One of the problems of life today is the type of foods and drink we consume. However, it is often not realised that certain foods and drinks can discolour the teeth. Similarly, tobacco smoking is also well known to affect tooth enamel as well as the breath.
However, if your teeth are in need of a tooth lift, so to speak, it may be worth considering getting them whitened. For information about teeth whitening contact Teeth Whitening London.
Contrary to popular belief, tooth whitening will not completely whiten teeth; what it will do, however, is improve the way they look, by removing staining and much of the discolouration. This is achieved by bleaching the teeth.
There are two ways to have your teeth whitened, do it yourself or have a dentist carry out the procedure. Generally speaking, it is not a good idea to do it yourself, even though there are products on the market. The reason is quite simple; while tooth whitening is not major oral surgery it is nevertheless a medical procedure that requires care and attention; over-bleaching can result in thinning of the enamel.
While a simple process, teeth whitening can take up to four weeks for the procedure to be completed. It all depends on how the individual dentist operates.
