“Nearly everyone” could benefit from a teeth whitening procedure, it has been claimed.
Dental Health Magazine reports that there are many reasons why teeth can become discoloured, including smoking, ageing and drinking red wine or coffee.
Similarly, nerve degeneration can also cause the colour to change.
However, a teeth whitening treatment may help to alleviate the problem, the publication notes.
The procedure takes about 90 minutes and a whitening gel is used to release oxygen that lightens the dentine and enamel of the teeth, without altering their structure.
Although people with veneers, porcelains or old fillings may not respond to the treatment in the same way, the news provider points out that they can visit a cosmetic dentist who will be able to advise them on the best course of action.
Last week, Boulis Sami wrote for Lon’s Article Directory that laser teeth whitening is ideal for people who want quick results.
