Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to enhance your looks. Whether you want to add a sparkle to your smile for your wedding day or perfect your look for business meetings, teeth whitening is simple, affordable and safe.
How does teeth whitening work?
Enlighten Whitening works by increasing the tooth's permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. It is a combination treatment meaning that there is a 2 week home treatment followed by an optional 1 hour visit to the dentist.
If you require a filling in your tooth, a cosmetic option would be to choose a white filling material that matches the shade of your surrounding natural teeth. You can also have any existing metallic fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or 'white' fillings. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.
Here is how white fillings work:
Improved cosmetic appearance of filled teeth while still being able to bite and chew as usual.
Hard-wearing restorative solution.
A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or contain a very large filling.
Here is how it works:
A crown could be a good solution for you if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more appealing smile. Additionally, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.
Strengthens remaining tooth structure.
Functions like a real tooth, so you can bite and chew as usual.
