The possibilities of teeth whitening get greater every year. There are now many effective ways of getting back your bright, white smile. With varying effectiveness, there are now many products available over the counter that can help to maintain white teeth or remove unsightly stains and blemishes. While these can be effective to some degree as a preventative measure, your City of Leeds dentist will be able to offer you the most effective solutions.
Several new products, for both at the dentist and at home, are now available to help with teeth whitening. Zoom teeth whitening is a gel that is applied directly to the teeth and bleaches the enamel and dentin to a white colour, in the process hiding any stains or discolouration. Enlighten teeth whitening is also able to restore the whiteness of your teeth, so your smile shines bright.
In more serious instances of discoloured teeth you may be interested in veneers. These involve the removal of a layer of enamel, on top very fine slices of porcelain are then placed over the top. Your teeth will then have the bright, white of porcelain. This procedure is generally only recommended when your teeth are discoloured beyond repair.
Speak to you dentist about exactly which of the many products available would be right for your needs. Alongside these treatments it is advised that you limit coffee, wine, smoking and other staining activities in order to reduce the need for whitening in the future.
