As we get older, our teeth become discoloured due to factors such as age, drinking and eating habits, and tobacco use. This doesn’t mean we have to resign ourselves to having a lifetime of discoloured teeth. These days, teeth whitening techniques can restore teeth to their original “whiteness” and them some!

Why are your teeth stained?

Before we can decide which option of whitening will be the most effective for you, you need to understand how your teeth become stained in the first place.  This includes:

  • Incorrect brushing and flossing habits which will lead to an excessive build-up of tartar (calculus)
  • Smoking cigarettes which contains many harmful ingredients, including poisonous tar that stains teeth
  • Drinking dark coloured drinks, such as red wine, coffee, cola and tea
  • Tooth trauma and grinding of teeth which will cause damage to the teeth
  • Excessive exposure to fluoride as a young child

Though these are the most common reasons for having stained teeth, there are options available to minimise further discolouration, like using the right whitening techniques.

Is it safe?

Here at 7 Pearls Dental Newcastle, your dentist will check that you’re a suitable candidate for teeth whitening during your consultation. We will also make sure you understand the possible side-effects, which can include teeth sensitivity for up to a few days following the treatment.

You will receive detailed instructions from your dentist on how to use your take-home whitening kit safely, to avoid any problems. Using it incorrectly can cause permanent damage if the whitening solution comes into contact with your gums for an extended time.

The Dental Board of Australia requires that whitening products with more than a 6% concentration of bleaching agents should only be used by a qualified dental practitioner. This is specifically why over-the-counter treatments have a reduced concentration levels compared to prescribed treatments. *

Gum health: When our experienced dentist applies bleach or whitening product to your teeth, you can rest assured that they are doing it professionally and the product will not affect your gums.  As the higher bleach concentration, the greater the risk of gum irritation, it needs to be applied carefully and with the use of protective equipment to prevent damaging your gums.

Teeth sensitivity: as mentioned before, tooth sensitivity is a common side-effect of teeth whitening products which is why it is advisable to consult a dentist before a whitening product is applied. Our dentists check for tooth damage that may cause further sensitivity or discomfort during treatment, perhaps applying a high concentration of Fluoride a few days before treatment to reduce teeth sensitivity.

What to do after your teeth whitening treatment

As with any cosmetic treatment, dental or otherwise, what happens after you leave the surgery is just as important as what happens in the chair. To maintain your new whiter teeth and achieve optimal dental hygiene, we recommend you:

  • Continue to brush your teeth properly, twice daily
  • Floss every day
  • Avoid smoking
  • Drink plenty of water and avoid drinks and foods likely to stain your teeth coffee, black tea, red wine- anything that can stain a white shirt can stain your teeth especially post whitening). If you can’t avoid these drinks, consider drinking them through a straw
  • Avoiding acidic food and drinks that can damage your tooth structure

At 7 Pearls Dental, we use only the best for our patients. Zoom! Whitening has been shown to make your teeth up to eight shades lighter!**. Furthermore, supervision under a dental professional has shown that whitening is safe for both your teeth and gums***.
