Are you looking for teeth whitening East London? Whether you want a confidence boost or just to look your best, teeth whitening remains the most-requested cosmetic dental procedure for many adults. But with increasing demands on time, today’s patients want whitening options that fit their busy lifestyles and want fast results with little or no discomfort.
What Causes Teeth To Be Stained?
Our teeth can become stained or discoloured for many different reasons. It usually occurs in our late 20’s as the enamel (outer layer) of our teeth starts to become thin. Unfortunately, your teeth can also become discoloured due to genetics but may be treated using teeth whitening. There are two types of tooth stains, extrinsic stains and intrinsic stains.
Extrinsic stains are usually caused by your lifestyle or diet. Are you a person that loves drinking coffee, tea or wine? All these are common factors as to why your teeth become discoloured and can even affect those who have the best dental hygiene and those with healthy teeth. The good news is that many of these extrinsic stains are reversible and can be treated using teeth whitening.
Intrinsic stains are stains that affect the inside of our teeth where the teeth become yellow or turn dark. Certain medications that are taken when our teeth are developing cause the discolourment which can be slightly more complex to fix.
When teeth whitening is not available, you may need to resort to invasive dentistry such as crowns and veneers. These treatments are usually more complex, costly and take place over time. Please consult with your dentist first to ensure that you have the correct treatment.
