We specialise in teeth whitening and other cosmetic procedures that help restore the natural brightness of your smile.
What Causes Teeth Discolouration?
A chief contributor to teeth discolouration is inadequate dental care, which fosters the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth. Additional factors encompass smoking, the consumption of coffee, tea, or red wine, the intake of sugary and carbohydrate-rich foods, the natural aging process, and specific medications.
Teeth discolouration may, in certain instances, stem from genetic predisposition, environmental influences, or medical conditions like tooth decay or enamel erosion.
Dental Treatments for Brightening Your Smile
The presence of teeth discolouration can often trigger self-consciousness regarding one’s smile. Fortunately, there exists a range of dental treatments aimed at enhancing the visual appeal of discoloured teeth.
Veneers represent thin, tailor-made shells designed to snugly fit over the frontal surfaces of the teeth. They serve as a means to conceal stains, discolouration, and various imperfections.
Notably durable and resistant to staining, veneers offer a sustained remedy for discoloured teeth.
Dental Crowns are custom-fitted caps positioned atop teeth that have incurred damage or discolouration, aimed at enhancing their aesthetic appeal while providing protection against further deterioration. Various materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal can be utilized in their construction.
In instances where heavily discoloured teeth have sustained significant damage or prove resistant to restoration through alternative cosmetic dental treatments, dental implants may present a viable solution.
The dental implant process entails the surgical insertion of a titanium post into the jawbone, subsequently serving as a stable foundation for an artificial tooth replacement that closely mimics the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
This procedure entails the application of a tooth-coloured resin onto the tooth surfaces to conceal any stains or discolouration. Subsequently, the resin undergoes curing with the aid of a specialised light, yielding a more uniform and naturally appealing appearance.
This represents a delicate process wherein a slender layer of enamel is gently eliminated from the tooth surface using specialised gel and microabrasion instruments.
It can prove to be an efficacious method for eliminating surface stains and enhancing the visual allure of teeth affected by discolouration.
On occasion, teeth discolouration may be attributed to receding gums, a condition where the roots of teeth become exposed, resulting in a yellow or brownish appearance.
Gum grafting entails the transplantation of tissue from another oral region to the affected area, effectively concealing the roots and enhancing the aesthetic quality of the teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve assembled the most commonly posed questions regarding teeth discoloration and furnished comprehensive responses to address any queries you may have.
When employed correctly and under the supervision of a dental expert, teeth whitening products are generally considered safe and efficacious. Nevertheless, excessive or improper utilisation of these products can result in tooth sensitivity, gum inflammation, and enamel impairment.
Prior to utilising any whitening products, it’s essential to seek guidance from your dentist to verify their suitability for your teeth.
The outcomes of teeth whitening procedures can fluctuate depending on the extent of the discolouration and the treatment approach selected.
Typically, in-clinic treatments can yield results after a single visit, whereas at-home treatments may require several weeks before noticeable improvements become evident.
The longevity of teeth whitening treatment outcomes is contingent upon an individual’s oral hygiene practices and lifestyle preferences.
Typically, the results can persist for anywhere from six months to two years, but sustaining excellent oral hygiene and refraining from foods and beverages that cause staining can extend the effects.
Occasional touch-up treatments might also be required to uphold the desired level of whiteness.
