Are you looking for teeth whitening in Cambridge? Stained yellow teeth can have a massive effect on our confidence and the way we feel. If you are looking for something to brighten up your smile, professional teeth whitening is the most cost-effective and straight forward dental treatment available to achieve this.
Teeth whitening can provide fantastic results by lightening the existing shade of your teeth. The treatment itself is completely safe when carried out under professional supervision. There are other whitening options and, depending on the severity of discolouration, it is confusing to know which treatment is best for you. Our dentist will answer these questions for you, and ensure that you have the most suitable treatment for your teeth.
Before attempting teeth whitening, it is important to first find out what is causing them to stain in the first place. There are two types of tooth stains, extrinsic stains and intrinsic stains.
Extrinsic stains are stains on the external surface of the teeth. Some of the most common causes of external stains on the teeth are coffee, tea, red wine and smoking.
Intrinsic stains are stains inside the teeth. Intrinsic stains occur when the inner part of the tooth (called the dentin) gets a yellow tint or turns dark. Common causes are from certain medication we take during tooth development and ageing. Teeth whitening treatment for intrinsic stains is slightly more complex, as some stains may be removed using whitening while others may require crowns and veneers. It’s best to seek expert advice from your dentists who can advise on the recommended treatment.
The most common reason for having yellower teeth is that this is your natural colour. It may just be that you are not happy with this or that your teeth have darkened with age. This too can be dealt with by our dentists using a professional tooth whitening system.
The current cost for teeth whitening in our practice is £375. Come to Burnside Dental Surgery for a personal consultation with one of our dentists to discuss what’s right for you. During your consultation, you will have the chance to ask questions and find out if you want to go ahead with any of our teeth whitening treatments.
