Do you look in the mirror and miss your once-bright and white smile? Teeth naturally stain over time due to the foods and drinks we consume and due to ageing. Discoloured and stained teeth can look yellow or brown, depending on your lifestyle and natural enamel colour.
Certain foods and beverages will stain teeth more than others. Some of the biggest culprits are:
Spices like curry and turmeric
Coffee and tea
Wine and soft drinks
Tobacco use will also prematurely stain teeth and can lead to gum disease, oral cancer and puts your overall health at risk.
Why Should I Whiten My Teeth?
White teeth are associated with a healthy smile. While teeth bleaching is not necessary for good oral health, many people feel motivated to care for their teeth when they have a youthful, white appearance.
What About DIY or Store-Bought Teeth Whitening Products?
Many over-the-counter whitening kits are not endorsed by cosmetic dentists in Sydney, nor are they considered effective or safe.
Whitening kits from shops and salons are often costly and deliver results that can appear uneven, lacklustre or cause unnecessary sensitivity.
Recently, we have seen an increasing number of patients suffering from damage and discomfort caused by DIY teeth whitening kits.
A Better Smile Dental Centre uses Philips Zoom! Teeth Whitening is renowned globally for being one of the best forms of teeth whitening available. The entire procedure generally takes 45 minutes, made up of three 15-minute sessions achieving up to eight shades whiter, depending on your level of staining.
We recommend starting any teeth whitening procedure with a thorough dental clean in our Sydney CBD or Lane Cove dental clinics. A dental clean will remove tartar and surface stains, giving you better overall results.
Is Teeth Whitening Expensive?
Prevent yourself from having further dental problems by booking a professional ZOOM! Teeth Whitening session with your dentist. Our Zoom! Whitening session is priced at $590 with the ability to get a check-up and x-ray for free.
Teeth whitening is one of the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures available and is safe for most patients when performed under the supervision of a qualified dental professional.
