Spring Clean Your Smile, Bye Bye Stained Teeth
Want to look younger and smile brighter this Chinese New Year? Here’s how to fix stained teeth and get sparkly white teeth in just a few hours.
Chinese New Year is just around the corner and, with it, comes a circuit of visitations. Whether you’re looking forward to it, or are wishing you could escape to a faraway land, the truth is we all want to look our best in front of friends and family. So, every year, we spare no effort in tidying our homes, fixing our hair, and buying new clothes. But study after study has revealed that the first thing people notice really isn’t your svelte figure or well-coordinated outfit.
It’s your smile.
A great smile immediately conveys confidence, and if that great smile features a set of clean, sparkly white teeth, it’ll even make you look younger. Thanks to today’s technology, it just takes a couple of hours to get your teeth to sparkle. But first, to figure out what’s hindering your smile, try this self-examination quiz!
So, what’s blotching your smile?

Now that you know what’s blotching your smile, let’s fix it!
Step 1: Out, white spots, out!
If you have stained teeth with white or brown stains from fluorosis, you’ll first need to get them removed. If you don’t, skip to Step 2.
This form of enamel discolouration can only be treated with a stain removal process (unless you’re thinking of covering them up with veneers, which is a more invasive procedure). At i.Dental, white or brown spots are removed with SmileBrite Stain Removal Polishing. First, the dentist assesses your condition and orders regular polishing and scaling to prep your teeth. On your next visit, a special microabrasion gel is applied to your teeth, which are then polished to perfection. Voila, you have spotless teeth! For best results, stain removal polishing is best paired with dental whitening (see Step 2) for an overall sparkly smile.
Step 2: Say hello to instant sparkle
While only those of us who suffer from spots need stain removal polishing, everyone could do with some dental whitening from time to time, because our teeth naturally turn yellow even if we steer clear of coffee and cigarettes.
Chairside dental whitening conducted by a dentist is perhaps the safest and most effective way of putting the sparkle back in your smile. Your dentist can access your condition and recommend the most suitable treatment option, using either professional whitening systems or laser-assisted procedures. At i.Dental, dental whitening produces visible results — even up to eight shades whiter — in just one session, so you’re still in time to spring clean your smile for Chinese New Year.
