Do your teeth look stained or yellow? Staining and discolouration can occur for many reasons. Teeth discolour naturally as we age, for example, and dietary habits and smoking can lead to an accumulation of stains over time. At Prospect Family Dental we are here to help you to regain the sparkle in your pearly whites.
Teeth whitening is an affordable, fuss-free and non-invasive cosmetic option to brighten your smile quickly and effectively. It is one of the safest methods available to transform your smile without requiring complex, time-consuming dental procedures.
For teeth whitening there are two main options: in-office whitening, and take-home whitening trays. We can provide and offer advice on both treatments.
In-office whitening involves an hour-long appointment where your dentist will carry out the treatment in the dental chair.
Alternatively, our dentists can prepare custom-made whitening trays and bleaching gels for you to apply at home.
(Note: Large fillings and crowns do not bleach in the whitening process, which may lead to a mismatch in colour. Replacement of these restorations may be required after the whitening procedure. Our staff can offer expert advice on this too.)
During your consultation appointment, your Prospect Family Dentist will examine your teeth thoroughly to determine whether teeth whitening is the right option for you. As results vary from person to person, we will then discuss the expected outcomes of treatment, and address any concerns you may have.
