Whitening is the perfect accompaniment to any smile makeover, but it can also make a visible difference on its own. Teeth whitening is a simple, effective and inexpensive cosmetic dental treatment that can enhance your smile in as little as one treatment.
At Smilecraft, we use well-reputed whitening brands such as Enlighten and Zoom!, but we also offer bespoke whitening trays for patients who wish to have their teeth whitened at home. Professional teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile that will boost your self-esteem and help you smile without feeling uncomfortable.
Common causes of yellow and stained teeth
Having stained teeth not only can hamper your ability to express yourself, but can also make you self-conscious of your appearance. Tooth stains manifest themselves as yellow or brown spots that appear throughout the teeth. Main causes behind yellow teeth include certain foods and beverages, especially those with intense colours, such as red wine, soy sauce, tea, coffee, cherries and other berries.
The use of certain medications can also cause yellow and discoloured teeth and so does excessive fluoride. However, the main causes of yellow and stained teeth are poor dental hygiene and ageing. Luckily, most of these discolourations can be removed with professional teeth whitening.
Enlighten Evolution teeth whitening treatment is the only teeth whitening system that will brighten your teeth up to 16 shades easily and safely. This system guarantees that your teeth will reach their ideal colour without being extreme. Enlighten whitening includes both home whitening trays and power whitening and has proven to be very effective and popular with patients.
Zoom! is a teeth whitening treatment that can lighten your tooth enamel by several shades. Zoom! whitening uses hydrogen peroxide to remove persistent stains from your teeth. Your dentist will place the whitening gel directly on your teeth and activate it by positioning the Zoom! light against them. The light will activate the hydrogen peroxide and help penetrate the surface of the teeth.
Home whitening trays at Smilecraft are crafted for each individual patient in order to fit properly in their mouth. Once they are ready, our experienced dentists will show you how to use them along with bleaching gel.
