Improve your smile with teeth whitening Macleod

Teeth staining occurs as a result of many different reasons. It is important that you brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss after meal times. Poor dental hygiene such inadequate brushing or flossing, can result in stains building up on the surface of your teeth. If you do not visit the dentist regularly then the stains will adhere to the teeth so that even after you brush and floss you are still troubled by yellow teeth. Certain foods and drinks such as tea, coffee, cola and red wine, if consumed regularly can have an effect on the colour of your teeth. Certain substances in your food such as turmeric and other highly pigmented fruits or vegetables can also stain your teeth. Another main cause of staining is tobacco. Whether you chew tobacco or you smoke cigarettes they can have a huge impact on not only the appearance of your teeth but also your dental health and overall well-being. Lifestyle changes and looking after your teeth well are very important in maintaining good dental health and beautiful white teeth.

Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide.

Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are used to whiten the teeth. These are bleaching agents that break down the stain molecules on the surface of your teeth. Hydrogen peroxide is the active ingredient which begins to work immediately whereas carbamide peroxide is more gentle and needs to be broken down into hydrogen peroxide and urea to slowly break down the remaining stain molecules on your teeth. They will be prescribed to you as a gel and at the dental practice this will be applied directly to your teeth and activated using a UV light to whiten your teeth in a short amount of time. At home the gel will be worn in an individually tailored whitening tray that is worn in the mouth for a prescribed amount of time during the day and again overnight whilst you sleep.
