What causes teeth to discolour?
Sometimes our smiles can reveal a side of us we’d rather keep hidden, such as stained and discoloured teeth. The most common culprits are smoking and drinking red wine, tea or coffee. Over time these can lead to the natural whiteness of your teeth fading and becoming stained and yellowed. Of the many options available, Eastside Gardens Dental Centre dentists only offer whitening techniques that have been tried and tested. Before we recommend a course of action, we assess your suitability and the cause of the staining, which will help us determine the most effective treatment for you.
Whichever method you choose, our dentist will want to check your teeth are strong and healthy beforehand as any cavities or signs of other dental diseases will need to be treated prior to whitening. This checkup is also an opportunity for our dentist to assess how well whitening will work for you as everybody’s teeth react slightly differently. The effects can depend on the type of staining and the natural colour of your teeth. If you have any porcelain crowns or veneers, or any areas that have been bonded with composite resin then these will not change color during this treatment. This does mean that you may need to budget for replacing these restorations once you have finished whitening your teeth.

Our whitening services are simple, safe and designed to help you to relax. During the procedure, we’ll apply a gel to your teeth and apply the Philips ZOOM light for 15 minutes, all while you relax. By repeating this experience two or three more times, we can achieve your desired results in one hour. We also have implemented the latest research on whitening, which means we can minimise the sensitivity that can sometimes occur after whitening.
