How cosmetic treatments can help you to have consistently whiter teeth.
Cleaning your teeth regularly and correctly can help you to have whiter teeth for longer, simply by removing some surface staining. Depending on your eating and drinking habits though, some surface discolouration is likely over time and the inner part of your teeth will also darken as you get older. The odd filling here and there may also spoil an otherwise nice smile.
But all is not lost and here at the Confidental Clinic in Surbiton, our cosmetic dental team will be pleased to help you renew a great looking white smile using some of the cosmetic treatments that we have at our disposal.
If you have an amalgam filling that shows up when you laugh or smile, this can really detract from an otherwise attractive appearance. These can usually be replaced using a tooth-coloured dental filling which is very difficult to distinguish when compared to your natural teeth. This type of filling is also better at preventing the recurrence of decay, as it bonds more closely to the structure of the tooth when compared to amalgam.
Our home teeth whitening kit is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures that we provide. It is safe, effective and fast acting. The results should also last for quite a long time at which point you can decide whether to repeat the treatment or not. This is a much more efficient and effective way of whitening your teeth than the use of a whitening toothpaste or a shop bought whitening kit.
Where teeth are very heavily stained or have received minor damage, the use of dental veneers is another option that is available. This is an excellent way of having great looking teeth, although it does require a more complex procedure than say teeth whitening. Expertly fitted veneers have long-been a favourite with celebrities but are now much more affordable and accessible for everyone.
It is worth mentioning that whilst a teeth whitening procedure will usually produce excellent results, it will not affect the colour of a restoration such as a porcelain veneer or a dental implant. In circumstances such as this, our team will advise on the best course of treatment. For example we will be able to adjust teeth whitening treatments to match existing restorations.
