Who Can (and Can’t) Bleach Their Teeth?

Not everyone is a candidate for teeth bleaching. Here’s a quick guide:

  • Ideal Candidates: Those with healthy teeth and gums, and no fillings or restorations.
  • Not Recommended for Pregnant or nursing women, children under 16, and individuals with gum disease, worn enamel, cavities, or allergies to bleaching products.

Benefits and Risks of Teeth Bleaching

  • Benefits: Boosts self-confidence, removes stains, and enhances your smile’s aesthetics.
  • Risks: Temporary sensitivity, gum irritation, and uneven whitening are possible, but rare with professional guidance.

Understanding Teeth Staining: What Can and Can’t Be Done

There are two main types of teeth staining: extrinsic (surface stains) and intrinsic (deep stains).

  • Extrinsic Stains: Caused by coffee, tea, wine, and smoking. These are ideal for bleaching.
  • Intrinsic Stains: Result from medication, aging, or injury. These are more challenging and may require alternative treatments.

The Opalescence Difference

Why do we love Opalescence at Smiles4All?

  • Tailored Treatments: Options for both in-office and take-home treatments.
  • Safe and Effective: Designed for various sensitivities and offering long-lasting results.

Our Teeth Whitening Process: A Journey to Brightness

  • Day 1: Setting the Stage: It all starts with teeth cleaning and micro abrasion to prep your teeth.
  • Days 2 & 3: Beginning at Home: We provide Opalescence gum guards for a 15 to 30-minute morning application at home.
  • Day 3: The In-Studio Transformation: We apply a Opalescence bleach, rinse, and reapply over two hours for a profound effect.
  • Development and Aftercare: The whitening effect develops over time. We recommend Curaprox ‘Black is White’ and ‘Be You’ toothpastes for maintenance, along with dietary adjustments for 14 days post-treatment.

Take-Home Kits

For those preferring home treatment, we offer Opalescence take-home kits with standard gum guards (upper and lower). The kit includes 5-10 trays depending on your needs.

How to use the take-home kit:

Every morning for 5-10 days you will insert your Opalescence gum guards for 15-30 minutes.

Many of the ingredients also include essential oils, fluoride, sodium chloride, and Nystatin (antifungal) to name a few. Mouthwash has been around for many years, and in those years, it was made of substances that included essential oils, olive juice, and, other raw materials. As always the principles of mouthwash was and still is to ensure the destruction of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms that may cause diseases amongst other.

Your tandarts Centurion recommends using mouthwash as part of your oral hygiene procedures

Mouthwash in your daily oral care routine, but it should in no way replace physically brushing your teeth with a toothbrush twice a day. You must also visit your recommended tandarts Centurion at least twice a year. You may be asking yourself why it is important to visit the tandarts and that you’re certain your teeth is fine. The truth is that, you may not see the problem at first glance.

8 Dental Tips Everyone Should Know – Centurion Dental Care

Our teeth are the all-stars of our smiles, and they complement our facial features, so for help with maintaining healthy teeth why not visit a Centurion dental care and get professional dental care for your whole family. Read through our 8 dental tips that everyone should know about to help improve your dental health.

If you thought you knew everything about brushing teeth, then this article may interest you.
Brushing isn’t simply brushing. When you brush your teeth there is a reaction that occurs that influences your teeth, and when brushing at the wrong times, you may risk damaging it.

Bear these 8 easy teeth brushing tips in mind – Centurion Dental Care

  • No rushing to brush after meals

    The ph levels in our mouth have to maintain the neutral 7.0 to stay healthy, but when the ph level drops, it gives plaque the opportunity to develop. When brushing teeth immediately after eating, the mouth’s ph level is lower and causes erosion. It’s best to wait 30 minutes gap in-between meals.

  • Change your routine

    Your Dentist in Centurion would recommend changing the start point of brushing because as you reach the last part, you may end up being tired or even board and not brush with the same energy as you did at the start. Changing up the way you brush your teeth can even the level of attention you give your entire mouth and better cleaning results.

  • Avoid aggressive brushing

    Some people have the tendency to put lots of pressure on the gums and teeth while brushing, which usually results in strain and damage to the gums.

  • Two-minute brushing

    Don’t be in too much of a hurry when brushing your teeth because the teeth need at least about two minutes of brushing for a proper clean and better results.

  • Brush all your teeth

    Most people brush their front teeth more than the rest of their teeth, but it’s important that all the teeth be brushed especially the inner sides and the rear teeth (molars), to eliminate bacteria.

  • Naturally clean

    You can clean your teeth throughout the day by eating fruit and raw veggies. Fruit and vegetables are not only good for your diet but are also able to naturally clean teeth due to its natural abrasive feel.

  • Don’t forget to floss

    Flossing is a great way to get rid of any loose plaque and bacteria in the hard to reach parts of the teeth.

  • Replace your brush regularly

    It’s important to replace your toothbrush every three to four months to maintain its ability to thoroughly clean your teeth. For only R60.00 purchase a new Curoprox toothbrush at Smiles4All Dental Studio today
