There are many elements that cause the teeth to become stained or discoloured, many of which are controllable. These elements include caffeine, soft drinks, smoking, tobacco and ageing.
While some of these simply cannot be avoided (such as age or medications), mostly discolouration comes down to what we choose to put in our mouths. Tobacco is a major cause of not only tooth discolouration, but of many other dental issues including oral cancer! It is important for the health of your mouth to avoid smoking or chewing tobacco.
At Anthony Spink Dental Suite, we provide Zoom! teeth whitening to whiten your smile within one hour. This is a safe whitening gel that contains a bleaching agent which is only activated by a special light. During this treatment our dentists will always make sure your soft tissues are absolutely safe throughout.
Once you have decided you would like a whiter smile and one of our esteemed dentists have walked you through our process and all aspects of your chosen procedure, we will prepare your lips and gums by covering them so that only your teeth are exposed. After this is complete we will apply the Zoom! whitening gel to your teeth which is used together with the specialised Zoom! light.
The gel is applied for a total of four 15 minute sessions, which in total takes just 60 minutes.
At Anthony Spink Dental Suite, we understand that not everyone has time for an in-office whitening visit, which is why we also offer our take-home whitening trays. These are customised to your smile for total comfort and your dentist will give you directions on how to use it, how much to use and the best durations of use during your appointment.
The results you achieve with our Zoom! in-office tooth whitening treatment can last years with proper maintenance. Simply avoid foods or drinks that easily discolour teeth and abstain from smoking or chewing tobacco. Keeping a good oral health routine by brushing twice daily and flossing before sleep will also help ensure your teeth remain brighter for longer.

Teeth Whitening FAQs
No. The whitening agent is not meant to damage your tooth enamel and if done in a professional and controlled environment, there are little or no side effects to your teeth.
You should try to avoid teeth staining foods for the first day after you have the whitening procedure done. An easy way to think about it is to consider anything that will stain a white cloth as dangerous for your teeth. Try and eat white foods like cauliflower, pasta, bread and sweet potatoes.
If you are getting married or are considering whitening your teeth for another big occasion, we would recommend that you do at least three weeks prior to the event. If you have already whitened your teeth and would like a touch up, a good option would be to pay us a visit a week before.
