Your teeth lose its natural brightness as you age, or due to medication, tobacco use, and improper oral care. For this reason, teeth whitening procedures have become the most sought after cosmetic dental treatment at Veeran Dental. Teeth whitening is the easiest way to effectively improve how your teeth look.
The colour of natural teeth is created by the reflection of light on the enamel - the outer layer of the tooth - combined with the colour of the dentin under it. Your genes play a role in how thick or smooth the enamel is. Thinner enamel allows the dentin to show through the tooth, while smoother or rougher enamel affects the way light reflects on the tooth, therefore, it changes the colour too.
Tooth enamel contains tiny pores that can trap the thin coating (pellicle) that forms on the enamel, causing stains and discolouration. Stains and discoloration can be eliminated with teeth whitening; however, teeth whitening is not a permanent procedure. Therefore, Dr Veeran recommends that you schedule two teeth whitening appointments with her dental practice, every year.
