The fastest way to look younger, experts say is to whiten your smile. Yellowing teeth is one of the most obvious signs of aging. Luckily, it’s also the one easily fixed with teeth whitening.

Causes of stained teeth

he natural colour of people’s teeth varies from white to yellow, with every shade in between. All teeth contain red and grey colours, and the grey colours increase with age.

Teeth are made up of three layers: tough outer enamel, softer dentine, and the inner pulp. As you get older, the enamel thins through wear and tear, and the darker dentine layer can begin to show through. The dentine structure also changes as it takes up more minerals from the pulp. These two processes can make older teeth appear yellow.

Diet and lifestyle

Then there are the surface stains, caused by diet and lifestyle — tea, coffee and smoking are three of the biggest culprits. Regular visits to our dental hygienist will counteract surface staining.

Can I get these results at home?

Yes you can. Home bleaching is just as effective as in-the-chair teeth whitening and costs much less. Once you have the mould, it’s yours for good so you can continually top up with a teeth whitening agent every few years or when you think you need it.
