Stained Teeth

Why Do People Get Stained Teeth?Stained Teeth

Very few people have brilliantly white teeth.  In general, our teeth become more discoloured as we get older. 

This can result from surface stains building up from food and drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine.  Smoking can also discolour teeth.  If not removed regularly, the build-up of calculus and tartar can also affect the colour of teeth.  Some people will also be affected by discolouration from within their teeth and this can result from taking certain antibiotics or when there are tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains.

How can I Whiten Stained Teeth?

Treatments include professional bleaching by your dentist using hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.  This will require 2-3 visits to your dentist and then further 30-60 minute treatments at home over the following 2-4 weeks. 

An alternative is laser whitening where bleach is painted onto your teeth and activated by a laser.  Home kits are also available but the results are often not as acceptable as those carried out professionally.  One drawback of bleaching, however, is the potential for causing acute sensitivity to the teeth due to the abrasive nature of the treatments.  Gum discomfort can also result, as can sore throats and white patches on the gum line.  These side effects are, however, usually temporary and will disappear in a few days.

A less invasive alternative is to use a whitening toothpaste.  These don’t affect the natural colour of your teeth but are effective at removing stains and therefore improving the overall appearance.

Elgydium Whitening Toothpaste, has been developed using micropulverised sodium bicarbonate to provide non-abrasive polishing and in-depth cleansing of the tooth enamel.  It can be used on a daily basis and has a pleasant menthol flavour.
