Why You Should Whiten Your Teeth

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is something that people do for a variety of reasons. Some are obvious, others are personal, but there’s no one situation that makes teeth whitening the right option for everyone.

At PMD Dental Care, we offer professional teeth whitening in Port Melbourne to help our patients make the most of their smiles. You may want to consider this simple cosmetic procedure if you fit any of the following categories: 

An Upcoming Smile Makeover

Teeth whitening is usually the first step to a smile makeover. In some situations, lightening the colour of your teeth may be a more effective substitute than other types of cosmetic work. Not only that, it’s also an affordable solution to try! When combined with our full menu of aesthetic services, teeth whitening tends to be the foundation that we match options like veneers or bonding against. 

Age (or Coffee) is Catching Up with You

Since our tooth enamel is porous, it naturally accumulates stains from the foods and drinks we consume over time. Some of us see heavier stain than others, especially if we drink a lot of coffee, tea, or red wine. Not only that, our enamel may also look yellower as the years go by. By whitening your teeth, you can get everything brightened in a short amount of time. 

Before Getting Other Dental Work

When we place restorations like dental crowns or bridges, we match them to the teeth on either side, that way everything blends in properly. If you’re wanting to eventually have a brighter smile, your crown or other tooth coloured restoration can’t be bleached later on. It’s best to whiten your smile and match those materials to a lighter colour from the get go.
