining is more obvious, dark coloured food and drinks, smoking and tartar can all produce a darkening effect on the surface of the teeth, which is not a good look.

What is the treatment going to be like?

Well, there are two types of treatments; Enlighten whitening and home bleaching, you can discuss these options with your dentist.
Enlighten whitening, this is a procedure that is firstly done at home for two weeks and then a short procedure that is completed in surgery for 45 minutes. It involves a whitening agent being applied into the whitening trays and placed into the mouth. This is completed in surgery as the gel is stronger than the gels you are provided to use at home.
Home Bleaching is slightly a slightly longer method, but it involves a peroxide gel, which is placed into a mouth guard like tray. It should be noted that it might several attempts in order to reach the desired shade.

How does whitening work?

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 methods are easy and effective ways of bringing out a natural whiteness in the teeth and they do this by simply flushing the pores on the surface of the teeth and the good news is that no damage to the teeth takes place.
Basically, whatever method is used the peroxide based gel is activated and then it begins to enter the teeth, this will lighten the teeth from the inside out. Whereas, with a standard whitening style toothpaste this is normally abrasive and just cleans the surface of the teeth. However, care should be taken not to use this type of toothpaste on a regular basis as they can damage the surface of the tooth.

How long will a teeth whitening treatment last for?

In most cases, the treatment last for up to three years, but this will depend on the patient. There are some things that will have a detrimental effect on how long the treatment lasts, these are smoking and eating or drinking something that can stain the teeth, such as coffee, red wine and dark fruits.
