Improve Your Smile and Confidence with Dental
The first thing that people may notice about you is your smile. If you teeth
are stained or gapped, you may find yourself trying to hid your mouth
when you smile, destroying your confidence and giving the impression that
you are shy when you may not be. However, with the help of Greenslopes
Dental and techniques to help improve the appearance of your teeth, you
will be smiling confidently in no time.
Teeth can be stained over time by what we eat and drink, as well as
smoking. Tea, coffee, blueberries and curry are some of drinks and foods
we consume that can cause our teeth to be discoloured over time. Taking
iron supplements and the accumulation of plaque and tartar on our teeth
can cause the same problem.
For teeth that are discoloured by external causes, regular cleaning of your
teeth can health, but bleaching your teeth or using whitening substances,
like whitening toothpaste or whitening strips can help to remove surface
stains. There are over the counter products you can buy, but your dentist
can treat your teeth with a whitening agent that can help lift stains and
whiten your teeth up to eight shades lighter.
Discolouration can also be caused by internal problems, beneath the
surface enamel of teeth. Teeth that start turning yellow can be a symptom
of aging, but it can also be a sign
excessive fluoride intake, some antibiotics can cause the teeth to become
discoloured or injury to a tooth can cause internal discolouring as well.
Bleaching or whitening teeth will not help with internal discolouration.
Your dentist can apply veneers to your teeth to help them look better if
they are discoloured, gapped or misshaped. Veneers, or facings, are
generally affixed to the front teeth to give them a better appearance.
Though veneers are not as strong as crowns, they are not as expensive
either. To find out about treatments to improve the appearance of your
