Over the course of time, your teeth can get stained. This is attributable to either intake of food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine and blackcurrant or smoking can also stain teeth. ‘Calculus’ or tartar can also affect the color of your teeth. Some people may have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or by tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains. Teeth whitening is a safe and a very commonly used process which ensures that your teeth get back to their original pearly white color.
Tooth whitening is a standard procedure in the field of cosmetic dentistry. With technological advancement, we have been able to introduce equipment which has the same or better results, however, brings ease and pace to the entire process. Zoom whitening or better understood as “Laser Activated Whitening” uses metal halide or laser light for brightening the teeth. This process is so active that it can bring about a difference of a few shades lightening within a few minutes. At Dr.Laud’s clinic, we are an expert in providing the Whitening treatments at a practical cost that suits every pocket.
What are the causes of yellow teeth?
Multiple factors cause teeth to become dull and lose their whitening over the years. Certain foods and beverages adversely affect the tooth enamel to such as extent that over the repeated use of these ingredients your teeth lose their original coloration. Some of the reasons for your teeth turning yellow are – drinking tea/coffee, smoking cigarettes, aging, poor diet, poor supplements, suffering from a dry mouth, antibiotic medications, excessive fluoride intake or genetic factors.
