Are Your Teeth Discoloured?
Intrinsic teeth discolouration takes place from inside a tooth. This may be due to an old filling that has never been replaced, which can leave the tooth looking grey or almost black. Medications such as an antibiotic called tetracycline can bond to the calcium in teeth and cause discolouration, and sometimes genetics can cause teeth to be naturally more yellow instead of white. Some intrinsic discolouration may not respond to traditional teeth whitening solutions, but other options like dental veneers might help. A dental checkup will determine which solution is best for you.
Extrinsic discolourations are due to stains that form on the external, or outside of teeth. Beverages such as tea, coffee, wine or grape juice are the biggest culprits, while some foods like curry dishes can also stain. Smoking is another practice that can stain an entire set of teeth, resulting in yellowed colour and dingy look. This type of discolouration responds well to teeth whitening, sometimes in as little as one visit, or with a professional home whitening kit.

Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening can save you time and money and intervene if you have oral health issues. An experienced dentist can help determine the best treatment for your situation and make sure you get the results you want. The following are professional teeth whitening solutions and how they work.
Internal tooth whitening is typically used when a single tooth is discoloured due to trauma or discolouration from an old amalgam or mercury filling. Once the trauma is dealt with and the tooth is properly cleaned to ensure no further damage takes place, a bleaching gel is used inside the tooth and then a temporary filling is used to protect it. The tooth will become whiter in about 1-2 weeks.
In-Office Whitening takes place in the dental office and is a safe solution to quickly whiten teeth. During an office visit, a whitening gel is applied to the teeth, and then a blue light is used to activate the gel while you relax. The process takes about 90 minutes during which your eyes, lips and gums are protected. This option is preferred by many patients because it is a quick and safe solution with long-lasting results.
Professional Home Whitening kits are a slower and gentler approach to teeth whitening. The process is more cost-effective than in-office whitening, and is done in the privacy of your own home. After a dental exam, you will be given a dental tray and whitening solution that is created for your teeth. When at home, you will simply put the gel into the tray and wear it over your teeth for the designated time as instructed by your dentist. The process may take up to two weeks and is highly customised so you get the shade of white you are looking for.
