It’s such a lovely feeling when we can relax about our smile, confident that the gap that has plagued us, or the yellowing, stained teeth that has spoiled many a selfie, is happily relegated to our darkest memories. Feeling confident about our healthy, sparkling smile is just an appointment away.
As well as the aesthetic side of things, crooked teeth can also make it very difficult to keep your teeth and gums clean because its nigh on impossible to brush in-between. This can cause a lasting and damaging impact on our health, leading to gum disease and tooth loss.
If there was a magic wand we’d use it to remove the embarrassment caused by discoloured teeth. Many people struggle for years, decades sometimes, because they feel nothing can be done, or because they believe it’s not important enough to ‘bother the dentist with’. And yet experience has shown that when we’re self-conscious about our smile it has a massive impact on our life. Life doesn’t need to be this way. But we would say that wouldn’t we?
There are many solutions to consider so call to make your consultation appointment and speak to a specialist about the options they’d suggest to give you the best results possible.
What causes discoloured teeth?
Sometimes this is caused over time by our daily habits – things like drinking tea, coffee or red wine, or eating strongly spiced foods, and finally smoking. Other times the causes are completely unrelated to our habits and are beyond our control. Whatever the reason, you have absolutely nothing to lose by speaking to our skilled dentists who have the experience to understand what solution is best for you.
Solutions to discoloured teeth
Dependent upon what is causing the discolouration, and what your individual concerns are, there are several different solutions for you to discuss with your dentist. These might include:
Replacing old metal fillings (amalgam)
Specialist Hygienist services
Veneers or crowns
If you’re looking for award winning Teeth Whitening look no further. Using the award winning Enlighten Teeth Whitening System you can feel confident about a guaranteed result and a smile you’ll be delighted with.
The approach we take is extremely gentle. All surface staining, and even deeper stains, are gradually lifted to leave you with fantastic results that last indefinitely (subject to a very simple at home maintenance programme).
Included in your treatment is a complete assessment and consultation – this is necessary before starting your whitening treatment because not everyone is suitable. At the first appointment accurate impressions are taken to produce brilliantly fitting trays (rather like a mouth-guard), this ensures the protection of your gums and a concentrated application of the whitening gel to your teeth.
Following a 2 week period of ‘at home’ whitening treatments there is a final 40 minute specialist session in the surgery. This boosts the whitening effect and guarantees you’ll feel thrilled with the results.
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone’s self-esteem restored through feeling confident to smile again. Book an appointment today – you have nothing to lose, the sooner you start the sooner you’ll have the smile you can feel proud of.
You don’t have to put up with old dark discoloured fillings anymore. Ever feel embarrassed by the colour of old, dark fillings the solution is just a click away – award winning dentistry can replace these with tooth coloured fillings.
If in the past you’ve had a number of traditional silver fillings (known as amalgam fillings) then you may feel a little conscious about them when you laugh or smile, or perhaps you’ve noticed that they’ve started to discolour the rest of the tooth? Then you may like to consider an excellent alternative which uses a dental resin to carefully match the shade of your tooth.
White fillings are virtually invisible and are incredibly strong and durable, lasting upwards of 5 years. Another fabulous characteristic is the safeguarding of the surrounding tooth – white fillings require minimal removal of your tooth structure.
