Tooth discolouration or staining is a highly common condition that affects most adults. There are two main types of tooth discolouration, which are extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic discolouration is when the staining occurs only on the surface of the tooth. This is mainly caused by your individual eating and drinking habits, as consuming dark coloured foods can leave a stain that becomes more visible over time. From wine to coffee, dark berries and smoking, extrinsic discolouration can usually be fixed through professional whitening treatments.
On the other hand, intrinsic discolouration is a result of tooth decay, injury, medication or even genetics. They are often harder to fix through whitening treatments as the discolouration is not exclusive to the outer layer of the tooth. For older patients, it’s also normal for the enamel on your teeth to wear away, which can make your teeth appear yellow as it becomes more susceptible to discolouration.
Only available through qualified dentists, the Pola Day teeth whitening treatment is available in various strengths to suit the needs of different patients. Using a neutral pH tooth whitening formula, Pola Day contains fluoride to remineralise your teeth and protect against tooth sensitivity. Depending on the shade you want to achieve, budget and your current oral condition, your dentist will recommend a hydrogen peroxide level of either 3%, 6%, 7.5% or 9.5%. To ensure maximum benefit, we recommend that you apply the formula for at least 30 minutes a day.
Simple and easy to use, Opalescence Go treatments can be used right out of the box for your convenience. The treatment comes complete with an UltraFit tray that can sit comfortably in any bite shape. The whitening gel is available in either a melon or mint flavour and contains both potassium nitrate and fluoride to help minimise tooth sensitivity. Available in either 10% or 15% hydrogen peroxide options, if you’re interested in improving the appearance of your teeth at the comfort of your own home, book in a consultation with Suncoastdental today. We also offer various other dental restoration services to protect your teeth for the long run.
