Teeth whitening in Sydney for a beautiful, brighter smile
Many factors can affect the aesthetics of your smile and how you feel about having your teeth on show. Discoloured teeth are one of the most commonly faced cosmetic dentistry issues at your dentist Sydney and the easiest to address to help brighten up your smile.
Teeth whitening for extrinsic stains
There are two types of teeth staining: extrinsic staining and intrinsic staining. Extrinsic staining is the most common type of tooth staining which can be found in varying degrees. It is the staining of the surface of the tooth and is caused by many different issues. Poor oral hygiene is, unfortunately, the main cause of tooth staining. Brushing and flossing your teeth well after meal times using a good, teeth-whitening toothpaste and mouthwash can help keep your tooth enamel healthy and white.
Unfortunately, your lifestyle choices, for example, smoking and using other tobacco products, can cause your teeth to become yellow or brown and over time this is difficult to remove. Other factors such as food and drink can affect the colour of your teeth too. Drinks such as red wine and cola can reduce the whiteness of your teeth. These are extrinsic stains and with good dental hygiene and well-researched teeth-whitening treatments, here at your dentist Sydney, these can be removed, restoring the whiteness of your teeth. Speak to us at Spa Dental Sydney to find out about the POLA teeth whitening system and how you can either whiten your teeth here at our dental clinic or in the comfort of your own home.
Veneers for improving the aesthetics of your smile
Intrinsic staining involves the dentine of your teeth which is underneath the enamel. Intrinsic staining can be caused by several different factors and these include certain medications, such as antibiotics like tetracycline. Intrinsic staining can occur as a result of an accident or injury where you have had trauma to your mouth and the tooth has become bruised from the inside. It can also be a result of underlying health conditions and may occur naturally over time with age. Intrinsic staining cannot be removed using teeth whitening toothpastes or products. However, here, at your dentist Sydney, we have professional treatments available to address staining and discolouration of your teeth whilst also being able to address any other aesthetic issues you may have.
Veneers at Spa Dental Sydney are a popular choice of cosmetic dentistry for improving the appearance of your smile. These are fine porcelain shells that are designed to cover the surface of your tooth and help mask the imperfections completely. You may choose to have a single veneer to address the appearance of a single tooth which may be affecting your smile or you may choose to have a full set of veneers for a complete smile makeover. If you have a chipped, cracked or broken tooth, are suffering from staining which cannot be removed using teeth-whitening techniques or are unhappy with the shape of your tooth, then you can speak with us at Spa Dental Sydney to find out more about veneers.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
