Who needs teeth whitening?
The first question should be: Do I need teeth whitening?
There's no real hard and fast answer about who 'should' get their teeth whitened. It really just comes down to whether or not you would feel happier and more confident with a whiter, brighter smile. If you've been thinking about your teeth and feeling like they may be stained or yellowing, there's no reason not to give it a go and try the treatment.
Staining can be caused by any number of reasons, from your diet, to smoking, to ageing or dental issues. Whitening tends to work best for stained teeth, but not on teeth that are discoloured from injury or medications. That's why it's so important to talk to your dentist before trying whitening products, as some are better suited than others for your teeth, and your dentist will be able to offer alternative treatments (such as veneers) if whitening options won't work for you.
Are there any negative side effects for teeth whitening?
It's uncommon for anyone to experience negative side effects from teeth whitening. In rare cases, there will be mild tingling or sensitivity during the treatment, and if it becomes uncomfortable you can tell the dentist immediately.
If you're looking at tooth whitening options, talk to your dentist about which one might be best for your teeth.

Natural ways to keep your teeth white
Whether you're simply looking to keep your teeth white for as long as possible by avoiding stains, or if you're looking to maintain a brighter smile in between treatments, there are a few things to keep in mind for your daily habits.
Good Oral Health
The very first step is the most crucial. A healthy smile is more important than a white smile, but your oral health can play a big role in the appearance of your teeth. Issues like plaque build-up and tooth decay can result in discolouration.
We recommend brushing twice a day for two minutes using a fluoride toothpaste (fluoride should not be used on children’s teeth if they’re under six years old, however) Following this, you should also floss daily to remove food particles that get between teeth.
It’s also important to visit your dentist for check-ups and professional cleans. Many adults need to visit the dentist every six months. However, you should confirm this with your dentist, as check-up frequency will depend on your own personal circumstances.
These simple steps will help maintain your white smile by avoiding the build-up of plaque and issues like tooth decay.
Diet and habits
Your diet plays a major role in stains on your teeth.
Many foods and drinks with strong colours are capable of staining teeth. These include red wine, coffee, curries and blueberries. While you don't need to cut these snacks and drinks out completely, it pays to be aware of their effects and how you might mitigate them. For example, you will be able to drink some liquids such as fizzy pop through a straw to avoid it hitting your teeth directly. Also, once you're finished eating or drinking, try to drink water and even swish it through your mouth to remove debris.
When it comes to stains on teeth, almost nothing can rival cigarettes for discolouration. When exposed to oxygen, nicotine takes a yellow hue, which is why lifelong smokers sometimes have noticeably yellow teeth. The tar in cigarettes can also cause stains, adding a dark tone to your smile. While professional whitening in a dental clinic can improve these stains, they often return soon after if you continue to smoke. In addition to several risks to your oral health (and overall health), smoking can cause some undesirable side effects to your appearance.
Foods that may help whiten teeth
As saliva helps to clean your teeth and avoid stains, any food that helps you create saliva can help with whitening. That's why chewing sugar-free gum can be so beneficial. Crunchy foods such as apples, carrots and other vegetables can also clean your teeth to help keep them white.
Dairy is one food group where most of the products (such as milk, cheese and natural yoghurt) can help keep a white smile. As these foods contain lactic acid and calcium, they can both whiten and strengthen your teeth.
