A quick, safe and easy way to freshen up your smile is to whiten your teeth. Professional teeth whitening is, by far, one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments around. It is also quite affordable and non-invasive, and within a short time, you’ll be smiling with more confidence when you’re posing for a selfie!
What causes stained or discoloured teeth?
At Complete Dental Works, our teeth whitening specialists will diagnose and assess the cause of your tooth discolouration, and then recommend a teeth whitening treatment plan designed to give you the best results.
Tooth discolouration can be the result of a number of factors including:
- Foods and beverages that stain – these include tea, coffee, red wine and foods that contain colouring agents
- Certain medications
- Oral trauma
- Poor oral care and hygiene
Will teeth whitening treatment work for you?
Teeth whitening isn’t the same for everyone, and results will vary. If you have intrinsic staining – within the inner layer of your teeth – it can be more difficult. It may require a stronger bleaching agent or more whitening sessions to remove these types of stains. Intrinsic staining may be the result of certain medications or health-related conditions. For severe intrinsic stains that can’t be removed, crowns and veneers may be the only dental solutions.
For extrinsic tooth stains – on top of tooth enamel – brightening your smile is a lot easier. You can expect far better results with teeth whitening treatment because extrinsic stains are usually superficial, and often the result of consuming foods and beverages that stain. Extrinsic stains can even be removed to an extent via a regular clean & polish at your next dental check up.
Take-home teeth whitening kits from Complete Dental Works
At Complete Dental Works, we have professional take-home teeth whitening kits that will remove stains from the pores of your teeth, thus lightening the overall colour of your teeth for a brighter, whiter appearance.
For your take-home whitening treatment, we fabricate customised mouth trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. You simply take these home, and after applying whitening gel to the trays, you wear them for a specified time each day over a period of up to 14 days.
