What Is Teeth Whitening?

This is a process that helps lighten your teeth’s colour. Most people’s teeth are not perfectly white. In fact, they may have a slightly yellow or grey tint. Naturally, they tend to discolour over time due to a number of different factors. These include:

  • Drinking coffee, tea or red wine
    Smoking tobacco products
  • Eating certain foods and drinks that can cause staining (such as curry)
  • Taking certain medications that can lead to tooth discolouration
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • The ageing process

The main reason these kinds of food and drinks stain teeth is that they contain pigments attached to the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening treatments help break down these pigments, making your teeth appear brighter and whiter.
