White Teeth and Healthy Gums

Teeth look yellow when the white enamel is worn down, causing it to become translucent. The weaker the enamel, the more the yellow of the Denton’s beneath colours the tooth. Another way your teeth lose their whiteness is through regular contact with substances that cause surface stains, such as coffee and tobacco. Whitening pastes have a higher abrasive quality which gently wears away surface stains.

Only two-thirds of your teeth are visible. The rest are hidden inside your gums. Gums need just as much attention as teeth in your oral health care regime as plaque left of teeth and gums causes tooth decay. Don’t forget to brush, floss and use mouthwash two to three times a day!
