There is a misconception many of us share, that teeth get yellow only through factors like irregular care and tobacco use. The truth is that as we age, our teeth gradually become yellow or stained due to a variety of reasons. They could be discoloured by antibiotics or certain acidic foods, and sometimes naturally have a more gray shade due to early tooth decay or illness while the tooth was forming.
We bring you the best dentist-supervised systems, which will
not only remove stains, but also help in creating a more pleasing smile.
How Does it Work?
We offer the best whitening system, which will give you a
painless experience with satisfying results. In this procedure, a protective
barrier is applied at your gum line and then the whitening agent is applied on
your teeth. A specially designed light then works with the agent to penetrate
your teeth, helping break and remove any discoloration. This treatment requires
only one visit and is therefore a quick, safe and effective way to whiten your
teeth. You can have a brand new shining smile in just 30 minutes.
Basic Aftercare for Tooth Whitening Procedures
Once your teeth have been professionally whitened, it becomes
essential to follow a good healthy and a balanced diet, to prevent further
discoloration and staining.
Here are a few few tips that can help:
Cut down on sugary foods and drinks
Brush your teeth regularly for two minutes, twice a day
Visit your dentist regularly for a checkup
Do not smoke, drink alcohol, or consume tea and coffee
atleast for the next two-three days.
TOOTH CLEANING & POLISHING
The most important and valuable visit for you would be for a
dental cleaning and check-up. Teeth cleaning & teeth polishing maintains your
oral hygiene & health. Daily brushing/ rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash might
not be enough to maintain a good oral health in the long term.
Regular dental teeth cleaning and polishing is the
cornerstone for a lifetime of dental health and the best insurance you can have
for keeping a healthy and attractive smile!
Why do you need to do scaling & polishing?
To remove stains caused by food
(coffee / tea) or tobacco.
To remove tartar or calculus – this
helps prevent gum diseases which are the main cause of gum recession, loose
teeth and subsequently, tooth loss.
To allow screening for oral disease
like decay and any cavities.
To keep your teeth and gums clean and
Specialized instruments are used to gently remove
plaque and calculus deposits without harming your teeth. The ultrasonic scaler
uses vibrations to loosen hardened tartar that attached to teeth or lodged in
between teeth and gums. Water spray is also used to wash away the debris.
Polishing is usually carried out after scaling to
remove stains and make your teeth feel smooth and shiny. Polishing is done with
a soft rubber cup that spins. Prophylaxis paste – a special toothpaste-like
material is scooped up into the cup and spun around on the teeth.
Difference between teeth whitening and scaling & polishing?
Teeth can become yellow with age and with continuous
consumption of dark staining foods like coffee, tea, red wine or tobacco.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that lightens
pigmentation within the teeth. Scaling and polishing is a procedure that removes
dental plaque, tartar and extrinsic stains that are present on the outer surface
of the teeth.
Scaling and polishing cleans your teeth, preventing and
controlling the severity of gum diseases. After scaling & polishing, teeth can
appear lighter if there are many stains on the outer surface of the teeth. If
the intrinsic colour of teeth is very yellow, there will be no changes after
teeth cleaning as the yellow colour comes from inside the tooth.
