Stained, discoloured teeth are never as attractive as white teeth, even as they are sometimes in quite good health. These dental stains can be caused by foods and beverages like coffee, by smoking, by neglecting good dental hygiene, or simply because discoloured teeth are common in the individual’s family. There are several modern methods available to your dentist for removing, or at least reducing the discoursed stains. These include:
This uses bleaching gel to penetrate and whiten the teeth. The gel technique requires a barrier to prevent the gel from touching the sensitive gums, but is quite effective. It does require periodic reapplication, but patients can reliably have 6 months to perhaps a year worth of well whitened teeth.
At Grace Dental Clinic Camden residents can arrange to have regular teeth whitening as they arrange their regular bi-annual appointment.
At Grace dental we can also arrange kits for home teeth whitening Hoxton Park resident’s use.
Porcelain Veneers Dental Clinic Wetherill Park
Porcelain veneers are a permanent solution to stained/discoloured teeth, and are also useful for other cosmetic dental problems such as slightly misshaped teeth. The technique attaches a thin layer of porcelain over the front of the tooth, which looks healthy and natural and functions normally. Unfortunately, these veneers require part of the underlying natural tooth to be permanently removed. But the results themselves are permanent.
Laser Whitening Dental Clinic Miller
Laser whitening uses hydrogen peroxide to lighten teeth, with the laser acting as a catalyst to speed up the procedure. This allows for a fairly quick treatment, which patients prefer.
Some people show sensitivity to the laser light used in this technique, but for the most part it has even less problems than gel lightening.
Teeth may need straightening as well as colour whitening. Talk to your orthodontist/dentist about braces or invisalign, and be one huge step closer to a perfect smile.
