What are the stains on my teeth?
There are two types of tooth stains that can occur on your enamel: intrinsic and extrinsic. Extrinsic staining occurs on the surface of a tooth and can be removed with regular brushing and dental hygiene, and whitening toothpastes. However, the intrinsic stains are rooted deep in the enamel, and require special teeth whitener. While teeth are extremely hard, they are still porous. The whitener can permeate the enamel where the brushing cannot, and subsequently turn the tooth into the desired colour.
How long does it last?
Teeth whitening can last from anywhere up to 3 years, but it depends on the person, and the intensity of the treatment. However, teeth whitening does not last forever, and will eventually fade, so you will need to get repeat treatment if you want the effects to last. As the teeth are porous, it all depends on how effectively the treatment can permeate the enamel. If you are a local in Bedford, teeth whitening is available at our practice, and will come with a consultation about how best to approach the treatment. While you are there, why not ask for a full consultation, and we can assess other, more advanced areas of your facial structure that could potentially be improved
Is teeth whitening harmful?
Whitening teeth can be harmful if the practitioner is not trained or has not the sufficient license to carry out the procedure. The whitening agent, if not used correctly, can irritate the gums and cause sensitivity and discolouring. However, as our practice is full of experienced professionals, there are no risks to this procedure, and the results will be clear and well explained.
Benefits of teeth whitening
Tooth whitening can have a fantastic effect on self-esteem and looking younger. It is also extremely easy to maintain, risk-free, and does not include any surgery or complicated procedures. Some whitening methods can also help to reduce the symptoms of sensitive teeth, as the porous nature of the enamel is part of the same treatment for sensitive teeth as it is for teeth whitening. In Bedford, our practice is centred around promoting a healthy and natural body image, and teeth whitening is one of the most effective ways to do this. It also has very little side effect but may include some tenderness post-treatment.
At Infinity Aesthetics we offer a variety of advanced methods and treatments in order to fit the body image that you aspire to. Having provided 17 years of cosmetic services, we can assure you that our teeth whitening processes are as effective as can be.
