If yellowing or stains on your teeth are affecting your confidence, a whitening treatment may be worth considering. Remember that teeth naturally begin to turn yellower and darker as we get older. The things we do in our everyday lives, consuming certain foods and beverages contribute to the discolouration of our teeth. Tea, coffee, and red wine are often blamed as the main culprits, but in reality even a healthy diet will result in some staining. The good news is that some of the staining caused by diet is ‘external’, and can be removed by your dentist.
However, sometimes teeth discolouration requires more complicated treatment from your dentist. If you have dental trauma from an accident, you have naturally ‘dark’ teeth, or you have teeth that came through already discoloured, this type of staining is ‘internal’ and conventional polishing techniques won’t work for you.
Crowns, veneers, fillings, and dentures will not whiten.
