As we age, our teeth tend to become yellow and lose their natural shine. This is caused by many factors, some of which cannot be controlled. One of the easiest ways of regaining your smile’s youthful appearance is through professional teeth whitening.
At Dental FX in Glasgow, we understand that your smile has seen whiter days. This is why, we are able to help our patients whiten their teeth professionally either in the dental chair or in the comfort of their own home, depending on their lifestyle and individual needs. Whiter teeth can make a great difference in your smile and overall appearance.
Common causes of tooth discolouration
Even if you brush and floss your teeth regularly, chances are that you will develop tooth discolouration at some point in your life. There are many factors that many cause your teeth to darken. Some of them are directly under your control, while others are not preventable. Generally, your dental health is determined by genetics beyond your control.
Some people are born with thinner and more sensitive tooth enamel or discoloured teeth. Several medications can also lead to tooth discolouration. Failing to brush and floss your teeth will also lead to tooth decay and yellowing of your teeth. Finally, ageing takes a toll on your teeth as well as consumption of certain foods, including coffee, tea and red wine.
Teeth whitening treatments
After determining the cause of your discolouration, our experienced dentists can suggest suitable treatment options. Over-the-counter whitening agents might help, but professional whitening is safer and more effective. When teeth whitening is not an option because of tooth sensitivity or other reasons, veneers can also brighten your teeth permanently.
We appreciate that people with different lifestyles have different requirements. Keeping this in mind, we offer customised treatment options, which are specifically designed for your needs.
Whitening treatment at our practice can be performed at your own convenience upon scheduling an appointment. This way you can have your teeth brightened by several shades in under an hour. It involves whitening your teeth with prescription-strength hydrogen peroxide and laser technology.
Alternatively, our dentist can provide you with custom-fitted bleaching trays that will help you whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own house.
