Frequently Asked Questions on Teeth Whitening


 
 

Why should I consider having a whiter smile?

It's quite simple. Your teeth need care and attention like any other part of your body. Over a period of time, teeth can become dull and yellow due to constant wear and staining (or you may have experienced discoloration due to disease or genetic influences). Brushing your teeth will help to keep them healthy and clean, but it won't necessarily keep them white and shiny.

And studies show that white, shiny teeth tend to enhance our self-esteem and confidence - and frequently make us look younger than people who don't whiten.

In addition to the aesthetic reasons, it is also true those people who have whitened their teeth may develop better oral care habits overall, such as:

  • A greater awareness of their teeth and the need to be more compliant with their oral hygiene routine, including daily care and routine professional cleanings.
  • Are more open to additional cosmetic dental procedures including replacing restorations and crowns and considering veneers.
  • Typically have healthier gums and fresher breath.

Genetics: Your teeth may be shining white or have a shade of yellow. It all depends on your genes. If you are lucky enough, you might be be born with a nice set of white teeth. People with genetic problems have teeth that appear yellow or discolored. This is usually a result of the color in the dentin.

Physical causes: There can be various causes behind discoloration of your teeth. Teeth can become stained due to smoking, medications, tea, coffee, cigarettes and other tobacco products. Even soft drinks like cola can cause teeth to be stained.

Stained and discolored teeth look ugly and affect your appearance and personality. Teeth whitening can help you get back your naturally white teeth.

Studies have shown that not only do people who have whiter teeth look younger than people who don’t, but there is a correlation between high self-esteem and a white, confident smile. In addition to the aesthetic reasons, it is also true those people who have whitened their teeth:

- Develop a greater awareness of their teeth and become more compliant with their oral hygiene routine, including daily care and routine professional cleanings.

- Are more open to additional cosmetic dental procedures including replacing restorations and crowns and considering veneers.

- Typically have healthier gums and fresher breath.
