Do you have discoloured or stained teeth that make you feel self-conscious about smiling?
Teeth naturally yellow and discolour over time, but smoking and some food and beverages can also cause hard-to-shift stains. Teeth can also be discoloured with speckled enamel, white banding or coloured spots, and can be stained during development by tetracycline, a broad-spectrum antibiotic.
At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic our experienced and friendly dentists will listen to your concerns about the colour of your teeth, assess your needs and tailor your teeth-whitening treatment to give you a natural-looking, brighter smile.
The teeth-whitening agent we use is carbamide peroxide. This is applied as a gel to mouth trays that are custom made to fit around your teeth precisely. The carbamide peroxide penetrates the enamel of your teeth and oxidises the pigment bonds in the dentine, which brightens your teeth without damaging them. Our teeth whitening treatment is monitored throughout by your dentist to ensure the process is safe and effective.
