What Causes Staining & Discolouration?

A question we often get asked is the source of excessive staining and discolouration that necessitates cosmetic teeth whitening. More often than not, the culprits are staining foods and drinks, such as coffee, red wine, berries, soy sauce, and tea. Smoking tobacco is also linked to discolouration and discomfort in the gums over long periods. As we age, we naturally absorb more colourants from our food, which can increase staining.

Of course, cosmetic teeth whitening is not always the optimal solution for all situations of staining. For instance, if you have an underlying orthodontic condition that affects the enamel, the treatment may not be as effective. Having a sit-down discussion with our dentist will undoubtedly help determine the best course of action for you.

The Teeth Whitening Procedure

We’re always careful when it comes to initiating a plan for your oral health. As such, we will always begin proceedings with a consultation and discussion of your options. From there, we can conduct a full oral health assessment

Every practice will have its own teeth whitening procedure. However, the underlying process remains relatively similar across the board. In-practice procedures typically involve a high-density peroxide applied to the tooth, soaking into the smaller pores of the enamel and dentin, which is then activated by light or heat. This reaction dissolves or reduces the instances of discolouration and staining by allowing more light to shine and reflect off the tooth, giving it a whiter and brighter look.

After your session is complete, you’ll notice an immediate difference in your smile. While it doesn’t last forever, if you take care of your daily oral care procedures and regular dental care – you’ll have an absolutely pearly grin for a long time to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I just buy those whitening toothpastes instead?

You may have seen the over-the-counter alternatives from major retailers that claim to have the same brightening power as in-practice alternatives. While these are effective in dealing with surface level stains, they are not as potent against the deeper discolourations that tend to cause more grief for all of us.

The over-the-counter alternatives also tend to have a lower level of hydrogen peroxide (maximum of 6% in Australia), which is the key instigator of the brighter, whiter smiles we all want. Your Hervey Bay dentist is permitted to use higher potency products that elicit a much better result.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

This will vary from patient to patient, depending on the number of visits required for the full procedure to be completed. Some require follow-up appointments, while others occasionally require moulds to be taken prior to the procedure. When you book in your consultation, we will be happy to discuss payment options and alternatives.
