How to get a snow-white smile

The palette of teeth shades is multifaceted. Natural teeth not only have a yellowish undertone, as is commonly believed, but can also have a grayish, brown or orange tint. However, the most desirable subtone of teeth is definitely light.

The influence of genetics and external factors

Not all patients have snow-white teeth. This is often dictated by genetic factors. The shade of teeth can also be influenced by external factors at the stage of formation of rudiments. For example, if a child under the age of 3 was prescribed tetracycline antibiotics, the teeth will have a specific iridescent shade: from gray and orange to yellowish and brown.

The quality of tap water also affects the shade of teeth. If the amount of fluoride in the water is increased, teeth may have yellowish, brown and white spots. The intensity of the spots varies depending on the saturation of tap water with trace elements.

External factors and hygiene

However, other external factors also affect the shade of teeth. Regular consumption of coffee and cigarette smoking causes darkening of the enamel. A lack of certain vitamins and systemic diseases can also affect the shade of teeth.

In order to maintain the natural light shade of teeth, it is important to follow the rules of regular home cleaning and regularly visit the dentist for professional hygiene procedures. This helps to remove pigmented plaque, which forms a dark film on the teeth. It is also necessary to limit the use of aggressive pigments in food, such as black coffee and black tea.

Teeth whitening

The shade of teeth does not always depend on us. If your teeth genetically have a shade that prevents the existence of your snow—white smile, they can be made lighter - bleached.

It is important to remember that whitening pastes are not able to whiten teeth, but they can cause tooth sensitivity and dullness. The most effective and safe bleaching today is clinical bleaching using a Zoom 4 light bulb.

Preparation and maintenance of a snow-white shade

With proper preparation of teeth using professional hygiene procedures and remineralizing therapy using gels that saturate enamel with calcium (such as R.O.C.S. Medical Minerals and Tooth mousse), and then clinical whitening, you can get the lightest possible shade of enamel without harm to teeth.

To maintain a bright smile, you can use home whitening with individual mouthguards and whitening gel from the Zoom system or ready-made standard mouthguards for home whitening Opalescence.

It is important to remember: only a doctor can prescribe both home and clinical bleaching after an examination.
