Teeth Whitening

A smile is one of the first things that is noticed. Our teeth whitening services can remove discolouration from your teeth, improving your appearance with a radiant smile of whiter brighter teeth. The treatments are long lasting and completely safe.

Before we begin teeth whitening treatments, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums, and advise on the best treatment plan for you.

Call us today on 03 366 7429 to book your appointment.

What causes discoloured teeth?

Many things can cause your teeth to become discoloured and stained. Aside from natural tooth colour, some things that can cause tooth discolouration include:

Age – as your teeth age, the enamel (or hard outer shell of your tooth) tends to wear down exposing the darker softer dentin underneath.

Smoking – tobacco brings two discolouring agents who stain your teeth, namely, tar and nicotine. Tar is usually dark while nicotine after mixing with oxygen turns yellowish staining the surface of your tooth.

Tea, Coffee, Red Wine – the intense colour pigmentations (known as chromogens) of these drinks are frequently responsible for staining your teeth and hiding your beautiful natural white enamel.

Trauma – after a trauma to your tooth (such as being hit in the teeth), the injured tooth can react by creating more of the darker coloured dentin under your white enamel.

Carbonated & Sports drinks – the acidity in some sports drinks can both damage your enamel as well as stain and discolour your teeth.

Certain Foods – unfortunately some foods (even though they may be very good for your health) may stain your teeth over time. Some of the worse culprits include pasta sauce, curry, balsamic vinegar and berries (such as blueberries, raspberries and cranberries).

Poor tooth hygiene – if you have poor dental hygiene, then you will be allowing cumulative build-up of plaque on your teeth while forgoing the whiting agents in toothpaste
