The teeth are a major constituent in the quality of your smile, and how they look matters. With time, the teeth can lose their shiny appearance and begin to show their age. Discolored teeth are simply an indication of their usage. Several factors can contribute to the teeth' discoloration, but the most common reason is the kind of foods we consume. Our teeth begin to lose their brightness from consuming foods and beverages dark in coloring or containing natural staining properties such as berries and tomatoes. After a while, your teeth can appear dull, reducing the quality of your smile and, in some cases, may even cause you to lose your self-confidence. A dental cleaning can remove many surface stains, but it may not be sufficient. But whitening your teeth can help erase the wear that comes from regular use and restore the glittering white gleam to your smile.
Normally one can expect the teeth whitening effects to last from six months to two years. Avoiding tea, coffee, and other beverages such as red wine, all of which cause the staining, and in the bargain, can help preserve the whitening results.
The teeth whitening procedure is absolutely safe, and you can protect your tooth's enamel with the help of calcium sulfate and fluoride while undergoing the procedure. One principal side effect of this procedure is tooth sensitivity. For most patients, sensitivity is temporary and only lasts as long as your treatment. Toothpaste designed for sensitivity can help to manage the discomfort. As soon as the whitening treatment is complete, the sensitivity should vanish.
