Discoloured Teeth? What are the treatment options?
A very common problem for people all over the UK is discoloured teeth. The severity of discoloured teeth can vary from person to person and factors such as age, genetics and overall condition of your teeth will also play a big part in how discoloured they may be.
So in today’s blog we’re going to run through a couple of things you may benefit from knowing where it comes to discoloured teeth. If you do have a problem at the moment, then do contact Advanced Dentistry for an initial consultation.
Things that can contribute to discoloured teeth:
Smoking, coffee, tea, alcohol and colas to name a few can all contribute to the discolouration of your teeth. Equally foods with large amounts of ingredients that offer ‘colour’ can also discolour your teeth and give them a dull, yellow look, which is not necessarily going to inspire you to feel confident when you smile.
Treatment of discoloured teeth
In most cases, discoloured teeth can be brought back to life with tooth whitening treatments. However, what we often see here at Advanced Dentistry is that while people have discoloured teeth, they may also benefit from some help with fixing things like chips on their teeth or worn down teeth.
For combination treatments that will resolve discolouration and wear and tear, we can offer composite bonding or porcelain veneers, which enables you to get your pearly whites while improving your overall smile and the condition of your teeth at the same time, as well as a number of other highly skilled treatments.
Why bother with getting everything done at the same time?
Basically your oral health is extremely important. Things like chipped teeth can get worse if left untreated and while discoloured teeth can be fixed easily enough, it’s really a surface level treatment and does not address any more serious problems that you may have.
For example, gum disease is very common with adults so getting this address means you can make sure you don’t lose your teeth.
Having a misaligned bite can change the shape of your face for example, and if your teeth are worn down, they will not get better by whitening alone. They actually need some additional treatment to bring them back to their original condition.
The Advanced Dentistry way…
We truly believe that good aesthetic dentistry is about looking after your oral health and making sure that your teeth and gums are healthy is a big part of that. This is why we offer a holistic approach and never treat any two cases in the same way.
If you have discoloured teeth and want to smile again without feeling self-conscious or embarrassed, do contact us here at Advanced Dentistry for an initial consultation. We will ensure that you get the very best treatment and that any other issues with your oral well-being are addressed at the same time.
