There is nothing that displays self-confidence like a great smile. However, there are many who are a little hesitant to smile ‘completely’ in public due to teeth that are far from sparkling. However, the great news is that these are issues that can be easily and quickly resolved using the latest technologies in cosmetic dentistry employed by leading dental hospitals and dental clinics.

Why Discoloration Happens:

The darkening of teeth due to extrinsic stains (surface stains) can be due to many reasons like dental plaque, calculus, tobacco, paan-chewing, drinking coffee/tea, medications etc. Causes for intrinsic staining can be tooth decay, dental trauma, fluorosis, ageing etc. Various techniques are used by dental professionals for teeth whitening. Hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is generally used during teeth whitening procedures.

The History of Teeth Whitening:

In cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening is the most requested procedure today. Interest in whiter teeth is not a new thing – people have been interested in gaining brighter smiles since ancient times. However, the teeth whitening methods recommended or adopted in the past, were nowhere close to the efficiency and speed of the teeth whitening methods available today. Historically, the teeth whitening methods were outright bizarre – for example, urine and goat milk was used by ancient Romans as teeth whitening agents! Things became a lot more scientific with time, with oxalic acid being proposed as a teeth whitening agent in1877. The first use of peroxide in teeth whitening was in 1884.

Teeth Whitening Today

Today, you do not need to invest much time, effort or money for a brighter smile. Teeth whitening technology has advanced to such a level that you can have whiter teeth in as quickly as an hour! For the best results in teeth whitening, you should approach only a reputed dental clinic or dental hospital, like Shalby Hospital.

the light-activated gel was developed by the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening, Discus Dental, after years of research. When activated by the ‘Zoom!’ light, this gel gently penetrates the teeth and removes discolouration and deep stains. After this, all one needs to do is take proper care of their teeth along with an occasional touch-up at home, to maintain their new sparkling smile for years.

For maintaining your new brighter smile, you will have to employ methods like flossing, chewing gum, brushing or rinsing after eating/drinking, the weekly use of whitening toothpaste, using a straw for drinking beverages like tea or coffee etc.
