Causes Of Stained Teeth
There are many possible causes of stained teeth that, in combination, have a cumulative effect over time, resulting in discolouration. Poor oral hygiene, decay or injury, and certain medications can cause your teeth to grey. Diet also plays its part with tea, coffee, colas, red wine, soy sauce, and balsamic vinegar the major culprits. Smoking, of course.
The presence of tetracycline in the teeth during childhood, calcium carbonate antacids, and hormonal changes during pregnancy, menstruation, and menopause can also impact the colour of your teeth.
Every treatment plan is bespoke and thus outcomes are truly individual and vary. Please contact your dentist for further information.
Teeth Whitening Kits
The idea of having whiter teeth is so popular nowadays that many people whiten their teeth with DIY home options such as whitening strips, toothpaste, tray kits, and mouthwashes. It can be hard to tell which is safe for your enamel and which is potentially damaging.
The Good Dentist provides take-home teeth whitening kits, a process that is carried out in the comfort of your own home that works to lighten discolouration of the enamel and dentine.
We have noticed more than ever through patient feedback that our patients prefer using the whitening kits in their own time and own comfort.
So, let’s break it down, what comes in our take-home teeth whitening kits?
In your kit you will receive:
- 2 upper and lower trays that are custom-made to fit your teeth
- 4 whitening syringes of 9.5% hydrogen peroxide
- sensitive toothpaste
- a travel case to keep your trays safe (so they last)
Is Teeth Whitening Painful?
Everyone is different and some patients may experience some sensitivity during the whitening process. The take-home teeth whitening kit allows you to whiten at your own speed and in your own time.
If you feel your teeth are very sensitive, we suggest swapping out your regular toothpaste and using the sensitive toothpaste provided in your kit. In extreme cases, patients can tone down the whitening to once every few days.
Cost Of Teeth Whitening
The Good Dentist take-home whitening kit costs $550. Depending on your goal or treatment plan with your dentist you should aim to whiten every day for 2-3 weeks straight for shiny bright results.
