At DentistsRUs, our teeth whitening treatments are high on the list of sought out services. But beyond providing you with an in-office service to whiten your teeth, we also want to provide you with a service by informing you on how to prevent your teeth from becoming stained in the first place.
Your teeth will naturally yellow over time, but there are ways to safeguard against any extreme teeth staining…
Stain-Causing Food & Drinks
Food and drinks that are very dark in colour, often are the culprits behind stained teeth. Teeth are very porous, so they absorb colour easily. Not only the flat surface of your teeth, but the crevices well.
Even if you maintain the surface of your teeth, the in-between spaces of your teeth – where food debris can sit – often creates a yellow appearance. Coffee, tea, dark carbonated beverages, red wine, beets, blueberries, soy sauce, and smoking (just to name a few) all attribute to the yellowing effect of teeth.
7 minutes is all it takes for these stain-causing effects to occur, so ensure you are eating your stain reducing fruits and veggies throughout the day, brushing your teeth regularly, or even simply rinsing with water.
If you feel you need a professional whitening treatment, DentistsRUs provides you with dentists across the Lower Mainland who offer teeth whitening service. This service is known as Spa-Dent Whitening…
The Spa-Dent Whitening process provides the maximum whitening benefit in the least amount of time with virtually no sensitivity, all under the supervision of your Dental Professional. The revolutionary gel formulation is placed in the dual arch mouth trays with the precise dosage of whitening material. The unique blue and red LED light activates the gel, providing powerful whitening with cellular stimulation. Hydroxyl radicals penetrate the tooth enamel to break down stains into progressively smaller particles. This process will penetrate but not harm or damage the tooth enamel, including caps, crowns and veneers. The effect whitens the whole “smile” area of a patient’s teeth.
