Causes of Teeth Discolouration

Teeth become discoloured for a variety of reasons and luckily, most teeth can be returned to white with a teeth whitening service. Age plays a role in teeth becoming duller as well as external factors like smoking, certain foods and beverages. Some factors that can cause teeth to look dull or yellow include:
\

Certain medications

\

Regular coffee and tea drinking

\

Red wine

\

Curries or tumeric

\

Smoking

\

Dental calculus as stains become trapped under the buildup

\

Trauma to teeth

\

Aging

\

Genetics

Fortunately, each of these can be addressed with a teeth whitening service. Our experienced team here at Dental & Skin Clinic Melbourne can perform a dental examination and evaluation to discover the best whitening solution for your needs.

Smile Makeovers with Teeth Whitening

Dental And Skin Clinic Teeth Whitening After Bentleigh East, Bayside, Melbourne

If you want a smile makeover, teeth whitening is often a go-to treatment to begin your new, fresh look.

Even if you are choosing to use dental veneers to align your teeth or change their shape, getting your teeth professionally whitened can ensure your natural teeth are a white as possible, so we can create a brighter shade for the veneers to complete your new smile. In fact, we usually do the teeth whitening at the start of the procedure as well as the end.

Being Melbournians we love our coffee and teas, not to mention our red wines. These 3 beverages are the biggest contributors to stained or discoloured smiles.

But not to worry. You can have your coffee and a white smile thanks to our teeth whitening service! In addition to your preferred beverage, the type of discolouration your teeth have will also determine the dental solution that is used.

Dental And Skin Clinic Intrinsic Discolouration Bentleigh East, Bayside, Melbourne

Takes place from within a tooth. Often the result of medications or some antibiotics, the dentin inside the tooth can change colour to a greyish look. In this case, we may discuss a custom solution for you.

At the same time, an old filling may be seen through the enamel that has thinned with age, which may be addressed by replacing the filling or another custom solution that will be best for you.

Dental And Skin Clinic Extrinsic Discolouration Bentleigh East, Bayside, Melbourne

Is the more common type of discolouration that is mainly the result of smoking as well as staining foods and drinks. In addition, age may play a role as a protein buildup on the tooth can create a dingy look.

The dullness or yellow can often be addressed with our professional services, which we will tailor to suit your needs.

Don’t Fall for Gimmicks

Gimmicks abound in all businesses, including dentistry. Some rumours include whitening your teeth with apple cider vinegar, charcoal or coconut oil. Sadly, these are not effective, and as we always say, if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

In addition, teeth whitening toothpaste may remove some mild surface stains, but you will not get the same change of colour as you would with a professional whitening service.

If you truly want to upgrade your smile with whiter teeth in a safe and reliable way, use a professional with experience and skill, so you get the most value for your money with a great peace of mind.

In-Chair Teeth Whitening

Dental And Skin Clinic Holly Bentleigh East, Bayside, Melbourne

Our in-chair whitening service is the most powerful in the area because of our use of something we call “liquid gold.” This simply refers to our professional whitening solution that contains 38% hydrogen peroxide, compared to most other practices that may use the strength of 20% to 35%.

Our high concentration results in a professional teeth whitening service that is sought by contestants for Miss Universe Australia, beauty industry leaders and the Magic Mike Men!

During the in-chair whitening, you will relax while we position your cheeks and lips, so we have full access to all of your teeth. A soothing gel will then be placed over your gums and other areas where we do not need to whiten. Then we apply our “Liquid Gold”, and an hour later, you will leave with the bright smile that you deserve.

For the next two days, you will avoid smoking and consuming foods and drinks that stain since teeth are more porous for 48 hours after an intensive whitening session. But you can use a straw for drinking, and we promise those two days will be worth months to enjoy your beautiful, bright smile.

Start our Q & A about Teeth Whitening

What is the best whitener for your teeth?

The best way to whiten your teeth is to pair in-chair teeth whitening with a professionally made teeth whitening kit. You want to make sure you get the highest concentration of active ingredient which is 37.5% hydrogen peroxide for in-chair teeth whitening and 35% carbamide peroxide for home teeth whitening.

At Dental & Skin Clinic we have the highest concentration of active ingredient for both types of teeth whitening.

How much is it to get your teeth whitened at the dentist?

At Dental & Skin Clinic our in-chair teeth whitening is $690. Our popular teeth whitening service pairs nicely with our essential dental clean for an additional $219.

Our prices aren’t cheap because that would mean compromising on the quality. We aren’t expensive either because that would mean paying for a brand. We provide the best value for money.

Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth?

Not at all. All the research in the world has proven over and over again that teeth whitening is completely safe when administered by someone who knows what they’re doing i.e. a dentist.

Can yellow teeth be whitened?

Absolutely!

How can I make my yellow teeth whiter naturally?

Get a professional dental clean and get a diagnosis as to why your teeth look yellow.

How can I get white teeth in one day?

Hell yes teeth whitening is worth it.

Do whitening strips work?

Does insurance pay for teeth whitening?

Most don’t but some do. If you want to find out if your health insurance does, you should call and ask. Alternatively you can ask your dentist for the health insurance item codes and then call you health insurance and quote the numbers.

Even if your health insurance doesn’t cover the cost, the treatment is totally worth the price.

Why do my teeth look more yellow after whitening?

Teeth are temporarily porous for 48 hours from the time teeth whitening is done. So if you were to be a silly goose and you had a cup of coffee or tea within 48 hours of teeth whitening, that will make your teeth look more yellow.

Don’t do it and your teeth won’t look yellow after teeth whitening.
