I can buy a kit online. Why should I not do that?
The safety and effectiveness of buying a kit online and not through a professional cannot be guaranteed. The chemicals used to bleach away the stains on your teeth could be too harmful and strip your teeth of its protective coating, causing extreme sensitivity and even cause further discolouration.
That is because when the enamel on your teeth is reduced, you will find your teeth are more yellowed. This is what we call discolouration caused by ageing. By understanding that discolouration can be caused by a multitude of factors, we can begin to see the complexity of this treatment. There are several factors that do need to be evaluated before your teeth whitening in Glasgow so that we can expect realistic results.
What causes my teeth to turn yellow?
When we take a look at your teeth and discuss with you your lifestyle choices, we can determine what we believe to be the cause of the staining and therefore apply a treatment program that will be the most effective for you.
There are some kinds of discolouration that we are unable to have a significant effect on, such as discolouration caused by medication or from previous dental treatments such as a root canal.
Staining from foods or drink can be treated and we can work on this mistreatment to your teeth from many years ago. If you are unsure what kinds of foods will stain your teeth, simply determine whether the consumable in question will stain a white shirt, if the answer is yes, then it will be able to have an effect on the colour of your teeth over time.
How do I care for my teeth after the treatment?
The first 48 hours are the most important in caring for your smile if you want to enjoy the best effects of your teeth whitening treatment. Make sure you avoid any food or drink that can heavily stain your teeth as they are the most susceptible at this time.
By brushing your teeth regularly and perhaps choosing a whitening toothpaste and toothbrush, you can work on maintaining your brighter and healthier looking smile for years to come.
