Discolouration of teeth is often a natural occurrence, although food and drink consumption undoubtedly play a part. It is also common, given the nation’s love for coffee, tea and wine.
Nearly half of the population are unhappy with their smile, with 64% putting this down to discoloured teeth.
Staining can be defined as intrinsic – when the inner layer of the tooth (the dentine) darkens, or extrinsic – when the enamel is stained.
There are numerous types of stains; some are genetic, environmental or pharmacological in nature, but the most common cause are surface stains on the enamel down to red wine, tea, coffee, various foods and smoking.
Professional whitening is the only way to actually change the colour of teeth. It is a safe and effective way to improve your appearance, boost self-confidence and appear more youthful.
Developments in teeth whitening technology means the process has become easy to do with minimal fuss or mess. The way whitening works is there is a chemical reaction that breaks apart the carbon bonds that create yellow stains. Once the bonds are broken, they no longer reflect a yellow shade.
At Greenwich Dental Heath, we will always carry out a thorough examination to ensure there are no risks or concerns about your oral health before we carry out teeth whitening treatment.
We will arrange a bespoke tray for you to wear overnight with specially formulated whitening gels for two weeks. For very stubborn discoloration, you may also require an appointment with us for the final 40 minutes of treatment.
