Whichever way you look at it, we’ve got you covered!
When you’re unhappy with your smile, it can change how you look at the world – and how you feel others look at you. For many people, the colour of their teeth has a big impact on how they feel about their smile. Are you one of them? At Parkstone Dental, as your dentist in Tofield, we’d like to tell you about why your smile may not be as bright as you like – and how teeth whitening can help.
Types of tooth discolouration
While there are many reasons your smile may not be as bright as it used to be, they all fall into two main categories: extrinsic staining and intrinsic discolouration.
Extrinsic Tooth Stains – This type of staining happens from external influences. Most people know that for teeth that have lost their brightness due to smoking and consuming tooth-staining foods like berries, red wine, coffee, and tea, they can have their teeth whitened in the convenience of their home using our take-home kit.
Intrinsic Discolouration – This tooth discolouration is caused by internal influences like fluorosis, root canal treatment, and medicines such as Tetracycline. At Parkstone Dental, we have options to whiten teeth that have been discolored because of these intrinsic influences that affect the colour of the tooth from the inside. We call this technique “deep bleaching.”
Most of us have smiles that could use a boost from teeth whitening. If you’re one, no matter the origin of stains or discoloration, give us a call! We will help you choose which whitening technique is best for you. Now … imagine your dazzling white bright smile – you deserve it!
