Frequently Asked Questions
What causes teeth to stain?
Staining of the teeth can be caused by many different sources. Some medications are known to have a side-effect of tooth staining. Foods and beverages such as coffee, wine, tea, berries, etc are known to contribute. Genetics, fillings, and trauma may all cause discoloration. Stains can be on the surface or internal. Many over-the-counter teeth whitening products only address surface stains. It is always best to consult a dentist when choosing a teeth whitening product.
How can teeth be made white again?
There are a lot of different whitening products out there. There are toothpastes and rinses that may provide some effect on surface staining. The products that have the most effect have either hydrogen or carbamide peroxide as an active ingredient. The peroxide enters the porous teeth and moves freely throughout the enamel and dentine. It then breaks down the long chain particles that cause discoloration.
How long will results last?
Periodic touch ups may be necessary depending on patient preference. Many variables affect the duration of any whitening product including diet, medications, and genetics. Some patients will want to visit my teeth whitening clinic to "top up" every 6-8 months.
Will my teeth/gums be sensitive?
Boutique Whitening contains Potassium Nitrate which reduces the amount sensitivity experienced. If you do experience sensitivity, it is usually only slight and temporary.
