As we age, our teeth change colour. Additional factors that contribute to the discolouration of teeth include staining foods and drinks, as well as smoking. One of the most popular ways to enhance your smile and improve the appearance of your teeth is teeth whitening.
At Ace Dental, professional teeth whitening in Camden is a fast and affordable treatment. Our practice offers different teeth whitening options, tailored for each patient. Our experienced cosmetic dentists will examine your teeth and help you decide which method works better for your smile. Whitening treatments can last for years depending on your diet, personal habits and your oral hygiene.
What causes discoloured teeth?
Over time, teeth naturally become discoloured and stained. This happens because the tooth enamel becomes thinner, gradually exposing the inner structure of the teeth. However, certain lifestyle and eating habits can also damage your tooth enamel. For instance, smoking and tobacco use, as well as coffee, red wine and dark-coloured foods, can stain your teeth.
Certain medications are also responsible for tooth discolouration, while genetics are also to blame for some people. Finally, poor oral hygiene is perhaps the number one cause of tooth discolouration. Luckily, professional teeth whitening in Camden can restore the brightness of your teeth.
Our whitening services
Our dental team is skilled in providing a wide variety of teeth whitening options. We specialise in power whitening, but we also provide custom-made home whitening kits. Power whitening takes about an hour and a half at the dental practice, after which your teeth will be several shades lighter. You can choose from different brands including Enlighten and Zoom!. Your dentist will paint the bleaching gel on your teeth being careful to avoid your gums and lips. Then a special light will be positioned against your teeth, activating the bleaching gel.
Home whitening, on the other hand, involves the use of individualised trays that you will have to wear at home for a few hours every day. Results can be seen in as little as two weeks.
Both treatments are safe and very effective. To learn more about them, give us a call and we will book a consultation appointment for you.Back to Blog
