Teeth whitening

June 4, 2018 11:08 am

The colour of the teeth depends on the composition, thickness and surface of the tooth enamel and the colour of the dentine. This colour may be affected by causes inside the tooth / intrinsic (e.g. calcium deficiency or some medications) and by environmental / extrinsic causes (e.g. smoking, lack of oral hygiene, consumption of tea, coffee or red wine).

To prevent the darkening of teeth we must maintain a good dental hygiene. This includes visiting the dentist at least twice a year, practising interproximal cleaning, using a good quality toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash. In addition there are several teeth whitening products on the market, however it is necessary to monitor them since many are highly abrasive and can wear out the enamel. As a result, this usually produces dental hypersensitivity, dental pain and may favour the appearance of caries.

The VITIS whitening range has been developed to prevent tooth sensitivity without being abrasive. Both the toothpaste and mouthwash contain hydroxyapatite nanoparticles which fill the irregular surfaces of the enamel creating a smoother and brighter surface, thus making the teeth appear whiter. VITIS whitening is perfect for people who want to use whitening products whilst simultaneously protecting the tooth enamel and preventing tooth sensitivity. It is also recommended used after professional oral cleaning to keep teeth clean and stain-free.
