Frequently Asked Questions

Over time, your teeth can go from white to not-so-bright for a number of reasons:

Food and Drink

Coffee, tea and red wine are some major staining culprits. What do they have in common? Intense colour pigments called chromogens that attach to the white, outer part of your tooth (enamel).

Tobacco Use

Two chemicals found in tobacco create stubborn stains: Tar and nicotine. Tar is naturally dark. Nicotine is colourless until it’s mixed with oxygen. Then, it turns into a yellowish, surface-staining substance.

Age

Below the hard, white outer shell of your teeth (enamel) is a softer area called dentin. Over time, the outer enamel layer gets thinner with brushing and more of the yellowish dentin shows through.

Trauma

If you’ve been hit in the mouth, your tooth may change colour because it reacts to an injury by laying down more dentin, which is a darker layer under the enamel.

Medications

Tooth darkening can be a side effect of certain antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications. Young children who are exposed to antibiotics like tetracycline and doxycycline when their teeth are forming (either in the womb or as a baby) may have discoloration of their adult teeth later in life. Chemotherapy and head and neck radiation can also darken teeth.

All whitening toothpastes help remove surface stain through the action of mild abrasives that scrub the teeth. Unlike whitening gels such as hydrogen or carbimide peroxide, these types of products do not change the colour of teeth because they can only remove stains on the surface.

Many studies and reviews indicate tooth whitening is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure. The evidence points to tooth whitening to be one of the safest dental cosmetic procedure when supervised by a trained and registered dentist.

Tooth whitening should be however avoided in children less than 16 years old and during pregnancy.

Some people who use teeth whiteners may experience tooth sensitivity. That happens when the peroxide in the whitener gets through the enamel to the soft layer of dentin and irritates the nerve of your tooth. In most cases the sensitivity is temporary. You can delay treatment, then try again.

If you use too much whitening gel and it runs over your gums, you may experience bleached (whitened) gums. This is transient and usually resolves within a week.

Whitening temporarily makes your teeth more porous and absorbent to stains. This only occurs while using the whitening gel.

While whitening, you need to avoid tea, coffee, red wine and smoking.
