Discolouration of teeth is commonly caused by smoking and consumption of tea, coffee or soft drinks. Tooth discolouration can also be the result of certain medications, excessive fluoride, natural ageing, a lack of dental hygiene or radiation therapy.
There are different treatments available for the management of discoloured or stained teeth:
Discolouration of teeth can be removed or covered. Treatment options are:
Tooth whitening can remove tooth discolouration — common techniques involve whitening with or without a light treatment. Dr Mark Peddey takes all precautions and preparations necessary for each and every client to make sure that the solution is the best for you and will show the best long term results.
Porcelain Veneersare thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surface of the teeth. When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea or even cigarette stains.
Resin veneers are an alternative treatment option to ceramic veneers. Placing and layering resin veneers is a skill Dr. Peddey acquired under the tuition of world leading expert Dr. Newton Fahl in a 5 day hands-on clinical program in Brazil. Placement of resin veneers can often be completed in a single visit, and can improve the appearance of teeth significantly.
