The first step to a beautiful smile is healthy teeth and gums. We strongly believe that going back to basics and educating people about a healthy diet and correct oral maintenance is the key to having excellent oral health.
But when you decide to whiten your teeth, there are always some questions that come to mind.
How white will my teeth get?
Not all whitening treatments are equally effective, therefore you need to be realistic about your expectations when undergoing whitening. Teeth whitening is different for every person and there are many variables that will determine how white your teeth will get including:
- Original pigment (colour) of your teeth
- Your Lifestyle habits – food, drink, smoking etc.
- The whitening treatment (In Chair, Take-Home, Over-the-Counter)
- How well your teeth respond to the whitening agent
When whitening your teeth two to three shades can make a difference to anyone’s smile. Whilst whitening treatments can make this change, these variables need to be considered in your expectations.
Be aware that the many white smiles you see on your favourite social media pages may not be real teeth and could in fact be ‘veneers’ on the surface of the teeth. Again, remember to factor this into your expectations and do your research before buying.
How long will the treatment last?
Long-term results are dependent on your lifestyle habits and behaviours. Eating and drinking stain-causing food and drink, smoking, and trauma to the teeth can increase the rate of discolouration. However, with the correct maintenance such as regular check-ups at your dentist and daily care, the effects of teeth whitening can last for a few years.
Are there any side effects that may occur?
Teeth whitening is a non-invasive treatment and is completely safe when performed correctly.
Teeth whitening is not suitable for everyone and consulting a dentist before undergoing any teeth whitening treatment is strongly recommended. Please give Maven Dental New Farm a call who can advise on the best treatment for you based on your individual needs to help you brighten your smile for your wedding day.
