Tooth whitening is not 100% guaranteed and results can vary from person to person. However, the treatment is generally successful at lightening the teeth by at least two shades.
As we get older our teeth naturally become darker, not helped by diet and other lifestyle habits such as smoking, that add to the overall discolouration of our teeth. Tooth whitening can lighten the natural shade of the teeth and give you back a fresh and healthy looking smile.
We offer a choice of tooth whitening treatments, one being at-home whitening using specially made trays provided by your dentist. The other being in-chair power whitening carried out by your dentist, hygienist or dental therapist in the practice. If required you can use a combination of both treatments.
Your dentist will assess your needs and discuss the most appropriate option for you.
A veneer is a thin, custom-made layer of a dental material designed to fit over the front of a prepared tooth to restore or improve the aesthetics of the tooth. Veneers are made of porcelain or composite materials which are then coloured to match the existing shade of the other teeth. Developed in the early 1980s with continual developments in porcelain and resin technology veneers can now be made as thin as 0.2mm.
Veneers are designed to make teeth look natural and healthy, and being very thin and held in place by a special strong bond, very minimal preparation of the tooth is required.
Teeth that have become discoloured, crooked or worn, chipped or damaged through an accident or decay can be rejuvenated simply and quickly. Veneers are one of the most durable, aesthetic and reliable forms of dental restorations available and can last for many years. Veneers can also enhance the appearance of existing crowns and bridges without the need for anaesthetic or drilling.
