Teeth Whitening – FAQ

Indigo Fair teeth whitening

What is tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening is a process known as oxidation. Any dis-colourations within the tooth will be lightened. Organic materials break down to remove staining and create a whiter brighter smile.

What causes my teeth to discolour?

There are many causes of tooth discolouration. Some of the most common include the consumption of highly coloured foods (berries) and drinks (coffee, tea, red wine). Antibiotics at young age, aging, smoking and trauma can also result in discolorations.

How long will it last?

Just touch up your teeth a few times per year for one or two days or nights. Without a touch up, your teeth will start to re-stain by the same things that caused them to discolour in the first place.

Dental Checkup

Regular Dental Checkups

Why should I go to the dentist regularly?

Many people only go to the dentist only if something hurts. Just remember you will only start having pain when the decay has reached the nerve meaning less options to save your tooth, more painful and more expensive. Decay or cavity in your teeth take months to years to develop and usually doesn’t hurt till it gets close to the nerve. Your dentist can detect the cavities at the beginning and most of them can be prevented with good oral hygiene. Early detection of tooth decay can save you from losing a tooth or root canal treatment, just a little filling and good oral hygiene can do the trick.

Brushing your teeth twice a day with soft toothbrush is really important to keep them clean and cavity free. Question is which toothbrush is better for you? Choosing a toothbrush largely depends on personal preference.

To help you understand the difference between these two types of toothbrushes, here are some pros and cons of both type of toothbrushes:

Baby Teeth

Why bother filling baby teeth?

As we all know, baby teeth aren’t permanent, they are the teeth your child will have for several years, until the permanent teeth come through. To preserve your child’s baby teeth, your dentist will sometimes clean out the cavities in baby teeth and fill them. The baby teeth help the adult teeth to come through properly. Losing baby teeth early isn’t good for your child’s permanent teeth. The long-term problems associated with decayed baby teeth and lack of proper treatment can affect your child’ oral and overall health. It seems like wastage of money to fill baby teeth as they aren’t permanent teeth but there are long- and short-term effects of not taking care of baby teeth.
