Are you considering teeth whitening to achieve whiter teeth and a perfect smile?

Stained or discoloured teeth are a major problem for many people. We all start out with beautiful, white teeth but over time, our teeth begin to discolour as a result of many factors. These factors include tea or coffee drinking, food especially curries and nicotine stains as a result of smoking.

Another factor is that of genetics: some people do find that their teeth are prone to staining more than others. Others notice that their teeth start to yellow or darken with age.

We may think of staining on just one level but there are in fact, 3 levels of stains:

1. Surface level or superficial stains: these can be removed using a good whitening toothpaste or via deep cleaning by your dentist.

2. Deep rooted stains: these are stains which, over time, have worked their way into the structure of the teeth. Often caused by eating, drinking and smoking. These cannot be removed by a scale and polish or whitening toothpaste and so require a professional approach of either teeth whitening treatment or cosmetic dentistry.

3. Developmental or inherited stains: these are largely genetic in origin. For example, if someone has been taking a course of tetracycline antibiotics during tooth development then these can, unfortunately, result in greyish looking teeth.

Some teeth whitening treatments can help but often the only solution is to have cosmetic bonding or a dental veneer.

Whatever the reasons or level of stain, discoloured teeth are a cause of embarrassment and self-consciousness for many people.

But, if you are one of these people who dread smiling because of the state of your teeth then teeth whitening can help. It can also give you that pearly white smile so often seen on celebrities, models and film stars.

Far Headingley Dental Care provides three teeth whitening options:

In Surgery Teeth Whitening

The latest technique of in-surgery teeth whitening will give a whiter, brighter smile in around an hour. The technique is painless with no injections and no damage to the teeth or gums. The new and innovative in-surgery teeth whitening is used to activate a special whitening gel placed on the teeth. The results can be seen straight away so that you leave the surgery with a more confident and whiter smile. In-surgery teeth whitening is available with as part of our Combination Teeth Whitening package.

This quick and easy method for whitening your smile is ideal if you want to improve your image and confidence before that important job interview, your wedding day or any other important event that you would like to look your best for.

You can relax and enjoy a DVD with our special RIMAX Virtual Vision DVD goggles whilst having your in-surgery teeth whitening at Leeds dentist, Far Headingley Dental Care.

Home Teeth Whitening

An alternative to in-surgery teeth whitening is home teeth whitening where you apply a whitening gel into a gum shield and wear it overnight for 4-5 nights. This is a cheaper alternative to in-surgery teeth whitening but takes longer to achieve results.

Combination Teeth Whitening

For the ultimate teeth whitening results we recommened a comination of home and in surgery teeth whitening. Achieve an instant whiter smile in surgery with one of our dentists and then manage and maintain your whiter teeth and smile at home with personalised teeth whitening trays and whitening agent.
