There’s a range of reasons teeth become discoloured. Genetics, your environment, even taking certain medication can all have an impact on the whiteness of your smile.
The most common reason is surface stains on your enamel. This is down to everyday food, drinks and lifestyle choices. Over time, these stains can work their way to the layer below enamel, known as dentin. When this becomes stained, the whole tooth looks darker because of the translucency of enamel.
There are several options, ranging from professional treatments, to over-the-counter whitening toothpastes. Prescribed whitening treatments from Philips Zoom! can give you a smile up to 8 shades whiter and take place either in-office or at home. The first step is a consultation with your dental professional.
Having a 6 monthly regular scale and clean with your dentist/hygienist is of paramount importance for your dental health. This will keep the surface stains on your teeth under control.
Whitening treatments that tackle stained dentin, the layer below your surface enamel, contain ingredients such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These react chemically with the carbon that causes dentin to yellow, leaving your teeth whiter from the inside out
Our whitening treatments are formulated to give you long-lasting results, but the results will vary depending on the type of whitening you opt for. Lifestyle choices, such as drinking drinks that stain teeth or smoking will make them darker again over time.
