Teeth Whitening Essendon VIC

Make an impression with a beautiful white smile

Your smile is the first thing people notice about you. Why leave it stained, yellowed or discoloured? Studies have found people with a brighter smile are more likely to be offered a job, given a promotion or even asked on a second date.

Refresh the look of your smile with our effective teeth whitening treatment

Tooth discolouration can be caused by a variety of factors, such as drinking tea, coffee, red wine, soft drinks, and smoking cigarettes. All these can leave your teeth with a stained or yellowed appearance. Other factors that lead to discoloured teeth are:

  • Disease
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Trauma
  • Medications
  • Dental fillings

Not all discolouration is purely cosmetic. Talk to one of the team at Marriott & Hand to find out how we can help you.

Suitable candidates for teeth whitening

When you visit Marriott & Hand in Melbourne we will assess your oral health and determine the best treatment for your specific condition.  Before we commence treatment we will first need to ascertain the cause of your discolouration.

If the reason your teeth are discoloured is cosmetic, we offer quality teeth whitening treatments to achieve a beautiful, healthy and natural-looking smile.  These options include take-home kits as well as in-office options.

If your teeth are discoloured from the inside (known as intrinsic stains), the root of the problem will need to be addressed in order to treat the discolouration. Amalgam (metal) fillings can also cause your teeth to become discoloured. The best way to treat this cause of discolouration is to replace the filling with a white filling. White fillings are matched to the shade and colour of your natural teeth so that no one will notice you’ve got a filling.

Other ways to whiten your teeth include:

  • Dental veneers
  • Crowns
  • Inlays and onlays

Veneers are thin porcelain shells bonded to the front of your teeth to conceal any imperfections. And to brighten your smile. Crowns, while mostly used for restorative purposes, are occasionally requested for cosmetic reasons. Inlays and onlays, in terms of strength and appearance, are stronger than fillings but not as strong as dental crowns.

Tooth discolouration is caused by a number of factors, including smoking and consuming foods that can cause stains and yellowing teeth such as drinks like tea, coffee and red wine. Other factors that can contribute to discolouration include age, genetics, medications, certain diseases, and dental fillings.

Teeth whitening treatments are suitable for people who experience cosmetic discolouration that affects the outside of the teeth. If your teeth are discoloured from the inside, on the other hand, the cause of the discolouration will need to be addressed before whitening can be recommended.

If a tooth whitening treatment is not appropriate for you, other options may include dental veneers, crowns, inlays, and onlays.
