Five top tips for a Hollywood smile
If you’ve tried countless whitening toothpastes but still don’t have the brighter smile you’re looking for, we can help. Here are our five top tips to help whiten your teeth:

  1. Cut down on the amount of coffee, red wine and cola you drink – these can darken the tooth’s enamel. Rinsing your mouth with water after drinking these will also help.
  2. Quit smoking – we all know it’s bad for us, but tobacco also causes staining of the teeth, bad breath and a diminished sense of taste.
  3. Have regular exam and cleans. When plaque builds up on the teeth, over time it hardens into tartar – a brownish substance often found at the gum line. Because tartar is porous, it absorbs stains from hot drinks and nicotine more easily, exaggerating the discolouration.
  4. Brush your teeth after every meal.
  5. Talk to your DentalCareXtra dentist about the safe and effective professional treatments available to brighten and whiten your smile.

How does tooth whitening treatment work?
Here at DentalCareXtra, we have extensive experience in delivering teeth whitening treatments that suit the budgets and lifestyles of our clients. Your dentist will discuss which route will best improve the colour of your teeth:

  • Whitening with a bleaching gel. A light-activated bleaching gel is applied to the teeth, delivering significantly whiter results in just 30 – 45 minutes. Depending on the severity of the discolouration, follow-up treatments may be needed, or take-home bleaching trays may be recommended.
  • At-home treatments. The bleaching gels used are not as strong as those we are able to use in-chair at DentalCareXtra and thus the process takes longer (generally between two and four weeks). Impressions of the teeth are taken to create custom-made mouth guards that are used as trays to hold the whitening gel; worn for 60-90 minutes a day for up to three weeks.
  • Over-the-counter whitening products are weaker still, but they will help to lighten your teeth over time.
  • Fitting a crown or veneer. When discolouration is quite pronounced, the tooth can be covered with a colour-matched composite bonding material to form a single crown, or multiple ceramic veneers.
