(q): What causes tooth discoloration?
(a): The most common cause include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, pops, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
(q): Is whitening safe?
(a): Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that teeth whitening is safe and that the active materials, Hydrogen Peroxide, have been used for many years with no indication of any harmful effects. In fact, Health Canada considers teeth whitening to be a cosmetic, and not a dental procedure, permitting non-dental persons with the appropriate training to legally conduct the procedure.
(q): Will my teeth resemble those of Hollywood stars after a teeth whitening treatment?
(a): Cosmetic teeth whitening has its limits of effectiveness and will not produce the pure white colour seen on celebrities. Well are celebrities simply genetically lucky? No, it means that they have often paid many thousands of dollars for Porcelain Veneers to straighten their teeth and make them lily white. Cosmetic teeth whitening generally makes a noticeable difference in whiteness and brightness of natural teeth, at a much lower cost than Veneers.
