- Smoking and the use of tobacco, whether it is being smoked or chewed, can cause teeth to discolour.

In office teeth whitening
This procedure is called chair side bleaching and takes place at the dentist. It usually requires only one office visit.
A protective gel will be applied to your gums, followed by a bleaching agent that will be applied to your teeth. Thereafter, a special light may be used to release oxygen.
The stains on your teeth are then cleared, allowing the dentin to become whiter and resulting in a whiter smile.
The home whitening kit
The Home Whitening Kit can be used at home over a period of time.
A whitening gel is applied onto trays that are made according to the shape of your teeth. These trays are then fitted onto your teeth for 30 minutes a day for about 3 to 4 weeks.
The whitening gel gradually whitens your teeth’s enamel during this time frame.
How long will my teeth stay whiter?
Teeth whitening isn’t everlasting. It can last between six months to a few years, depending on how regularly you maintain and care for your teeth.
How can I look after my teeth once they have been whitened?
- Cut down on foods and beverages that contain too much sugar and can stain your teeth.
- Avoid smoking.
- Brush and floss your teeth at least twice day.
- Visit the dentist regularly.

Know Everything About Teeth Whitening.
The procedure of teeth whitening helps to lighten the colour of a tooth. Teeth whitening can be done by changing the intrinsic colour or by controlling the external stains. The chemical deprivation of chromogens inside or on the periphery of your teeth is known as bleaching. Hydrogen peroxide is the active ingredient which is commonly used in teeth whitening products and is delivered as either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is similar to carbamide peroxide because it is secreted when the stable complex comes in contact with water.
When it gets diffused into your teeth, hydrogen peroxide works as an oxidising agent and breaks down to make unstable free radicals.
There are various products offered in the market to remove stains. However, to make teeth whitening successful for you, you need to consult an expert dental professional who will diagnose the type, intensity and location of your teeth discoloration.
