Tooth Whitening – Marquess Dental

1 Minute 15th November 2013

Everyone wants a bright, white, natural and glowing smile. It’s well documented that some celebrities go to great lengths to achieve it too, whether that’s through vastly expensive treatments or brushing their teeth a dangerously excessive amount of times every day.

Stains come in all shapes and sizes: spots, blotches, a line that crosses the tooth or even a dark ring that circles between the teeth. Some stains are small, covering a small section of a single tooth and some are far larger, covering several teeth. Some stains can be tackled with a regimented brushing routine and off the shelf whitening products whilst some will demand much more specific treatment.

There’s no single cause of stains either. Stains can occur for a variety of reasons and some of these can be very complex, such as those that develop as a tooth forms. These are known professionally as intrinsic stains and often require very specialist treatments. Others are formed as a result of consuming certain certain foods and drinks. With food and drink, a combination of two factors – the level of acidity and the strength of the enamel – will determine the likelihood of any stains. Strong enamel will stain far less easily and low acidity foods are much less likely to stain your teeth.

The good news is that these stains are both preventable and in most cases treatable. As with many things, prevention is often better than the cure, so be sure to brush your teeth well twice a day, adhere to a balanced and healthy diet, target low acidity foods and use enamel boosting toothpastes.
