opalescence teeth whiteningDiscolouration or stains on the teeth can have a negative impact on an otherwise nice looking smile. Even if teeth are straight or properly aligned, unsightly dark spots or discolouration (due to a number of factors) can still make a smile very unattractive – and can even make you look a lot older than what your actual age is. Teeth become stained or discoloured due to a variety of reasons (such as the natural ageing process, smoking, tooth decay, etc.), and the unsightly stains that are left on the teeth may be challenging to remove permanently.
Teeth whitening treatments are designed to improve the appearance of teeth, so their brightness and whiteness can be brought back; these treatments work in removing the stains or discolouration on the surface of the teeth, so that smiles can once again become white and healthy looking.
Home teeth whitening kits are available to lighten the teeth more gradually. In this case, the trays with bleaching agent can be worn overnight. With all whitening treatment, individual results will vary and are dependent on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.
