Answer:

Dear Peter,

You can easily whiten your teeth. You should know that right after a bleaching, then your teeth more susceptible to dyes in food and drinks, but only for a limited time. It is not harmful to the the teeth to get them bleached a couple of times.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Answer:

Dear Ira,

It is not something I know. Only in two days after surgery, one must keep themselves from all that is hot, both food and drink. The heat causes the your blood vessels to expand, which provides increased risk that the wound starts to bleed again. Also one must keep calm after an operation, not to start a bleeding.

Hope you can use my answer.

Yellow teeth with age

Question:

I am a man of 43 years old, and is the last few years, started to get yellow teeth. I don't smoke and drink 3-4 cups of coffee a day.

My wife has recommended me to buy a tandblegningssæt for 499 crowns. But I do not feel comfortable with the process myself.

What do you recommend I should do to get whiter teeth?

Answer:

Dear Peder

It is quite natural that the teeth become gulere with age. It may partly be due to the coffee, but it can easily be removed by the annual teeth cleaning at the dentist or the hygienist. I think it would be a good idea to get your teeth assessed by a dentist before they are bleached. Also seems that it is much better to get them bleached professionally, than to begin to experiment yourself.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
