Brightening Stained or Discoloured Teeth


Discoloured teeth: Enhanced teeth whitening systems can be used to brighten your smile at minimal cost because having a winning smile can enhance your looks and confidence

Alternatively, you can have mini-makeovers that use simple techniques to produce natural looking smiles quickly and affordably. Teeth may also appear discoloured because of tooth decay.

There are many types of tooth discolouration:


You have the choice of treatments available dependant on the cause of the discolouration:

1. Veneers click here:

Veneers form an optimum treatment option if the intrinsic discolouration is severe and teeth whitening may not be powerful enough to brighten a smile, when there are multiple discoloured large fillings, or when there is a large decay area.

2. A Smile Makeover click here:

A smile makeover likewise forms an optimum treatment option if the intrinsic discolouration is severe and teeth whitening may not be powerful enough to brighten a smile, when there are multiple discoloured large fillings, with discolouration due to teeth developmental issues or when there are large decay areas and also where there are other existing cosmetic issues that need correcting such tooth wear, crowding, gaps, and/ or a narrow smile.

3. Teeth whitening: click here:

Teeth whitening is a good option providing minimal invasive dentistry when the only issue is mild intrinsic tooth discolouration. If the discolouration is moderate than the teeth whitening may need to be carried out for an extensive period. Severe intrinsic tooth discolouration requires other treatment options to be considered such as veneers.

If the discolouration is due to a poor roof filling or a poor seal then internal tooth whitening after a revised root filing will improve the colour

4. Replacement Crowns, Fillings and Bridges

Replacecent crowns, fillings and bridges require measuring and recording the shade of the neighbouring teeth accurately and using a ceramist who understands the nuances of creating a layered appearance of tooth colour taking into account the small nuances present. This involves taking digital photographs and recording and understanding the hue, value and chroma.

5. Root Filling or Re Root Filling

The removal of the infection in a tooth that requires root filling or one where the root filling is inadequate will improve the colour. This may involve removal of tooth decay which also improves the colour. Where re - root filling is carried out then internal tooth whitening is also an additional treatment often required

6. Hygiene Treatment

This is ideal when there is extrinsic tooth staining including presence of plaque and calculus.

7. Combination of above treatment options

If you are not sure which option is right for you the first step is to come in and let a dentist advise you on the correct procedure. The first initial consultation is completely free of charge.
