Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening can really enhance your smile.

Tooth colour is a very individual feature. It is affected by many factors such as enamel thickness, complexion and oral health. There is no perfect tooth shade!

What causes discolouration?

  • Plaque: Poor oral hygiene can lead to deposits building up on the teeth.
  • Staining: Coffee, tea, and red wine can stain the enamel.
  • Smoking: Tobacco staining causing brown staining on your teeth.
  • Decay: dental caries can lead to cavities and discolouration.
  • Trauma: An injury or blow to your teeth can cause changes in the tooth blood supply leading to a grey tooth.
  • Erosion: This can cause teeth to appear yellow as enamel is thinner.
  • Age can lead to a gradual dulling of the teeth.

The first step in whitening your smile is to find the cause of discolouration. Once that has been determined we can provide the most appropriate and successful treatment to brighten the shade of your teeth.
