A bright white smile improves your appearance and boosts your confidence, that’s why teeth whitening treatments are one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry services.
Dental treatment for restoring damaged teeth
At Smile Factory Medical Center, we know that a healthy smile is invaluable for your self-esteem and your general well being. Teeth whitening is a small step towards making you feel and look better about yourself.
Whether you’ve been suffering with discoloured or dull teeth for years or have decided you want to stand out and smile openly at an upcoming social event, we offer safe, effective and proven teeth whitening techniques to help you on your way.
Teeth can change in colour for many reasons. These include:
- Age – a natural change after years of wear and tear and staining.
- Smoking – this can yellow the teeth and cause gum problems.
- Food and drink – some foodstuffs such as coffee and red wine may alter the colour of your external enamel
- Internal discolouration – this can be for a number of reasons such as trauma to a tooth or teeth causing internal bleeding or due to reasons from your childhood.
While it is essential to maintain a good oral health care routine to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy, sometimes, the colouring can change regardless of the products you use.
We offer a selection of home whitening treatments to tackle your dull smile and leave you with brighter, whiter teeth.
Home whitening kits are typically applied using a tray. We will take impressions of your teeth so that our laboratory can create your individual trays.
You will be shown how to apply the teeth whitening treatment and given advice on how long you should use it for. Often this means filling the trays with the whitening solution and wearing them overnight. We will follow up your treatment at the practice to ensure you’re getting the desired results.
Teeth whitening is perfectly safe, and we have chosen the most effective products on the market to get your teeth gleaming.
Enhance and improve your smile without undergoing months of uncomfortable treatment and repeated appointments. Veneers are the ideal way to achieve a smile transformation.
Placed on top of your natural teeth, veneers create a straight, white Hollywood smile. They are pain free and permanent solutions to teeth that may have changed with age, have become discoloured, stained or are crooked. They are also used to fill gaps between the teeth.
A dental veneer is made from porcelain or ceramic. In simple terms, it acts like a ‘cap’ or ‘cover’ for your natural teeth. Veneers are primarily used for the front teeth and can immediately change your smile once applied.
If you choose to proceed with veneers, we will arrange a consultation with one of our cosmetic dentists at Smile Factory Medical Center. They will discuss the treatment with you and help you to choose the best shade for your new set of veneers.
During this initial consultation, the dentist may take pictures of your teeth as well as taking impressions. These impressions will help our laboratory create your individual veneers.
Veneers are bonded directly to your teeth and can last for up to 15 years. Before we carry out this final stage of treatment however, your natural teeth will need to be prepared. The dentist will remove the top layer of enamel from the natural teeth so that the veneer can be permanently affixed into place.
As well as improving your smile, veneers offer the following benefits:
- Hard wearing
- Easy to care for
- Transform a dull and discoloured smile
