Fed Up With Discoloured Teeth?
Everyone wants a healthy smile, but with a number of factors that contribute to the yellowing and darkening of teeth, this can be difficult to maintain.
Although this is often a cosmetic problem, both lifestyle and health factors can influence the luminosity of your teeth. Tobaccos use and certain foods and drink such as coffee are lifestyle habits that cause teeth discolouration.
Additionally, poor dental hygiene, disease, age and medication are health factors that cause discolouration, and can only be addressed by treating the root of the problem first.
No matter the cause, our team at Doonan Dental are fully equipped to treat you and restore your gorgeous smile!

Teeth Whitening FAQs
All teeth whitening processes in today’s market rely on an active ingredient of hydrogen peroxide.
A breakdown of hydrogen peroxide results in the release of water, hydrogen ions and bleaching factors (molecular oxygen, oxygen ions and free radicals).
Therefore, predictable and effective teeth whitening is dependent upon the ability of bleaching factors to penetrate deeply into the micro structure of teeth.
Dentists commonly find that a single visit in-chair and power bleaching of ALL TYPES has a high incidence of unpredictability.
This is because of the inability of the bleaching factors to penetrate into the deeper parts of the tooth.
All in-chair treatment systems will have unpredictable results depending on the permeability of a patient’s tooth structure.
Another factor of teeth bleaching is the accuracy of the tray fit. Poorly fitting trays will result in mediocre results. Both saliva and the fluid that exudes from between your gums and teeth (crevicular fluid) contain peroxidase enzymes that naturally destroy the peroxide on contact.
The microstructure of younger teeth is much more permeable to bleaching factors than that of older teeth. So, generally speaking, younger teeth can get very white very rapidly.
Whitening is probably most effective at about age 14. Older teeth can still be whitened considerably but more attention to technique, and often more time, is required to produce the desired result.
The main bleaching components are hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Carbamide peroxide breaks down into hydrogen peroxide and urea. About one third of carbamide peroxide is released as hydrogen peroxide.
Hyrdogen peroxide is found in all body cells as an endogenous metabolite (meaning that it is produced naturally by the body itself). The adult human body produces about 650mg of hydrogen peroxide per day.
Using 16% carbamide peroxide in bleaching trays will result in you placing about 6.5mg of peroxide in a set of upper and lower trays. This means that, during cellular metabolism, our bodies produce about 100 times more peroxides per day than are placed in standard bleaching trays.
Saliva can counter teeth whitening as it contains catalase and peroxidases that rapidly break down any hydrogen peroxide released in the mouth during bleaching. Salivary and sulcular fluid peroxidases are capable of destroying 29mg of peroxide every minute.
There are two commonly reported side effects of teeth whitening treatments: Sensitive teeth and gum irritation.
Tooth Sensitivity: Typically any sensitivity will be mild and last only a day or two after completion of whitening. During Kor whitening, we place a great emphasis on reducing tooth sensitivity. It is important to ensure that your teeth are not excessively sensitive to cold drinks or foods prior to beginning whitening.
Desensitisers will also be used throughout the whitening process to mitigate any sensitivity. As hard as we may try, approximately one in 100 people will be unable to whiten their teeth because of severe sensitivity.
Gum irritation: This is uncommon during at-home procedures. If it does occur, it is usually of minor discomfort and goes away after a night off from bleaching.
