Stained teeth

having problems with stained teeth

Staining on teeth can be internal or external. Internal staining is the ‘natural’ way your teeth were formed. Some antibiotics and elements in the water from childhood could have caused this staining. Bleaching (whitening) of your teeth could reduce the staining. In severe cases you might need veneers or crowns to cover the staining. External staining is caused by things like smoking, tea and red wine. These stains can usually be removed by our dental hygienist.

Teeth that have gradually darkened over time respond very well to bleaching (tooth whitening). Please arrange a consultation at the Practice to discuss which option is best suited for you.
