What causes teeth to discolour and how can professional teeth whitening in Waterford can help?
While a healthy white smile is on everyone’s wish-list, there are a number of reasons why teeth darken or discolour. Some we can’t control and others we can. That’s why it’s important to talk to your dentist if you are considering tooth whitening. Our Waterford dentist will be able to tell if your discolouration is simply down to factors like;
- The regular consumption of stain inducing foods and beverages such as red wine, coffee, food colourings or curry or tomato-based sauces
- Lifestyle factors such as smoking and
- Poor oral hygiene
Or other factors like
- The taking of medication – certain antibiotics such as tetracycline or allergy-relieving antihistamines are known to discolour teeth
- The wearing away of enamel as we age – exposing the darker dentin underneath, or
- Previous trauma or treatment to the tooth such as root canal therapy
In most cases, we can help restore your smile using Zoom teeth whitening. Waterford patients should know that even when teeth whitening isn’t the best option, we can recommend a variety of other treatments to restore your smile.
Tooth Whitening procedure in Waterford – How does it work
Zoom in-chair whitening
The procedure is very simple. Patients can sit back and relax as we safely whiten their teeth to the desired colour. The whole procedure is comfortable and takes around 1 hour to complete. At the end of the visit, patients can expect to see a noticeable and immediate difference to their smile.
Take Home Tooth Whitening in Waterford
Take-home tooth whitening is recommended for Waterford patients who prefer to whiten teeth in the comfort of their own homes at a convenient time. Take home whitening kits provide a cheaper alternative to Zoom chairside teeth whitening but results can be equally as effective. Patients will need to pay a visit to our Total Dental Care Studio where impressions of the teeth are used to make custom whitening trays.
Then the trays are simply filled with whitening gel and are worn for 30-45 minutes per day for around 2 weeks until the desired degree of whiteness has been achieved.
Whichever teeth whitening method you choose, our Total Care dentist would recommend that you avoid consuming any dark coloured foods or liquids for 7-14 days after treatment. This is because tooth enamel is particularly porous after the teeth whitening process. If you do want to consume darker foods and liquids, we would suggest rinsing immediately afterwards. Doing so ensures any stain particles are removed instantly so they won’t have time to penetrate the tooth and cause further staining.
