“Intrinsic whitening” refers to whitening the dentin, or inner part of the tooth, which soaks up hydrogen peroxide gel (also called whitening gel or bleach) and becomes lighter. When peroxide is used to whiten teeth, it produces free radicals which then bind to the darkest pigments in the spaces between enamel cones. The free radicals physically shrink the pigment molecules, which reduces the darkness of the pigment. In addition, making the pigments smaller means they also reflect less light.

Teeth veneers are thin ceramic ‘shells’ placed over your existing teeth and are proven to vastly improve the appearance of your smile. This is a popular treatment choice for many people wanting a smile makeover and is the treatment of choice in many celebrity smile makeovers. Here at the Smile Practice all our porcelain veneers are hand-crafted by a ceramic technician to ensure that you the unique smile of your dreams. The colour, shape and character of every tooth will be discussed with you at your consultation to ensure the end result is just how you want it. If you are considering teeth veneers or want to discuss if they are suitable for you, book your initial consultation at our Didcot or Oxford clinic.

Diet for teeth whitening. Do you want to maintain healthy teeth and gums? Here are a few tricks: Baking Soda & Lemon: Mix a tablespoon of toothpaste, a pinch of salt, a bit of baking soda, and 4-5 drops of lemon juice in a bowl. Brush your teeth with this mixture for 4-5 minutes. You’ll see the difference after just one use. Use this method every other week. You may be able to get rid of superficial stains by yourself. A number of at-home tooth-whitening products — kits, strips, toothpastes, and rinses– may lighten stains. There are even some old-fashioned remedies you can try. Tooth-whitening products available on drugstore shelves use mild bleach to brighten yellow teeth. Toothpastes use abrasives and chemicals to remove surface stains. For deep stains, you may need a dentist’s help.
