Whiten your teeth safely at Parrock Dental and Implant Centre

If you have stained or discoloured teeth, tooth whitening can benefit your smile. Teeth can become stained for a number of reasons including frequent drinking of coffee or red wine, while smoking can also make your teeth look yellow and stained. These are known as external stains.

Internal stains are usually the result of aging or ingesting excessive fluoride of certain medications as a child. There can also be medical reasons behind your stained teeth, so a dentist will be able to assess this and discuss how you would like your teeth to look.

Tooth whitening works by using an active ingredient, either hydrogen peroxide, or carbamide peroxide. When this breaks down, it reacts with the oxygen and gets into the enamel, which makes the tooth colour lighter.

At Parrock Dental and Implant Centre, we offer our patients home tooth whitening. This uses a specially formulated gel along with custom trays which are fitted over your teeth. You wear these at night and over time the whitening effects will start to show, so you will be able to enjoy a brighter and whiter smile.

Lead cosmetic dentist Dr Rik Trivedi can assess your smile and determine the causes behind why your teeth are stained. As a member of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry he can help you to whiten your teeth safely and give you the teeth whitening results you’re looking for.

To extend your tooth whitening results, consider using whitening toothpaste which is effective at removing staining and improving the overall appearance of your teeth.
