At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham we have an extensive cosmetic dentistry menu, designed to give you the smile of your dreams. A beautiful smile can have a serious positive impact on your self-esteem, boosting your confidence and improving your relationships with others.
A staggering 70% of UK adults are so unhappy with their current smile that they are reluctant to show it off in photographs. At our Farnham clinic we believe that everybody deserves a smile to be proud of, and cosmetic dentistry offers a wealth of options large and small designed to help you achieve just that.
One of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening, and it’s not hard to understand why. Most of us would like a beautifully bright, white smile, but lifestyle factors often get in the way. Whilst poor dental hygiene leads to discolouration and staining of the teeth with plaque, even those with an excellent oral care routine may be dismayed to find that their teeth have developed yellow or brown staining.
Teeth are stained by drinks such as tea, coffee, and red wine, by habits such as cigarette smoking, by some medicines and as a side-effect of some medical conditions. They also have a tendency to lose some of their natural lustre as we get older.
When carried out by a dentist, teeth whitening is an effective and safe way to get rid of these stains. What’s more, it is a quick procedure, which makes it an excellent option either as a standalone treatment or as a complement to another treatment from our extensive cosmetic dentistry menu.
If you are interested in teeth whitening treatment, come into Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham for a consultation with a cosmetic dentist. Teeth whitening treatment is suitable for most people over the age of 18, although it should be postponed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
As with any procedure in cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening should only be carried out on a healthy mouth, so if your dentist discovers you are suffering from gum disease or tooth decay, this will be treated first.
