Why Teeth Become Stained

Even with proper dental care, most people will experience some level of dental discolouration. Eventually, your teeth may shift into a not-so-beautiful colour for a variety of reasons:


  • Food and Drink | Do you enjoy a nice morning cup of coffee or tea? How about a glass of soda during lunch? While they may quench your thirst and give you a jolt of energy, these beverages contain intense compounds capable of staining your tooth enamel. Over time, these drinks alter the brilliance of your teeth. Foods, such as tomato sauce or berries, also result in stained tooth enamel.


  • Age | As you age, tooth enamel thins. Eventually, the yellowish inner layer of your tooth, known as dentin, begins to show, which leads to tooth yellowing.


  • Tobacco | With every puff of a cigarette, your teeth are bathed in two stain-causing substances: tar and nicotine. While tar, as you can imagine, is dark, nicotine is clear until it comes in contact with oxygen. After which, it transforms into a yellow substance that stains tooth enamel.


  • Other Causes | Medication side effects, such as from antihistamines or antipsychotics, can cause teeth to darken by several shades. Another common cause is tooth trauma, such as being hit in your mouth. Teeth can respond to injury by producing extra dentin, which darkens teeth brilliance.

The Opalescence Teeth Whitening System

Smile Gallery Dental Clinic remains on the cutting-edge of cosmetic dentistry procedures by utilising the latest teeth whitening system, Opalescence. As a leader in the industry for over 20 years, Opalescence delivers broad spectrum treatment options for minor and major dental whitening.


Unlike other treatments, which only treat the outside of tooth enamel, Opalescence safely eliminates stains from the inside out. The patented formula, containing either hydrogen peroxide or carbide peroxide, delves beyond tooth enamel to alter the molecular structure of deep-rooted stains.


In essence, the oxygen molecules attack stain molecules to release its bond. This gentle, yet potent, technology eliminates the molecular structures of discolouration. The result? Complete stain removal throughout the application area.

In-Chair and At-Home Treatments

Whether you choose an in-chair procedure done by dentists in Box Hill, or the at-home treatment, the process of reclaiming your smile is easy and efficient. The in-chair procedure takes an average of 60 minutes and is the swiftest solution to brightening your teeth.

The Process of In-Chair Whitening:

  • The dentist prepares your teeth by removing any debris and ensuring your teeth are healthy enough for the treatment.


  • The patented gel formula is carefully applied to each tooth. Because of its highly-viscous and sticky texture, the gel stays put and reduces the risk of it migrating to other parts of your mouth.


  • Unlike other whitening treatments, Opalescence doesn’t require UV light activation. Simply sit back, relax and within an hour experience the confidence of brilliantly white teeth.


The at-home treatment kit delivers the same powerful formula, but within a streamlined delivery method. Although final results aren’t as swift as the in-chair procedure, its flexibility and convenience makes it the ideal choice for busy professionals.
