Despite what the latest commercial for tooth whitening strips/gels/cerebral implants (OK that’s not a thing yet, but Google is probably working on it) tell us, there is no “one size fits all” approach to getting whiter teeth. Even for people with similar lifestyle and dietary habits, like smokers or tea and red wine drinkers, no two sets of teeth will become discolored and stain in quite the same way. Stains Teeth Whiteningcaused by food, which form from their interaction with the enamel on the surface of our teeth, are different from stains that result from trauma or certain medications, essentially staining the teeth from the inside out. While over the counter products can help with surface stains, they aren’t always strong enough to significantly remove all types of stains, and uniformly whiten the teeth.
Teeth Whitening in Bradford
Dr. Michael Laureola, a dentist at South Simcoe Dental Care in Bradford, Ontario, works closely with each patient to identify the nature and source of the staining and discoloration, in order to find the best whitening method. Because our teeth are subjected to a variety of outside stimulants, such as food, medication, and trauma, different methods are used to treat the teeth depending on the color of the stains. In some cases, porcelain veneers, bonding, or crowns are a better option. However, most people whose teeth have become dull from the normal wear and tear of everyday habits and aging see great results from professional teeth whitening treatments. In many cases, whitening the smile a few shades can even take years off of the entire face!
