Teeth whitening treatments ‘remove caffeine stains’
Teeth whitening treatments are a good way of getting rid of stains caused by food and drink, it has been claimed.
Dr Andrew Weil told the Vancouver Sun newspaper that any food or drink that can stain clothes, such as red wine, curry and coffee, can make marks on the consumer’s teeth.
He suggested that people rinse their mouth with water after eating or drinking and visiting their dentist for professional teeth cleaning treatments.
Beyond this, teeth whitening can have effective results, added Dr Weil, claiming that even do-it-yourself kits can "do a pretty good job".
"Your dentist can bleach your teeth in the office with professional products, sometimes augmented with laser light," he continued, claiming that this option can be more expensive but brighter, whiter teeth can be achieved in as little as two sessions.
The British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry claims that whitening toothpastes categorically do not whiten teeth and that any noticeableimprovements from the products are only short-term.Join this Discussion
