All about teeth whitening in Fourways

We all know that first impressions are lasting. We all want a bright, white smile, but that’s not always possible. Thankfully there is dental bleaching, also known as teeth whitening, a dental procedure that can rectify the situation.

Why do teeth discolour?

Teeth can discolour for a number of reasons, such as after root canal treatment or due to age, smoking, bad oral hygiene, diseases, trauma, genetics and medicine. A tooth consists of two layers: the one is called dentin, the other enamel. As we eat and drink (or smoke), another layer is formed over the dentin and enamel, causing the tooth to discolour.

The good news is that you can reverse the effect of yellow teeth through a simple, painless procedure. Teeth whitening is an extremely effective way of getting the picture perfect smile that you have always dreamed of.

Before a dentist will prescribe any teeth whitening procedure, the dentist will first make sure your teeth are in a healthy condition. Teeth will be cleaned, cavities filled and gums will be checked. The dentist will clean your teeth and put a protective gel on it. He or she may prescribe one of many different teeth whitening solutions, such as hydrogen peroxide, the popular Bright Smile teeth whitening solution, or other type of procedure.

A combination of dental teeth whitening and home whitening can also be used, depending on the discoloration. You will most probably not obtain the same results with a home teeth whitening system when compared to the results you can get from a professional dentist.

A bright, white smile is in reach, as you can see. Contact Dr Cerny for more information about teeth whitening in Fourways.
