WHY WE SHOULD WHITEN OUR TEETH?
There are many reasons why we should whiten our teeth. Just like individual hair color and skin color are different, our teeth are also different. There are very few people who have perfect white teeth. In addition, teeth can discolor as we age.
Food and drinks like tea, coffee, wine and blackcurrants can all stain the surface of our teeth. Tobacco is also one of the factors.
Some people may also have stains on the surface of their teeth due to the effects of antibiotics or due to tiny cracks on the teeth causes stain.
HOW LONG DOES WHITEN EFFECT LAST?
The bleaching effect will usually last for 2 years. However, this depends on each person. The effect is shorter if you smoke or eat foods that can stain your teeth. Ask your dentist for specific advice before proceeding with the service.
MAY TEETH PERFORMED FILLING AND ROOT CANAL BE BLEACHED?
The answer is yes, sometimes dead teeth may discolor after filling. After the tooth has been rooted, the canal (covering the nerves) can be opened again. Whitening products will be applied on the inner side to whiten teeth.
