Your teeth are in use daily, exposing the surface to various factors that may impact the colour and state of your teeth. Tooth enamel deteriorates naturally with age, but many daily habits can increase staining and discolouration.
Certain medications can influence the colour of your teeth, as can smoking. Although coffee is one of the best known teeth-staining substances, there are many other drinks and meals that may stain the enamel or even make it weaker. However, the most significant contributor to discoloured teeth is often poor dental hygiene.
If you wish to have your teeth brightened with our professional help, we will carry out a consultation to determine the most suitable method. Teeth-whitening with Pola® may be an option for you, or we may suggest another treatment such as Airflow® tooth polishing.
Pola® whitening is a gel-based method that efficiently brightens your teeth safely and quickly, depending on the treatment duration. This is a relatively fast procedure that can show results within a day.
The gel is applied to the enamel of your teeth where the product breaks down into water and oxygen ions, making stain molecules colourless. This process removes the broken-down stains by your natural saliva, taking effect fairly quickly.
You may be able to enjoy the results and your bright smile for a long time with good oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist to keep your teeth healthy. Avoiding tooth-staining substances will help you maintain a bright smile for even longer.
