Teeth Whitening

Pearly, white, sparkly teeth: this is what everyone likes, but only some have them. Coffee, wine, tobacco, and medications, all can leave traces. As the years pass by, the shade of your teeth gets transformed from snowy white to ivory yellow. Lots of individuals feel hesitant to show their wide smiles. That is a very serious issue, as the smile is one of the most determining aspects of the first impression we leave on others. Reasons for yellow and discolored teeth:

  • Some of the elements that cause teeth to appear yellow and stained are:
  • Smoking with by-products of tar and nicotine leaves unappealing brown pigments.
  • Tea and coffee will have the same effect over time.
  • Teeth can naturally become a shade darker than desired because of heredity.
  • Wearing braces or other dental devices for lengthy periods will stain the enamel.

We will first apply a protective gel to your gums or place a rubber shield to protect your gums. The bleach is then applied to your teeth. At Smile Space, we also provide laser treatment for teeth whitening. With teeth whitening laser treatment, you can have whiter teeth in just one session.

Maintain your brighter teeth by:

  • Avoid consuming any food or beverages which stain teeth. If you choose to consume beverages that stain teeth, consider using a straw so that the beverage does not touch your front teeth.
  • Brush or rinse immediately after consuming food or beverages that stain teeth.
  • Brush twice daily and floss once a day to remove plaque properly as stains get embedded in the plaque. Use whitening toothpaste once a week to remove superficial stains and brush with normal toothpaste regularly.
  • Consider touch-up treatments. You may need a touch-up every 6 months or once or twice a year depending on your dietary habits and lifestyle.
