A beautiful smile is always attractive. But even the perfectly bright smile gets duller with age.
External teeth discolouration occurs as a result of poor personal dental hygiene, smoking, the consumption of coloured and acidic drinks, such as coffee, red wine, black tea, or soft drinks with artificial colourants, or the use of iron and chlorhexidine preparations due to some diseases and the use of antibiotics.
Internal teeth discolourations will develop when pigmented substances penetrate into hard dental tissues or when a tooth is dead. Some factors that lead to internal dental discolouration may also influence the development of tissues in non-erupted teeth. Such factors include inherited diseases, an excessive exposure to fluoride, or the use of tetracycline. This can also occur as a result of trauma, caries, amalgams, ageing and long-term smoking.
Teeth whitening restores the enamel’s natural color and protects it from future hazards. It removes dark spots from the dental surface, making teeth look genuine and healthy. The latest technologies make whitening fast, painless and safe, and allow to choose the most effective and comfortable option for you.
When discolouration develops, teeth whitening can help to restore a white smile – the results are immediate, effective and will last for a long period of time.
Is a teeth whitening procedure suitable for everyone?
These procedures are not recommended for patients with a thin enamel layer, or for patients that have very sensitive teeth, pregnant women and under-age individuals.
It is recommended to have your teeth fixed and cleaned before the teeth whitening procedure.
Teeth whitening procedures are not recommended for patients with severely worn teeth or with very sensitive teeth.
It should be noted that only the colour of natural teeth will change during a teeth whitening procedure, and the whitening will not affect fillings and crowns.
