Tooth whitening with our orthodontist at Winchester Orthodontics

What are the main causes of teeth discolouration?

Teeth discolouration can occur due to many different reasons. These stains derive from what we consume on a daily basis and will impact the natural colour of the teeth. Drinks that have a high sugar content are more likely to affect the teeth; for example, drinking a lot of coffee can leave brown stains. Alongside this, certain lifestyle choices may also affect the colour. For instance, smoking has the potential to discolour the teeth, turning them into an orange shade.


Our teeth whitening treatment performed by our orthodontist Hampshire can ultimately eliminate the harm caused by these factors. The treatment not only improves the aesthetic of teeth but also promotes oral hygiene. Your teeth will appear whiter, and you will have a brighter smile. If this treatment is within your suitability and is of interest to you, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly team at Winchester Orthodontics. Our orthodontist Hampshire can provide many dental treatments for the needs of our patients.


What will the treatment do and consist of?


You must be aware that this treatment will only change the appearance and discolouration of natural teeth. For those who have fillings, veneers or crowns, their prosthetic teeth will not be affected by teeth whitening.


This treatment is suitable for those who are aged 18 and over because any whitening product that contains more than 0.1% hydrogen peroxide is not suitable for those under the age of 18.


At Winchester Orthodontics, our orthodontist Hampshire can provide at-home whitening kits. The process is similar to the Invisalign treatment as a custom-made tray is created. This tray must be worn overnight with the whitening gel placed inside it. This will gradually make your teeth whiter and brighter. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments used by many mainstream celebrities such as Kylie Minogue.


How long does the teeth whitening procedure take?


One of the main benefits of receiving this treatment is that it is much safer to use than over-the-counter whitening products. The results of this process will ultimately last for a longer period than other whitening treatments. Our teeth whitening treatment is not harmful to the teeth and the same trays can also be used at later dates. ​


However, once again, this treatment can only be given to those above the age of 18.


Benefits of undergoing a whitening treatment


There are many advantages when going through the process of teeth whitening. These benefits can vary from physical and mental factors.


One of the main benefits is that it will boost an individual's confidence. Having white teeth can promote more interaction with others. It will make it easier for the individual to laugh, talk and smile in public. Their teeth will stand out as they will appear brighter.


Before undergoing any treatment, it is important to book a consultation with our dental team so that they can assess your eligibility for the treatment. This will help us determine whether teeth whitening is the right treatment for you.
