Many things can cause discolouration on teeth – consuming drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, and smoking can all cause teeth to become yellow. But there is no need to simply accept discoloured teeth – with Focus Dental Clinic, we can perform expert teeth whitening treatments that will restore your teeth to a more desirable natural colour and give you a brighter smile.

Whitening is a process where the tooth discolouration is ‘whitened’ to a lighter shade, giving a more natural and desirable aesthetic by removing the staining agent through chemical means.
Although many people attempt tooth whitening at home, this is not something our expert dentists recommend as it can cause tooth damage and sensitivity. When performed under professional supervision, it is a safe procedure that can restore your natural smile. Treatment results usually depend on the severity of the discolouration, but can offer incredible results. Both vital (i.e. live) and non-vital teeth (e.g. tooth with root removed) can be bleached, but tooth whitening is not effective on dental restorations such as amalgam fillings, metal or porcelain crowns, and more.
Teeth can become discoloured for various reasons. Our dentists in Southend-on-Sea will recommend the ideal method of whitening based on your oral condition after an in-office examination to establish the cause and nature of your tooth discolouration. They will also provide you with more information on the various types of whitening procedures available, duration and frequency of treatment. It may take several treatments to reach your desired shade, but we at Focus Dental Care are confident we can help you improve your smile.
