If you have extrinsic discoloration/staining, start by trying a stain-removing toothpaste for a couple of weeks. Going for a stain-removing electric toothbrush can make a big difference here, too. Staining can also be removed during a professional teeth cleaning. If you have intrinsic yellowing, no amount of stain-removing toothpaste can lighten the inner color of the tooth. You’ll need to whiten your teeth using a bleaching gel that is held up against the teeth (but don’t run out to buy whitening strips quite yet!).
Teeth whitening is an extremely safe and effective solution for patients with stained or discoloured teeth. It makes your teeth white by using hydrogen peroxide to release oxygen free radicals that remove stain molecules deep within the tooth. This is now our most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment – and for good reason too. We all dream of that perfect Hollywood smile but brilliantly white teeth aren’t just for the rich and famous. At The Smile Practice in Oxford and Didcot, we offer teeth whitening solutions that are safe, fast and affordable whilst giving fantastic long lasting results. We carry both Enlighten and Boutique kits at our Oxford & Didcot practices – two of the industry leaders in the home teeth whitening market. In just a matter of days, you’ll start to see brighter, whiter teeth – with results potentially lasting many years.

White teeths guide. Do you want to maintain healthy teeth and gums? Here are a few advices: Baking Soda & Lemon: Mix a tablespoon of toothpaste, a pinch of salt, a bit of baking soda, and 4-5 drops of lemon juice in a bowl. Brush your teeth with this mixture for 4-5 minutes. You’ll see the difference after just one use. Use this method every other week. While all sweetened drinks are bad for teeth, some energy and sports drinks may be worse, according to one study in General Dentistry. Researchers found that these drinks — as well as bottled lemonade — may erode tooth enamel after long-term use. The result is thin, translucent, discolored teeth. To prevent tooth erosion: Don’t sit and sip these drinks for a long time. Rinse your mouth with water when you finish drinking.
